Blaine Caldwell struck out 15 Horseshoe Bend batters, and Jacob Marable drove home two runs with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate as Wadley picked up its first win of the season, 5-2 over the Generals Friday in Wedowee.
Caldwell went the distance on the mound, scattering six hits and allowing just one earned run without issuing a walk for his first win of the year.
Wadley held a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the fourth, but the Bulldogs pushed two more runs across on an RBI single by Marable and a Justin Fulghum sacrifice fly. And that 5-2 advantage was plenty for Caldwell.
The starting pitcher also went 1-for-3 with a walk and scored two runs out of the leadoff spot.
