Baseball loses a wet one in Advance

Yesterday, the Oran High School baseball team lost 4-3, in a game that started a little late and ended a little early because of rain.

After about a twenty minute delay in starting the game to get the field ready, the Eagles jumped on top 3-0 in the first.

Jacob Shoemaker led off with a walk, went to second on a passed ball and scored on Todd Priggel's one-out single.  Priggel went to second on a groundout and scored on Kaden Hargrove's two-out single after Carter Heuring had picked up a base on balls.  Heuring ended up at third.  Dane Shands was inserted as a courtesy runner for Hargrove.  Shands intentionally got in a rundown between first and second, allowing Heuring to score.

Hargrove, who got the start on the mound, retired the first seven batters he faced, but in the third the Hornets sent nine to the plate, scoring three unearned runs on three errors, two walks and a single, tying the game.

Advance took the lead in the fourth, a one-out single was followed by a hit batsman and a walk to load the bases.  Quenton Senciboy took over in relief and the go-ahead run scored on a passed ball.  He retired the next two.

In the top of the sixth, Senciboy singled with one out and advanced on a wild pitch.  That was when the game ended as a downpour ensued.

Hargrove (0-2) took the loss, going three and one-third innings.  He gave up two hits, four runs (none earned), walked four and struck out two.  Senciboy went the final inning and two-thirds.  He allowed no runs, no hits.  He struck out one and walked one.

Senciboy also had two of the Eagles five hits.

Oran is scheduled to be back in action on Saturday at Chaffee. They will face Woodland at 11 am and have a rematch with South Pemiscot at 1 pm.
