Bulldogs baseball team off to a good start

The University of Redlands baseball team began SCIAC play the past weekend by taking two out of three games against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, the last coming in walkoff fashion.

Senior catcher Jefre Johnson has led the offense thus far, hitting .429 (9-for-21). He has four doubles, a triple and a home run.

Junior outfielder Nate Carlson already has collected 11 RBI, three of those coming on a home run in the ninth that was the difference against CMS in the series finale on Saturday.

Next up for the Bulldogs (4-1, 2-1) is a three-game set against traditional power University of La Verne (2-3, 0-0). Redlands will host the single game at 2:30 p.m. on Friday with the twinbill at La Verne on Saturday getting underway at 11 a.m.
