Eagles' bats come alive in 12-1 rout of Puxico

A day after Oran's offense was all but silenced by Advance, the Eagles exploded for 10 hits and 12 runs in a five-inning victory over the Puxico Indians at home 12-1.

The Eagles were missing three starters, Denver Elfrink (illness), Cole and Todd Priggel (fair) but they never missed a beat.

Oran jumped out with three in the first.  A lead off walk was followed by consecutive one out doubles from Drew Reischman, Clay Sauceda and Ty Johnson.

That would be all the support that freshman Kaden Hargrove, who was making his first varsity start, would need.  Hargrove was perfect through three and a third innings.  He ended up allowing one unearned run on one hit.  He walked three and struck out six.

Meanwhile, the Eagle offense continued to rack up the runs.

They added six in the second, two more in the third and a single tally in the fourth.

Reischman, who swung at the first pitch in each of his three at bats, ended up with two doubles and a single.  He drove in three and scored three times also.

Sauceda was 2-3, with a pair of doubles.  He also had three driven in and three runs scored.  Lane Peterson drove in two, while Peyton McVay and Myles Trankler each had a rbi.

Oran improved to 13-0 with the win and is scheduled to play a tough Cooter Wildcat team today at home at 4:30.  The Wildcats enter the game at 13-1 and could, potentially, be a postseason opponent during the spring season if both teams advance.
