Bulldogs crush Cubs in finale
Braham 13, Chisago Lakes 10
The Bulldogs lost a wild one to the Braham Snappers 13-10 at home on Friday, July 16.  The strange game included three four-strikeout innings, four Bulldogs hit by pitches – including the same player three times – five Bulldogs reaching first on dropped third strikes, a bad call that led to two Snapper runs and a bizarre play that stopped a Bulldog rally.
