“That’s just the way the game goes,” Bulldogs coach Kenny Miller said. “We played well and they played well. It was just a good high school baseball game and we came up on the short end.”
St. Anthony’s best shot against Waldhoff came in the top of the sixth. After the first two Bulldog hitters grounded out, Hecht drew a walk and went to second when Eli Dasenbrock reached on an error. But Waldhoff induced a routine popup from Austin Bushur to escape trouble.
The Bulldogs also got a leadoff walk from Jacob Lorenz in the third, but Waldhoff got out of that when Hecht bounced into a 6-4-3 double play.
Teutopolis left the bases loaded in the second, and standed runners at second and third in the fifth.
