HOLTVILLE — The very first round of 2020 Imperial Valley League baseball action went to the Calexico Bulldogs on Friday, as they defeated the Holtville Vikings, 5-4.

Though Calexico’s margin of victory ultimately was as thin as they come, the Bulldogs actually controlled the game for 6 1/2 of the game’s seven innings. Only in their last gasp did the Vikings manage to put a scare into them.
