Bulldogs competitive in three-game sweep to JesuitBy: Staff Report
After sweeping Ponderosa, Folsom had the tables turned on them and were swept by Jesuit, evening its league record at 3-3 heading into another three-game set with Pleasant Grove this week.
Folsom, however, showed improvement in their series against the Marauders, despite not winning a game. In three games against Jesuit last season, Folsom was outscored 33-0. Last week the Bulldogs allowed only 17 runs and scored four, cutting the deficit from 33 runs to 13 runs.
“In comparison to the last two years, I feel we took a major step in regards to being competitive,” Folsom coach Gilbert Brewer said. “We came in confident in the first game and lost our cool, but we learned from it. We lost a very close game Wednesday and then faced their ace Friday and were in it until the end. We turned the corner in that we weren’t awestruck by a very good Jesuit team. That shows we believe we can compete with anyone and that’s what we ask of them.”
Folsom lost to Pleasant Grove Monday, 8-1. The Bulldogs play host to the Eagles Wednesday before traveling to Elk Grove Friday to face the Eagles again.
