CROWN POINT (05-04-2019) Playing in their second game of a morning/afternoon doubleheader on Saturday, May 4, after defeating the Valparaiso Vikings 3-1 in the first game, the Crown Point Bulldogs welcomed a tough opponent with a dominant pitcher.

Against the Northwest Crossroads Conference’s Andrean 59ers, the Bulldogs’ lineup got put to the test against right-handed starting pitcher Michael Doolin.

The senior for Andrean cruised throughout most of the game, retiring 12-straight Bulldogs at one point, helping the 59ers to a 3-1 victory.

Andrean scored their first two runs in the top of the third and fourth innings respectively, both coming on errors. In the third, junior Jake Mullen tallied the first run as senior Joel Holtcamp reached second on a two-base error.

Then in the fourth, freshman Connor Misch scored on a throwing error by Crown Point junior catcher Tim Darche.

After Andrean took a 3-0 advantage in the top of the seventh on a Holtcamp RBI single scoring junior Tyler Nelson, the Bulldogs avoided the shutout in the bottom half of the inning as senior Alex Rich came home following junior Zach Stubitsch reaching first base on an error.
