Matadors take two from the Bulldogs

On Wednesday afternoon, the Borger Bulldogs traveled to Lubbock for a two game series with traditional West Texas 3A power, the Lubbock Estacado Matadors.Unfortunately, the Bulldogs ended up on the losing end on both games as the Matadors won game one, 3-2, and game two, 11-1.In game one, senior lefty Chayse Tracy pitched a good game, limiting the Matadors to only three runs. But the Bulldogs struggled to get much going offensively. Borger junior Kota Dillard hit a single which set up senior Max Lusk to hit a two run home run for the Bulldogs’ two runs in the game.Through the early part of the 2012 season, pitching woes have plagued the Bulldogs and in game two those problems crept up once again as the Bulldogs went through three pitchers in their 11-1 loss.Lusk had the hot bat on Wednesday in both games, hitting two singles and two doubles to go along with the two-run home run.The Bulldogs are now 1-7 for the season and will return to the field on Friday taking on Amarillo River Road in a doubleheader, beginning at noon in Amarillo.The Bulldogs’ next home game is on Tuesday, March 20th against Bushland at 4:30 p.m.
