JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.  — The Princeton WhistlePigs flirted with a shutout victory over the Johnson City Doughboys at TVA Credit Union Ballpark on Saturday night, but ultimately settled for merely the 8-1 victory.

WhistlePigs closer Eli Wright took the hill in the bottom of the ninth frame, retiring the side to close the door on Johnson City for good.

Dylan Rogers went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs to lead the WhistlePigs. Braeden Hinton had a hit and two RBIs. Trevor Bailey went 2-for-4, Tre Morris tripled and Brady Day doubled.

Princeton pitchers Kenny Dollenger and John Micolaicyk combined for seven shutout innings. Dollenger struck out three and walked one. Micolaicyk gave up Princeton’s lone run in the eighth frame.  He struck out five and walked none.
