Dexter, Chelsea, and Tecumseh are all tied at the top of the conference with 11-4 records. Tecumseh holds the tie-breaker over both the Dreadnaughts and Bulldogs if they finish tied at the end of the season.

Drake Doyle singled in the winning run in the bottom of the sixth in the opener Monday as Dexter took a 4-3 decision.

Chelsea took a 1-0 lead in the third, but the Dreads answered with an RBI triple by Alex Mills and an RBI single by Grant Stehley for a 2-1 lead after three.

The Bulldogs tied it at two in the fourth and it stayed that way until the fifth when a David Kreske sacrifice fly gave the Dreads a 3-2 lead.

Chelsea tied it again at 3-3 in the top of the sixth, but Dexter started the bottom of the inning putting the first two runners on with an error and a single. A sac fly moved the runner to third and a passed ball advanced the runner to second with one out when Doyle drove in the winning run with an infield single to third for a 4-3 lead.

Ryan Schoch retired the Bulldogs in order in the seventh to end the game. He finished with seven strikeouts to earn the win.

Mack Martin and Ryan Moore each had two hits to lead the offense. Mills, Stehley, and Doyle each had a hit and RBI.

Dexter took an early 6-2 lead in the second game and held on for a 7-6 win.

Chelsea cut the lead to 7-6 in the sixth and loaded the bases with two out, but a strikeout ended the threat.

Ben Cabana put the Bulldogs down in order in the seventh, striking out three in one and 2/3 innings of work for the save.

Martin struck out six for the win.

Owen Huard led the offense with three hits and an RBI. Martin had two hits and two RBI, Stehley two hits and an RBI, Doyle a hit and two RBI, and Moore a hit and RBI.
