STAPLES — The Otter Tail Central Bulldogs played the underdog roll in Tuesday’s Section 6AA playoff battle versus Staples-Motley.
Lucky for OTC, it had a ‘dog’ in the fight as the Bulldogs upset the Cardinals 4-2.
OTC was the first to strike as Nick Trosdahl and Micah Rogness hit back-to-back RBI doubles to take a 2-0 lead in the fourth. The Cardinals responded with two runs of its own in the bottom half of the inning.
In the fifth, Zach Torgerson put the Bulldogs back on top with an RBI single and scored on another Trosdahl RBI double. Staples could not break through as Torgerson allowed only three hits to the Cardinals in the win.
Trosdahl led the Bulldog hitters going two for four with two RBI and a run scored, while teammate Jakob Bradsteen went two for three in the game.
The Bulldogs will now travel to Faber Field in St. Cloud Wednesday to take on Pierz in a 5 p.m. match up.
