Since dropping a heartbreaking 3-2 decision in their first league game two weeks ago, the Cranston Bulldogs have reeled off four consecutive victories to take over first place in the Northern Division in Rhode Island Connie Mack Baseball.
This past week saw the Bulldogs win a thrilling extra-inning game against Warwick 3-2 in eight innings. Solid pitching, a strongpoint of the Bulldogs all season, led the way as Tyler Donahay and Anthony Cafone limited Warwick to just five hits while allowing no walks and striking out eleven.
Three consecutive hits by Tyler Collins, Donahay and Cody Lindell in the eighth brought home the winning run.
On Saturday against Flood Auto (Hendricken), timely hitting and another strong pitching performance by the Bulldogs staff carried Cranston to a 14-4 victory in seven innings. Dan McDonough and Dan Miller scattered nine hits while holding Flood at bay. On the offensive side Alex Figueiredo, Donahay, Travis Collins and Damon Raposa each had two RBI for the Bulldogs.
