Osage tops Hallsville
Osage had no trouble adding another win to the season and conference resume Tuesday night with a 12-2 win at Hallsville in five innings.
The host Indians jumped out to a 2-0 lead over Osage in the first inning due to three errors, but the visitors came storming back as eight Osage runs in the third inning broke the game wide open.
Osage collected 12 total hits in the contest with Payton Good, Paige Luttrell, Liberty Gamm and Aly Baker spreading around the offensive firepower with two hits each. On the mound, Skyler Smith got the job done again for the Indians as she allowed three hits while striking out six batters of her own in five innings of work.
Osage (5-4, 3-1 Tri-County) will welcome Eugene to the diamond on Thursday at 5 p.m.
Macks Creek comes up short against Wheatland
The Macks Creek Lady Pirates returned home on Monday night and fell to the Wheatland Lady Mules, 11 - 4.
Wheatland jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first inning and the team’s two runs in the second inning would be enough to seal it as the Lady Pirates plated a run in the first and managed to add just three more runs in the third.
"Defensively we played better tonight," Macks Creek Coach Jason Trusty said. "Offensively we hit it to where they were."
The Lady Pirates were paced by Madeline Phillips. She banged out three singles, a double and scored two runs in her four trips to the plate. Shelby Willis, Mylee Hicks, and Jesse Willis collected the only other hits for Macks Creek- all singles. Shelby scored a run and Hicks collected two RBIs and also reached on a fielder's choice. Hannah Roofener walked and scored while Lexi Mayer reached on an error and a hit-by-pitch.
Bethany Schmidt fell to 1-2 with her five-plus innings of work. She allowed 10 runs, seven earned, on seven hits while striking out three and walking six. Shaylee Skinner relieved and worked the final two frames, allowing one unearned run on one hit to go along with two walks and two strike outs.
Macks Creek falls to 4-4 while Wheatland improves to 4-4. The teams will meet again in the Weaubleau Tournament on Friday night at 5:30. Macks Creek is the four-seed while Wheatland is the five.
