Bulldogs keep rolling, beat Pampa 13-3

April 18, 2011

In an era where television shows, movies and music from the 1970’s and 1980’s is revamped for a new generation, perhaps it would be fitting to call this year’s version of the Borger Bulldogs the “Big Red Machine” for the way the team continues to hit the ball in District 1-3A play.
For the fourth game in a row, the Bulldogs put on another hitting clinic on Saturday afternoon that included two three-run homers and a two-run homer on their way to getting a 13-3 win over the Pampa Harvesters in five innings.

Unfortunately, Pampa would rally to take the game 15-12 to send Borger to 3-4 in District 1-3A play.
With Dalhart’s loss to Perryton on Saturday, the Lady Bulldogs still sit in second place with a one game lead over Dalhart and Perryton in the district race, with two games to go in the regular season.
