Eldon takes down Versailles and Osage hit with tough loss at Southern Boone
Eldon takes down Versailles
Eldon found its bats Monday night.
The Mustangs hosted Highway 52 neighbor Versailles in Tri-County Conference action and after a scoreless gridlock through four innings, Eldon piled on five runs in the fifth en route to a 9-1 win over the Tigers.
The Mustangs, who were originally scheduled to be on the road, had the privilege of playing at home due to poor field conditions in Versailles and did not disappoint with 10 total hits as a team. The bats were led by Fisher Snelling, Austin Pipes and Charlie Mays who all posted two hits each while Corbin Harrison, Dawson Brandt, Tate Warny and Braydy Hill all recorded a hit as well. Harrison and Mays finished with two RBIs each while Brandt and Warny also drove in runs.
Brandt also helped his team’s cause on the mound as the pitcher tossed a one-hitter, allowing just a single run while walking three and striking out nine in a complete game performance.
Versailles’ Kayden McGinnis picked up the lone hit for the Tigers and he was on the mound as well as the pitcher allowed four earned runs while walking one and striking out three in five innings of work. Dobbins came in relief and gave up two earned runs on four hits to finish the night out.
Eldon (3-8, 3-2 Tri-County Conference) was scheduled to be in Warsaw on Tuesday and the Mustangs will visit Helias on Thursday. Versailles (1-13, 0-7 Tri-County Conference) was slated to visit Eugene on Tuesday and will take on St. Elizabeth and Jamestown on Saturday in doubleheader action at St. Elizabeth.
Osage hit with tough loss at Southern Boone
Osage welcomed Southern Boone to the diamond Monday night and the Eagles did not forget to bring their bats in a 13-1 win over the Indians in five innings.
Southern Boone knocked in eight runs in the first inning and never looked back.
Drake Gaines was on the mound for Osage and the pitcher worked one-third of an inning, allowing five hits while walking four. Michael Lasater worked the rest of the night and gave up five runs on 10 hits while walking one and striking out two. Offensively, Dalton Depeé provided a spark for the Indians with a home run.
Osage (5-10, 1-4 Tri-County Conference) will visit Buffalo on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
