The Bigs thumped the 3 Cheers Pub Bud Light Dodgers 7-1, while the Bulldogs blanked NTV Hitmen 6-0.

The Bigs used the long ball to beat the Dodgers, with Mike Noftall, Stephen Jesso and winning pitcher Mark Power each hitting two-run home runs.

Sean Cleary scattered three hits and struck out 13, and Blair Ezekiel had two hits, including a two-run home run, to pace the Bulldogs. Tyler Wall also had two hits and homered, his first career senior league dinger.

Robbie Greene (3IP, 4R, 4H, 3BB, 7K) started and was tagged with the loss. Lee Cose (3IP, 2R, 4H, 2BB, 1K) pitched in relief.
