Delgado opened 2011 Miss-Lou Conference play by splitting its doubleheader against Baton Rouge Community College on Saturday afternoon at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.
In the first game, Baton Rouge’s Joshua Powell pitched a scoreless game to hand the Dolphins their fifth loss of the season. The Dolphin bats were responsible for nine hits, but failed to score on the opportunities. Chad Gough-Fortenberry went 2-3 with a single and a double to lead the Delgado offense. Brent Bonvillain picked up his first loss of the 2011 campaign as the Dolphins fell 7-0.
Delgado broke the 1-1 tie in the second game in the fifth inning when Daniel Brockhoeft’s double scored Scott Fabre, who had reached on a lead-off single. The Dolphins would pick up two insurance runs in the sixth on two sacrifice flies to secure their 4-1 victory and the doubleheader split. Jake Fabre went the distance on the mound for Delgado, allowing one run on three hits while striking out eight Bear batters and walking only two.
With the split, Delgado goes 25-5 on the year. The two teams will conclude the weekend series on Sunday with a single, 9-inning contest at 1:00 at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.
