GERING, NE- The Sabre Dogs suffered their worst loss of the season Saturday night against the Western Nebraska Pioneers with a final score of 16-0.
Nothing worked well for the Dogs Saturday night. They were shut out for the first time this year as they were only able to get three hits. However, Phillip Childs was still able to get a multi-hit day as he finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base. That is just the kind of season Childs is having as the All-Star was trying to spark the team’s offense, but they were only able to get one more hit from Josh Paino.
At the All-Star break, the pitching staff lost a few arms, so they went with Cody Waters to start. This was his second start of the season, and he had been pitching well as of late, so the decision made sense. Unfortunately, Saturday night was not his night. The relievers also struggled as well.
The Sabre Dogs will try to escape Gering with one win. Game four of the series is Sunday evening at 5:35 p.m.
