OKLAHOMA CITY â€” The Eastern Oklahoma Riverdawgs Major American Legion baseball team suffered a road loss to the Oklahoma City Bulls by a score of 7-1 Saturday afternoon at Dolese Park.
Things started off good for the Riverdawgs as an RBI single by Cameron's Dale Pearson scored Spiro's Joe T. Ross to make it 1-0 in favor of the locals in the opening inning. But that would prove to be their only run.
The Bulls tied the game at 1-1 in the second inning, then had a stretch of four straight innings of scoring runs beginning with the fifth inning.
