The Mexico Lady Bulldogs remain undefeated after beating Moberly Lady Spartans 3-2 Wednesday (a game which was to be played in Mexico, but due to Wednesday's downpour and already wet field it was moved to Moberly).

Abby Dick hit a double to score Anne Baker and Test. Tori Shaw then hit a sac fly to left field to score Ashlie Woodruff, who was the courtesy runner for Madi White.
Danielle Baumgartner hit a single in the first and a double in the 7th and Anne Baker had a single in the 5th.
Moberly scored 1 run in the 1st and 1 run in the 4th.
Baumgartner was the pitcher for the Lady Bulldogs. She recorded 10 strikeouts, no walks, and allowed 3 hits. She is now 3-0 on the season. Karen Baker is 1-0.
"Moberly played a great game against us tonight. They made several great defensive plays and were ready to go. This type of game makes us better. We learn to make adjustments and keep playing hard," stated Mexico Coach Christina Gerber.
The Lady Bulldogs are 4-0 overall and in conference play. They are back on the road tonight when they travel to Fulton.
