It was a perfect day to be at the ballpark as the Plainview-Elgin-Millville Bulldogs topped the Fillmore Central/Lanesboro Falcons in Three Rivers Conference action Tuesday afternoon. The Bulldogs stayed aggressive on the basepaths and had some clutch hitting to get the 12-3 win over the Falcons on Cool 104.

The Bulldogs were led by their catcher, Delaney Newcomb who was brilliant at the plate going 2-for-4 with two, two-RBI singles to help extend the lead.
Kelsey Biel hit a solo home run for the Falcons in the 4th to make it 6-2, but the Bulldogs were able to tack on a few more runs throughout the game by advancing on the bases. The Bulldogs as a team had six stolen bases and took extra bases at every opportunity possible.
