Baseball loses two on Saturday

The Oran High School baseball team had two games on Saturday, during the Bank of Grandin Fall Classic. 

In game one, the Eagles dropped a 2-0 decision to Van Buren in Van Buren.

Game two, saw Oran lose to the Winona Bulldogs 11-4, in a contest played in Ellsinore, to finish eighth in the eight-team event.

In the opener, the Eagles gave up two unearned runs in the bottom of the first inning.  No other runs would score.

Ty Johnson went the distance and deserved a better fate.  In taking the loss, he went six innings and allowed only two hits.  He struck out five and did not walk a batter.

Oran managed only one hit, a one-out seventh-inning single by Todd Priggel, as the Eagles dropped to 0-2 on the year.

During the second game, the Eagles scored a tally to start the top of the first.

Quenton Senciboy led off with a walk, went to second on Jacob Shoemaker's sacrifice bunt and scored on Priggel's rbi single to center.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Winona would send 11 to the plate in its half of the first. Seven, only three earned, crossed the plate on four hits, two walks and two errors.

In the second, Oran had a pair of singles, a one-out hit by Carter Heuring and a two-out base hit by Luke Patterson, but both were stranded.

The Bulldogs added a run in its part of the second on a lead-off home run.

Shoemaker hit his second home run of the event during the third inning, a solo shot to center.

Winona all but put the game away in the fourth.  They used two doubles, a single, a sacrifice fly, a walk and an error to push the lead to 11-2.

The Eagles made some noise in the sixth.  With one out, Kole Simms doubled.  That was followed with consecutive singles by Kaden Hargrove, Heuring and Johnson to make the score 11-4.  The rally ended there as did the game due to the time limit imposed.

Simms (0-1) went the first two innings, allowing eight runs, three of which were earned, on five hits.  He walked three and struck out one.

Heuring also went two frames.  He gave up three runs, all earned.  He allowed three hits and walked one.

Senciboy got the final three outs.  He gave up one hit.

Both teams had nine hits, but the Oran defense committed three errors leading to five unearned runs.

Hargrove and Heuring both had two hits for the Eagles who fell to 0-3 after the loss.
