The News-Enterprise For Seth Dunn and the John Hardin Bulldogs, it’s better Glasgow than them. Dunn scored the winning run from third base on an error by Glasgow’s catcher, lifting the homestanding Bulldogs to a 4-3 win in both teams’ season openers on Monday. “It’s better than a loss,” John Hardin coach Adam Lindsey said. “It looked like something we might do by giving it away. It was just a costly error they didn’t have to make.” Cody Creamer went 3-for-4 with a run scored and Josh Braden singled twice, stole two bases and scored a run. Creamer picked up the win, allowing three hits, three earned runs and one walk in two innings. He struck out one.
