Baseball: Bulldogs fare well at home

The Butler baseball team had little time to rest during the school’s spring break, as the Bulldogs (10-10, 2-1) took on four different teams in nine games.

Butler fared well overall, going 7-3 during the stretch.

The Bulldogs’ most recent activity was a three-game series against conference foe Valparaiso that concluded Sunday afternoon.

Butler captured two victories in the set, winning 13-8 today and 5-4 in 10 innings on Friday. In the second game of the series, the Crusaders (5-14, 1-2) picked up a 13-8 win.

The three-game tilt capped a 19-game road trip for Valparaiso.

On March 14, the Bulldogs hosted Marian (1-12) and came away with a 12-6 victory.

A contest against Western Kentucky (8-10) the day before featured a much different result, as Butler dropped a 13-1 decision.

From March 9-11, the Bulldogs played host to Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne for four games.

Butler took three of the four contests, winning 6-4 in the first game, 4-2 in the second game and 11-4 in the fourth game.

The Mastodons (4-13) captured a 7-1 victory in the third game of the series.

The Bulldogs will stay in Indianapolis to take on Cincinnati on Tuesday before hosting Horizon League opponent Wright State for three games over the weekend.
