The entire Hotchkiss baseball team awaits the arrival of Jacobe Galley after he clouted a grand slam home run against Basalt’s Longhorns in game one of doubleheader action last Saturday in Basalt. Galley’s blast came in the second inning and gave Hotchkiss a 7-1 lead. The two wins in Basalt enabled the Bulldogs to pull even (15-2) with Rifle after a Bear’s loss to Gunnison.
The weekend couldn't have gone any better. After defeating Cedaredge on April 24 (see related story) and claiming wins over Basalt Saturday and Aspen Monday, the Bulldogs are tied for first in 3A Western Slope League competition.
