COLUMBUS, Ind. -- The Columbus North baseball team allowed two runs over two innings Monday (May 19), but the Bull Dogs held on to prevail 6-2 in the conclusion of a game that began last Tuesday (May 13).

When the game began, junior Evan Finke produced a single, a double and an RBI to help the Bull Dogs to a 6-0 lead when the game was suspended in the bottom of the fifth because of rain.
Freshman Cooper Trinkle, sophomore Collin Lollar, junior Josh Hogan and sophomore Hunter Liggett also had hits in the first four innings for the Bull Dogs. Hogan and Liggett added doubles in the final two innings.
Senior Christian Glass pitched the first five innings last week, then hurled the final two innings on Monday for a complete game. He allowed just five hits while striking out eight for the game.
The Bull Dogs took a 5-0 lead in the first inning when they brought 10 batters to the plate. Sophomore Canaan Baum started things when he was hit by a pitch, and Finke followed with a double to drive Baum home. Junior Cody Burton reached on an error with Finke scoring.
Senior Will Dorenbusch also reached on an error, and Liggett, Hogan and Lollar followed with consecutive singles to cap the five-run burst.
CN added a run in the second inning. Baum reached on an error, moved to second on a passed ball and went to third on a Finke fly out. Baum then scored on a Burton sacrifice fly.
When play resumed, Perry Meridian tallied single runs in the sixth and seventh innings, but it was not enough for the Falcons.
Columbus North returns to action at 6 p.m. Tuesday (May 20) when it faces Southport at Holder Field in Indianapolis for its final CI game of the season.
