RICHMOND - Burgin gave up a run in the bottom of the seventh to lose the first game of a doubleheader to Model, then saw its defense leave it high and dry in a second-game rout Saturday.
The Bulldogs lost 3-2 to Model in the first game while committing no errors, but committed 11 miscues in the second to lose 11-1 in six innings.
Burgin scored once in the top of the seventh in the opener to tie the game, but Model answered with a run of its own in the bottom half to win. Daniel Howard gave up six hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings of work.
"Daniel Howard proved he is one of, probably the best sophomore pitcher around," Burgin coach Terry Pitman said. "We just had no offense and no one really wanted to take the game over."
