Oran rolls over Bloomfield; Risco falls

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

BLOOMFIELD -- The Oran Eagles cruised to a 16-4 win over Bloomfield in their first game of the season on Tuesday afternoon.

After scoring one in the top of the first, the Eagles watched Bloomfield tag Dalton Elfrink with four runs in the bottom of the first. That lead would be short-lived, however, as Oran plated five runs in the second and third and five more in the fifth to win by the mercy rule.

After a slow start, Elfrink shut down the Wildcats, allowing only two hits and three earned runs while striking out six and walking two.

Kody Moore and Nolan Urhahn both homered for Oran (1-0), each finishing the day 2 for 4. Elfrink led the Eagles at the plate with a 3 for 3 performance, including a double.

Saxony Lutheran 11, Risco 3

JACKSON -- The Risco Tigers fell to 0-2 on the season with an 11-3 loss to Saxony Lutheran on Tuesday.

Risco plated a run in the top of the first to take the early lead, but the Crusaders scored one in the first followed by three in the second and third. Risco cut the lead to 7-3 in the top of the fifth but Saxony added four runs in the bottom of the frame to seal the game.

"We haven't practiced a lot," said Risco coach Brandon Blankenship. "We kicked the ball around quite a bit. We had too many errors

"We did hit the ball a little better than last game but we hit into three double plays."

Jordan Pavy finished 2 for 4 for Risco while Caleb McCord was 2 for 3.

The Tigers will travel to North Pemiscot on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
