The Salem Tigers outhit the Rolla Bulldogs, 7-1 in the game, but did not capitalize on their chances as the Bulldogs beat the Tigers, 3-1. The Bulldogs took advantage of a passed ball on a missed suicide squeeze attempt to score their first run, then used two Salem Tiger errors to score two runs in the fourth inning. Salem’s only run came on back-to-back doubles by Matt Whitaker and Brad Lewis in the 5th inning. Grant Gordon pitched very well for Salem giving up just the one hit, walked five and struck out eight in taking the loss. Michael Martin for Rolla went 5 2/3rds innings and gave up the one run on seven hits and walked three in getting the win. Salem drops to 11-6 on the year and they will host Iberia Thursday at 5:00.
