After the game being rained out multiple times earlier in the season, Red Bud finally was able to face off against Dupo on May 6. The team sent Caleb Langrehr to the mound where he went seven innings giving up five hits, three runs, two earned, and five strikeouts.
The Tigers scored one run in the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead. Red Bud could not answer until the third inning with an RBI from Parker Van Dorn. Langrehr kept Dupo’s offense subdued as the Musketeer’s bats were held in check and struggled to score until the top of the seventh when Gage Baldwin batted in Austin Melliere to break the 1-1 tie. The Tigers rallied after a walk and an error to score two runs and win on a walk-off single. The final score was 3-2.
Red Bud looked to bounce back from the disappointing loss on Tuesday at Roxana. Parker Van Dorn got the start. Van Dorn made quick work of the Shell’s offense in the first inning before running into trouble in the second inning. Roxana was able to score eight runs in the inning after Red Bud was unable to end the inning on six different opportunities.
