Vacaville Bulldogs got the best of the Freshman Dons last Saturday 12-3. Maybe it was the long car ride or maybe it was all the headline coronavirus news, but the Dons just couldn’t match the Bulldogs hitting power this time around. Vacaville got on the board in the first inning, scattered a few more runs in the middle innings and unfortunately had a huge final inning to really tilt the score.
Joseph Castelli started on the mound for Acalanes and although he gave up 8 hits, he also struck out 10 batters and walked zero. Ellis Burger pitched in relief. The Dons defense will look to give better support to the pitching staff going forward. Highlights for the Dons offense: Kyle Bielawski went 2/3 at the plate, Mason Michlitsch had five stolen bases on the day and the team had 13. Acalanes batters collected 7 hits on the day.
Next game is a double header at Campolindo on Sat. March 7th 11 am. Come support your Dons baseball!
