The season came to an end this weekend as the University of Michigan swept the Bulldogs. Game 1 1-0, Game 2 17-0, and Game 3 3-1. We would like to thank all of our parents, families, and friends for coming to our games and showing their support. Thanks so much for keeping us fed, it was much appreciated. GoDawgs!
Week 22 4/22-4/28/2013
Lack of timely hitting in games 1 and 2, and errors in game 3 lead to the Bulldogs to being swept by Northwood University. In game 1 of the series the Dawgs were down 2-1 going into the top of the 7th and manufactured a run by a lead off walk from Halm. Northwood came back in the bottom of the inning to win on a walk off single. Final score 3-2. In game 2 of the series, the Dawgs were down 5-2 in the top of the 4th, when Mead hit a 3R homerun to tie the game at 5-5. In the bottom of the inning Northwood got a run back and never gave the lead back winning the game 6-5. In game 3, the Dawgs got off to a fast start scoring 2 runs in the 1st, 3 in the 2nd, and 2 in the 3rd. However the defense couldn't hold the lead by committing 3 errors in the first two innings and allowing 7 runs. From there Northwood never looked back winning the game 11-9.
Congradulations to Kyle Mead for being the conference player of the week!

The Bulldogs were off this week for the Easter Holiday
Week 17 3/18/13- 3/24/13
The weekend games against Michigan were postponded due to bad weather and bad field conditions.
Week 16 3/11/13-3/17/13
The Bulldogs completed week 3 of the NCBA Spring Training in Plant City Fl with a 1-7 record. Our record doesn't not reflect how we played throughout the week. Three of our losses to Indiana, North Dakota State, and Illinois State were by a combined 4 runs. The loss to Illinois State came in the bottom of the 7th, when Illinois State did a suicide squeeze for the winning run. The loss to Indiana, came in the bottom of the 8th inning. The lone win of our trip was against Ohio State. We beat them 10-9 in 8 innings. If we play to our capability, like we did agaisnt some good teams in Florida, we should be able to compete for a Great Lakes North conference championship. The Dawgs will be in action this upcoming weekend at the University of Michigan on Saturday and Sunday.
Congratulations to Collin Proksch for being the conference player of the week and to Tyler Desjardins on being the conference pitcher of the week.
Week 5 10/8/12-10/14/12
The Bulldogs played four games this fall and went 1-3. The first double header was against Grand Valley State University on 9-22-12. We split that series. We got back to work at practice and came out with a much better showing against Central Michigan on 9-30-12. Although we lost both games of the double header we played much better than the previous week. We have a long ways to go to be the team that we know we can be and we will be putting in a lot of hard work over the rest of the fall and winter to get ready for the season. Go Dawgs!
