Bendigo East hosted the Strathfieldsaye Dodgers in Round 8 of the Bendigo Baseball Association last Sunday.

In the Division 1 match, Bendigo East looked in control the whole game, led by pitcher Charlie Hay.

The Dodgers mounted a comeback in the last inning, scoring seven runs to take a 9-5 lead, before Bendigo East  narrowed the margin to two runs.

The game was called before the inning could be played out, reverting the score back to 5-2 in favour of Bendigo East.

“It’s not the ideal way to win a game, it definitely feels like we have dodged a bullet,” Bendigo East Division 1 manager AJ Sherriff said after the game.

In the Division 2 game, Bendigo East won a high scoring contest 12-10, with Kaileb Anglin starring with three base hits for Bendigo East.

The Dodgers will look to bounce back on Sunday when they host the Falcons in Strathfieldsaye and Bendigo East will visit Scots in Eaglehawk, in a bid to extend their winning streak.
