The come-from-behind victory in Colorado Springs was welcome after the Bulldogs lost the series opener Friday 14-5.
Tied 8-8 heading into the final inning, Bins, a catcher out of Fairfield’s Rodriguez High, put the Bulldogs in front with his first career home run. Korby Batesole added extra security, reaching on a single and later scoring on a two-out balk.
The Bulldogs (10-7, 3-2) erased deficits of five and three runs with 16 total hits and a solid close from right-hander Edgar Gonzalez, who threw two shutout innings (two walks, two strikeouts) in relief to earn the win.
