Eagles deal Cards 5 inning loss

The Oran High School baseball team jumped out to a 13-0 lead after 2 1/2 innings at Woodland on Monday and cruised to a 14-4 win in the mercy-rule shortened contest.

The Eagles scored two in the first on a Layne Johnson double, singles by Cole Priggel and Clay Sauceda, plus a wild pitch. 

Three scored in the second.  The big blow coming on Sauceda's two-rbi double.

The biggest frame was the third when Oran sent 11 to the plate and scored eight.  Denver Elfrink led off with a double and when he batted again that inning, he hit his first high school home run

Todd Priggel got his first start of the year and faced the minimum through the first two innings, but shoddy infield defense led to 3 unearned runs in the third as three errors combined with a double got the Cardinals on the board.

Oran got one of those runs back in the fourth when Jacob Shoemaker walked and after a wild pitch and an error came home on Cole Priggel's two-out groundout.

Woodland benefited in their half from another Eagle miscue.  Denver Elfrink, who had come on in relief of Todd Priggel, gave up a leadoff single.  That was followed by two strikeouts, before a hit batter and a walk forced in a run.

He was able to work around a two-out error in the fifth to secure the team's win in five.

Todd Priggel (1-0) went 3 innings.  He allowed only 1 hit and gave up 3 unearned runs.  he walked 2 and struck out 2.  Elfrink went 2 innings gave up a hit and 1 unearned run.  He walked 1 and struck out 2 also.

Sauceda drove in 3 on 2 hits.  Todd Priggel and Elfrink had 2 rbi each on 2 hits.  Likewise, Cole Priggel knocked in 2 and Austin Eftink had a pair of hits as Oran improved to 6-1.
