“I thought our team performed well Tuesday, but we could definitely get better at executing the routine plays,” Kastner said. “Our bats came more alive towards the middle of the game and we had some big hits in crucial parts of the game.”

Kastner, and fellow seniors Anthony Monguso and John Holland each contributed two hits apiece and junior Jeffrey Carrier added a single with a run scored for Dayton (3-0), which has outscored its opponents, 33-6, in its first three games of the season.

The Bulldogs continue the week with two straight home games at Ruby Field, hosting Hillside on Thursday at 4 p.m., and Barringer on Saturday at 11 a.m.
