“Ottawa is a good team,” Brenneman said. “It would’ve been nice to pull this one out, but the effort was good and I see us getting better at a couple positions.”

CELINA — The New Bremen  baseball team had its chances as Celina pitchers walked 11 batters, but six Cardinal errors allowed the Bulldogs to stay undefeated with a 10-2 victory over the Cardinals at Montgomery Field on Friday.

“We walked a lot and left a lot of batters on,” Cardinals head coach Josh Bowersock said. “We also got picked off a lot. We had errors, we got picked off and we lose the ballgame. When you look at the errors and the times we got picked off and that was the basis of the game.”
