Artesia Bulldogs end Carlsbad Cavemen’s perfect season on diamond

The Artesia Bulldogs found a way to deal with a rough fourth inning while the Carlsbad Cavemen will ask themselves how to avoid another game when the team’s only offensive production comes in a single inning.

Carlsbad (5-1) fell from the undefeated ranks against rival Artesia (4-3) after squandering a three-run inning midway through the game. The Bulldogs were able to regroup and made the most off Carlsbad’s unforced errors and ended its non-district schedule with a big emotional win, 5-3.
