The Riverdogs left the bases loaded in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings – scoring only one run during this span.

HG finished 5-3 in the second half of the league’s regular season and placed second overall with a 12-4 record.

The runner-up finish earned the Riverdogs a home game in the first round of the league playoffs. HG will host Mount Calvary Sunday at 1 p.m. The winner advances to the best 2-of-3 championship series against Cleveland which won both halves of the regular season which gave them a firstround bye.

Forest took a 9-5 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning when Sam Warner ripped a three-run double.

“They came up with the big hit and we did not. Forrest is a good team and we did not play well enough to win,” said HG player-manager Mark Holzman.

Zach Fritz led the Riverdogs in hits with three. Austin Edge, Cole Reinemann, Noah Steines and Holzman had two each. Reinemann’s two-run double keyed a three-run second which tied the game, 5-5.

Edge took the loss in relief. He pitched 7-1/3 innings and allowed three earned runs on six hits with five strikeouts and three walks.
