Copperas Cove’s District 8-5A slide continued Tuesday as Ellison earned a 9-7 victory at home, extending the Bulldawgs’ losing streak to three games in the process.

Despite recording its most runs since beating Killeen 13-3 in the district opener, Copperas Cove’s effort was in vain as the Eagles used a seven-run outburst in the fourth inning to build a 9-4 advantage.

The Bulldawgs responded by scoring twice in the fifth inning before adding their final run in the seventh inning.

Ryan Dorroh went 2 for 3 with a RBI and scored a run for Copperas Cove, while teammates Kyle Winstead, Michael Hays, Derris Prater and Michael Sizemore posted one hit apiece.

With the loss, Copperas Cove falls to 9-6-1 overall and 2-3 in district heading into tonight’s game against Temple. Start time is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Lady Bulldawgs cruise to victory

Copperas Cove was never threatened at home Tuesday, scoring 16 unanswered runs in a four-inning, shutout victory.

Led by Angel Mullen, who went 3 for 3 with a RBI and scored three runs, the Lady Bulldawgs produced 13 hits, following up a five-run first inning by scoring seven runs in the second inning.

Veronica Marshall and Rachel Jost finished with a pair of hits apiece for Copperas Cove, while teammates Carlee Duran, Destiny Henderson and Tayler Hammack each had two RBIs.

Duran also earned the victory on the mound, pitching a one-hitter and striking out four batters.

The Lady Bulldawgs (13-11, 5-3 District 8-5A) return to the diamond tonight, traveling to Shoemaker for a 7 p.m. start.
