Camdenton pounces Lebanon
Camdenton had some work to do Thursday night. The Lakers got the job done and then some.
Camdenton found itself trailing Lebanon 3-0 early and after cutting the gap to a single run by the third inning, 11 runs in the fifth erased all doubts in a 13-3 win over the Yellowjackets.
The bat of Drake Miller provided the Lakers plenty of offense as he posted four RBIs on two hits. Brandon Pasley Riley Stidham also got in the groove as the former Laker racked up three hits and RBIs and the latter drove in three runs on one hit. Camdenton finished the night with 10 hits overall.
Garrett Stamper got the call on the hill and the pitcher picked up a win for the Lakers after five innings of work where he allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and two strikeouts.
Camdenton (6-5, 3-2 Ozark Conference) visits Russellville on Friday at 5 p.m.

Macks Creek's Trever Smith, Carsen Strutz and Grant English had three hits each to keep the line moving for the Pirates and Smith and English both had three RBIs each with English being a home run short of the cycle.
