But in the bottom of the third, the CeeBees tied it up as Liv Ammons layed down a bunt and scored a runner.
Then the Bulldogs started heating up in the top of the sixth inning. First, Doddridge scored on a passed ball to take the lead 2-1.
Then Alexxus Paugh nailed in 2 RBI to give the Bulldogs a 4-1 lead at the end of six innings.
