EBF cut the lead to 4-1 in the third as Swartz drove in Tanner Allen, who had led off the inning with a single. That was it for the Rockets as Mustang pitcher Jacob Jones would limit them to just one hit over the final four innings.
In his complete game effort, Jones used a number of curve balls to limit the Rockets to four hits while striking out seven.
“I always want to go as far as I can. My curve ball was working and they were swinging at it," said Jones. "Our guys were making plays, so I just had to throw strikes.”
The Mustangs, who committed five errors in the opener, played errorless ball in game two.
“For the most part we have been good defensively,” said Davis County head coach Todd White. "I think that fact, a pitcher throwing strikes, and the fact that nobody likes to lose by nine, were the things that helped us win game two.”
Davis County scored two runs in the sixth to go up 6-1. Jones helped his own cause with an RBI double and Mack Chilton singled to drive in the other run.
The Mustangs' final run came in the seventh. Hopkins opened with a high and deep drive to left that hit part way up on the fence for a double.
“I thought it was going out,” said Hopkins, who would score later in the inning on a wild pitch.
EBF had three base runners in the seventh but failed to score.
“I thought our pitching was pretty good,” said Ashman. “Our defense put us in a hole early in game two and we couldn't play our way out.”
The 7-1 win moves Davis County to 3-3 overall and 1-1 in the SCC. The Mustangs will travel to Centerville for another SCC doubleheader at Pat Daugherty Field while the Rockets (2-4, 1-1) host Clarke tonight.
