Game 1 vs Kentucky Buccaneers — 5-3 (Loss)
The Dawgs 18U Black could not get the offence rolling in game 1 of the double header, scattering 8 hits while managing to put only 3 runs up on the board. Ben Tighe would get the loss coming into the game out of the bullpen. Tight pitched 3.1 IP allowing 2 runs on 1 hit while walking 4 and striking out 3 batters.

Game 2 vs Evansville Leathernecks — 5-1 (Win)
In a game that would determine 2nd place in pool play, the Dawgs put together one of their best team games to this point in the tournament. Zach Demchenko got the ball, in what would be his last start as a Dawg, and would go on to steal the spotlight. Demchenko pitched a complete game allowing 1 run on 4 hits, while striking out 9 batters. Offensively, it was a team effort and good execution of situational hitting. Standouts included; Jacob Bouzide 1-for-2 with a run scored, Justin King 1-for-3 with a single and run scored, LaRon Smith 2-for-3 with a double and single, Ashton Roy 1-for-1 with a double and 2 RBIs and Aaron Bender 1-for-3 with an RBI single.
The Dawgs play tomorrow at 11:15 am vs Mizuno Braves at Butler University.
