CORNERSVILLE — An eight-run fourth-inning was more than enough to land the Cornersville Bulldogs their second win of the week on Tuesday night against visiting Santa Fe.
Cornersville scored in every inning and plated a 14th run in the bottom of the fifth to reach the 10-run rule limit as the ‘Dawgs beat Santa Fe, 14-4.

But starting pitcher Peyton Cherry settled in and locked down the Wildcats’ bats through the final three innings.
He gave up just four runs on four hits, but only one of which was earned, while striking out 11 batters in the process.
With Cherry dealing on the mound, the Bulldogs’ bats took care of Santa Fe pitching through the remainder of the game.
Gage Lovell went 2-for-2 with two RBIs to his credit.
Tanner Pease also went 2-for-2 with a double and two runs driven in as well.
Beau Schillig accounted for the other extra base hit for Cornersville as he went 1-for-3 with an RBI as well.
