Lufkin JV Team Too Much For Sophomores

The Oak Ridge sophomore baseball team took on the JV team from Lufkin after a scheduling mistake. This would be a learning experience for the young War Eagles. The War Eagles took this one on the chin loosing 11-1.

The Sophomores were able to hang with the Lufkin JV Team for four and two thirds innings, the score was 3-0. Tyler Miller got the start on the hill for the War Eagles, Miller proved he could hold his own against the older team. He pitched four and two thirds innings giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits, while striking out four Panthers.

With two outs and runners on first and second in the top of the fifth inning, the wheels came off the once close game, the War Eagles committed three costly errors allowing four more runs to cross the plate, putting an end to any thought of a War Eagle come back.

The Lufkin pitcher was too much for the young War Eagles, he had a nasty curve ball that he threw every other pitch it seemed like and War Eagle batters just couldn’t lay off it.

There were a few bright spots for the War Eagles, Derek Davis, Tanner Doyel and Jacob Norton collected hits, War Eagle back stop Alex Walker threw out a would be base stealer and Peydon Vasquez had an outfield assist, throwing out a base runner trying to score from second.

In all this was good experience for the Sophomore War Eagles, maybe it will help prepare them for the rest of the district schedule.

Next up for the Sophomores: Rudder @ Oak Ridge, Saturday at 12:00. Hope to see you there.
