ORAN -- Oran stretched its win streak to four with a 12-3 win over Saxony Lutheran on Friday.

Austin Dumey hurled four innings to pick up the win. He allowed three runs, two unearned, on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks.

Paul Bucher, in relief of Dumey, earned the save, shutting down Saxony with two on and no outs in the fifth inning with Oran leading 6-3.
