Niagara Gazette — Cullen slashed a lethal liner, caught by relief pitcher Jordan Paxson in self-defense. Double play, again. “They made one more big play than we did,” said Santorio. “The thing is, all the guys who played who sometimes don’t, they came up big.”
Adam Stanczyk had three hits and a walk, Cullen reached base twice before the fatal liner and Lenz brought the chilly throng to its feet with a Fuccillo-sized homer in the fifth, far beyond, even, Chris Foote’s Wednesday grand slam.
Tyler Shaw ignited the Bulldogs’ big insurance rally in the sixth and fan-of-the-day honors went to a sweetie of a Bullpup about 8 years old who would write “Go Dawgs” into a spiral notebook and rip out the sheets for fans to hold aloft. On Friday, she earned another day’s work.Contact Doug Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
