Osage comes up short at Waynesville, Eldon drops pair of games in doubleheader and Climax Springs falls to Halfway
Osage comes up short at Waynesville
School of the Osage went to Waynesville Friday night with some momentum after a walkoff win over Eugene the night before. Unfortunately for the Indians, the momentum did not last in a 7-6 loss to the Tigers.
With the game tied at 6-6 in the bottom of the sixth inning a Waynesville RBI single proved to be the difference. After trailing 5-2, Osage initially poured on four runs in the same inning to regain the lead.
Dalton Depeé, Trey Rassenfoss, Andrew Bryant and Michael Lasater provided the Indians with some offense as Rassenfoss had two hits and an RBI while Traygen Whittle, Aaron Hancock and Dalton Stoecklein all collected an RBI.
Braden McLaughlin got the start on the mound and the pitcher allowed seven hits and five runs in 4 2/3 innings of work, striking out three and walking one. James Hutchcraft worked the rest, allowing two runs, three hits and three walks while striking out one in 1 1/3 innings.
Osage (1-2) hosts Hallsville in the Tri-County Conference opener Tuesday at 5 p.m.
Eldon drops pair of games to California and Mexico
Eldon visited California on Saturday for doubleheader action against the Pintos and Mexico and the Mustangs came home empty-handed falling to the former opponent 8-5 and the latter 14-6.
California set the tone early in the first game jumping out to a 7-2 lead after the first inning and Eldon could not quite recover, despite outhitting the Pintos with seven hits to five.
Jason Holland and Braydy Hill led the way with two hits each while Fisher Snelling drove in a team-leading two RBIs. Charlie Mays and Landon Wall also drove in a run each. Mays was on the mound and took the loss after five innings of work where he allowed seven runs, two earned, on five hits and seven walks while striking out six. Eldon was also plagued by four errors.
Eldon also had a few offensive sparks in the second game with the Bulldogs with nine hits as a team, but Mexico was a little more consistent with 14 runs on 14 hits. Once again, errors were not in favor of the Mustangs as they committed seven.
Holland and Hill continued to provide the bats as they added two hits each while Holland, Corbin Harrison, Mays, Moore and Zach Graham all had an RBI each. Snelling was the starting pitcher and he took the loss after four innings of work where he allowed nine hits and nine runs, three earned, while walking three and striking out two. Caleb Wood did the rest with two innings of work giving up five runs on five hits while walking and striking out a batter each.
Eldon (1-5) hosts Fulton on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
