MARSHALL — Field conditions forced a move, but the Carthage didn’t let it other them at all Monday as they opened the 2020 season.

Playing at East Texas Baptist, the Bulldogs pounded out nine hits and used a five-run fourth inning to take control of things in an 11-2 win over Marshall.

Brandon McKeely tripled, doubled and drove in a run for Carthage. Si Schumacher added a double, single and an RBI and Jackson Blissett drove in two runs.

The Mavericks were led at the plate by Payton McMullen with two hits.
