FREMONT, NE- The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs were unable to win their first game in Fremont as they lost with the final score of 13-12 to drop their fifth game in a row Monday night.
The Sabre Dogs looked like they were on their way to winning their first game since the All-Star Break after getting up 8-1 after the top of the third. The Moo had others plans as they were able to score in every inning for the rest of the game. Fremont got eight unanswered runs to take a 9-8 after the sixth. From there, the game was back and forth in which the Moo were able to get the last laugh with a three-RBI double from first baseman Jack Simonsen to make it 13-11. The Dogs got one more run in the top of the ninth, but were unable to extend the game.
The Sabre Dogs were desperately needing some offense after they struggled against the tough Western Nebraska pitching staff. Bo McClintock went 2-for-2 with three-RBI with all of them being via the sac-fly. Phillip Childs stayed hot as he had the most hits for the Sabre Dogs with a 3-for-4 day with three runs. Four other Sabre Dogs had two-hit days as well (Mason Dinesen, Crews Taylor, Josh Paino, and Sam Powers). Justin Henle took advantage of the wind blowing out to right field with his second home run of the season.
The Sabre Dogs will need to continue to hit well with the pitching staff short-handed. They will face the Moo again Tuesday night at 6:35 p.m.
