The Altus Bulldogs managed just two hits yesterday in a match-up with Elk City.

Altus fell 5-1 against a stingy defense and a quality arm from Elk City.

The score was knotted at 0-0 heading into the fifth inning. Elk City followed up a lead-off triple with a single and a double. Jackson Herring got two strike outs to end the attack at 2-0.

Altus failed to execute on several opportunities to advance runners. Bunt calls from coach Jon Lamb were popped up and offensive innings were stalled out.

The Bulldogs are 2-2 on the season and will enter the Cache Tournament on Thursday.

The 7th grade Baseball Festival will be at Western Oklahoma State College on Thursday and Friday.
