Osage has tough offensive night against Hallsville and Versailles drops pair of games in doubleheader at Russellville

Osage finds offensive woes against Hallsville

Figuring out the opposing pitcher proved to be a tough task for Osage Friday night.

The Indians were in Tri-County Conference action at Hallsville and could only muster a single hit in a 6-0 shutout defeat at the hands of the host Indians.

Osage’s Traygen Whittle picked up the lone hit as the team was plagued with six strikeouts in the five innings that were played.

Dalton Depeé got the start for Osage on the mound and the pitcher surrendered five runs on three hits in one and one-third innings of work. Michael Lasater finished things up on the hill, working the final two and two-thirds innings.

Osage falls to 4-7 with the loss and 1-3 in the Tri-County Conference. The Indians were scheduled to host Russellville Monday night and will play host to Crocker on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

Versailles comes up short in doubleheader at Russellville

It was a tough weekend for Versailles as the Tigers came up empty in doubleheader action at Russellville on Saturday.

Versailles lost to the hosts 9-2 and ended the weekend with a 7-2 defeat at the hands of Harrisburg.

The bats were alive in the former contest as the team collected eight total hits. However, only two runs were produced with RBIs from the bats of Brayden Morrison and Kaden McGinnis. Taylor Dobbins, Kooper Wilson and McGinnis all collected two hits and Wyatt Espinosa also put up a hit along with Morrison.

On the mound, Kade Marriott worked the first four and two-thirds innings allowing five earned runs on eight hits, one walk and two strikeouts. McGinnis worked the rest of the way, allowing four earned runs on four hits with two strikeouts and a walk as well.

Just like the first contest, Versailles generated some offense against Harrisburg with seven hits, but runs were hard to come by as Dobbins and McGinnis had the only two RBIs. Dobbins led the way with two hits while Espinosa, Andy Clemens, Marriott, Wilson and McGinnis all added a hit.

The Tigers used a trio of pitchers in Clemens, Morrion and Colbey Boicourt and they combined to allow four earned runs on seven hits while walking five batters and striking out nine.

Versailles (1-9, 0-4 Tri-County Conference) was scheduled to visit Southern Boone on Monday and host Skyline on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
