Osage knocks off California and Eldon comes up short at Russellville
Osage knocks off California
There was plenty of offense when Osage hosted California Tuesday night.
The Indians found a way to generate the most of it in a 10-5 win over the Pintos. It was a 2-2 game through three innings, but Osage busted the game wide open with six runs in the fourth.
Paige Luttrell had a solid day at the plate, leading the Indians with four of the team’s 13 hits and three RBIs. Meanwhile Aly Baker hit a two-run blast over the fence, Payton Good smacked a 2-RBI double and Kerrigan Gamm also went deep with a solo home run. Reese Good, Payton and Gamm all had multi-hit nights as well.
In the circle, Gamm picked up the win after going all seven innings and allowing five runs on nine hits while striking out nine.
Osage (15-7, 5-1 Tri-County Conference) visits St. Elizabeth on Thursday at 5 p.m.
Late surge dooms Eldon in loss to Russellville
Eldon was on the road Tuesday night in Russellville and the Indians held just a slim 3-2 lead through five innings. Then, four Russellville runs in the sixth proved too tough to overcome in a 7-2 defeat for the Mustangs.
Eldon produced nine total hits as a team and Kayleigh Fike led the charge with three of them while Hailey Clifton finished with two hits and an RBI and Camri Bond added a hit and RBI of her own.
In the circle, Madison VanHooser went all six innings, allowing five earned runs on 10 hits while striking out two and walking one.
After a 1-4 finish at the Hillcrest Tournament over the weekend, Eldon falls to 5-18 overall and remains 2-3 in the Tri-County Conference. Up next is a trip to Boonville on Thursday at 5 p.m.
