EDDYVILLE — The South Central Conference baseball doubleheader between Davis County and Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont featured two games as different as night and day.
EBF scored 10 runs in the first three innings of game one, coasting to a 10-1 win. In the nightcap, Davis County scored four runs in the opening inning and led throughout the 7-1 victory. The Wednesday night doubleheader was played in Eddyville because of wet grounds in Bloomfield.
The Rockets took a 1-0 lead in their first at-bat. Sophomore clean-up hitter, Treg Van Dorin, delivered a sacrifice fly to center to score the run.
EBF added three second-inning runs. Two of the runs were unearned as the Mustangs committed two errors.
Tanner Allen and Jackson Voyles had back-to-back RBI singles. Voyles would have three game-one hits.
The final run scored when Trevor Swartz grounded into a 6-3 double play. Swartz, the EBF starting pitcher, was in control from the start.
Davis County finally got its first hit in the top of the third, but failed to score. Swartz would scatter six Mustang hits and had six strikeouts in the complete-game outing.
"My first goal is always for us to get the win. Secondly, I like to go the distance with a good pitch count," said Swartz. "I was throwing my change-up for strikes to keep them off balance.”
EBF put the game away in the home half of the inning. The Rockets scored six runs, on five hits, and two Mustang errors.
Jevin Jensen led off with single. After Cory Archer reached base behind him, Jensen would score all the way from second on a wild pitch.
Archer would score the second run on a wild pitch. Voyles added his second hit, Van Dorin had a hit for his second RBI and KJ McCrea singled to score a run. Before the inning was over, Jensen picked up his second hit in the third.
