REIDLAND, Ky. -- The Sikeston Bulldogs split their games during the second day of the Reidland Invitational baseball tournament on Saturday.

The Bulldogs defeated Heath High School 7-6 and lost 5-0 to Calloway, Ken.

Clayton Driskill hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit double in the fifth inning against Heath that held up for the Bulldogs, who had 11 hits in the game, to take the win.

Cord Sheehy picked up the win after 4 1/3 innings on the mound. He gave up six runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out eight.

Patrick Smith went 2-4 with a home run and three RBI, while Tyler Anderson added another home run. Trent McMillan went 3 for 4 with a double.

Sophomore Jared Sandlin received the loss going five innings and giving up both runs (one earned) on five hits. He also struck out four.
