Bulldogs Beats South Dearborn Behind Roell’s No-Hitter

Alex Roell was brilliant on the mound on Thursday, as he threw a no-hitter to lead Batesville past South Dearborn 2-0.

The pitching was strong on both sides. Senior Alex Roell earned the win for the Bulldogs and struck out two, while South Dearborn’s Rose sat down seven. Roell pitched five innings, giving up zero runs, zero hits, striking out two, and walking one. Rose took the loss for South Dearborn. He threw five and a third innings, giving up two runs, four hits, and striking out seven.

The only runs on the day were from Jacob Christie’s one out double in the third inning, as he plated Trey Heidlage and Zach Britton.

Jack Blomer, Jacob Christie, Joe Bohman, and Quinn Werner each managed one hit to lead the Bulldogs.

The win makes the Bulldogs 8-5 overall and tied for first in the EIAC with a 4-1 record. Batesville will compete against North Decatur (10 am) and Connersville (6:00 pm) on Saturday evening.
