Bulldogs beat Marshall for first time in six years


Mexico baseball was victorious over North Central Missouri Conference foe Marshall on Thursday night at home. The Bulldogs haven't been able to say that since 2017 as the victory snapped a nine-game losing streak to the reigning Class 4 fourth-place Owls.

Seven Bulldogs drove in runs, including Austin Maxwell. On the mound, Maxwell held Marshall hitless through four innings while striking out five.

Mexico junior varsity won 9-0 in five innings. Tyson Carr held the Owls to two walks and one hit through five innings while striking out eight. Jaydon Eldridge had a two-RBI double, and Kaden Benne drove in two runs.
