By DC WOOD , 06/24/19, 9:30AM EDT


The Bullets and Mallards split their DH Sunday at Greenbriar with the Bullets coming back from a 4-1 deficit to win 5-4 in game 1.  The Mallards took Game 2, 8-1. 

In game 1, after the Bullets grabbed an early 1-0 lead, the Bullets' Mildenstein walked the bases loaded in the 3rd inning before the Mallards' T. McCarthy hit a grand slam. The Bullets cut the deficit to 4-2 in the bottom of the 3rd and then rallied for 3 in the bottom of the 6th to retake a slim 5-4 lead.  In the 7th, the Mallards had the tying and go-ahead runners in scoring position before the Bullets' Narvaiz, who relieved Mildenstein, got the next Mallards batter to groundout to end the game. Mildenstein got the win and Narvaiz earned the save.

In game 2, the Mallards' O'Donnell was magnificent on the mound earning a complete game win. He gave up only 3 hits (2 of them to Bullets' Klein) and struck out 8. Gill had a leadoff solo HR and Witkowski had a 2-run HR in the game. The Bullets and Mallards season series is tied 2-2. The teams will meet for a 5th time Friday night at Langley HS to decide the season series.
