The Bayside Bulldogs 13U team started their season Sunday in convincing fashion with a double-header sweep of the Long Island Rebels in National Junior Baseball League play.
Rocco Odell and Nick Watts led the way with three hits and three RBIs each on the day while Christian Cardenas reached base six times.
Jonathon Lowe was the winning pitcher in Game 1, allowing one unearned run in the 6-3 victory.
In Game 2, Chris Athens captured the win throwing five innings of shutout ball followed by strong relief efforts by both Vincent Montalbano and John Yianalis.
In their second year of existence, the Bulldogs, coached by John Smith and John Zucchi, look to follow their inaugural season championship in the Long Island Baseball Association with similar results in NJBL, solidifying their place as one of the city’s elite travel baseball organizations.
