Lefty Tyler Mansfield fires to the plate in the loss to Bartow. Mansfield did a nice job coming in the game in relief of the starter in the first inning. He kept the game close but the Bulldogs were never able to close the gap and lost 9-1. Mansfield gave up just one run in 2 2/3 innings against the hard hitting team from Bartow.

On Sunday both DeSoto pitchers Braden Steele and Casey Daniels looked like they were throwing aspirins to the plate. On Monday the pitches must have looked like beach balls as the Bartow team touched them up for eight runs in their 9-1 win over the Bulldogs.

Steele only lasted one-third of an inning and gave up four runs on two hits and four walks. Daniels also gave up four runs in his two innings of work. Between the two right-handers, southpaw Tyler Mansfield pitched a nice game. He came on with just one out in the opening inning and got out of a jam to keep the Bulldogs in the game. Mansfield went two and two-thirds innings and gave up just one run.
