Eagles split in Vardaman
Saturday was a beautiful day for baseball and the Hebron Eagles took advantage of it with a win over the hosting Rams in Vardaman.
The Rams held a round-robin series with Calhoun City and Hebron, falling to the Wildcats, 0-7, in the first game.
City and Hebron tied, 6-6, in the second game of the day with Payton Griffin on the mound for the Eagles. The Wildcats jumped out to a 6-1 lead through the top of the second inning, but the Eagles just kept chipping away at the deficit, scoring two runs in the third and three in the fifth. The Hebron defense stalled the Wildcats and prevented any additional scoring.
The final game of the day pitted the Rams against the Eagles with Hunter Spencer on the mound for Vardaman. Hebron’s Collin Moore scored the first run as he reached on a HBP, stole second and third and crossed the plate on Clay Faulkner’s ground out.
Brandon England singled and stole second. He made it to third on Channing Tapley’s fly out and Drew Myatt’s single to centerfield sent him home, putting the Eagles up 2-0.
The Rams gained some ground in the bottom of the frame as Chase Owens singled then stole second on Brandon Washington’s at-bat. Washington reached on a walk and both he and Owens advanced a base on Ty Long’s at-bat. Long’s groundout sent Owens across the plate and the Rams closed the gap to 2-1.
But that was as close as they got. The Eagles took control at the plate and in the field, outscoring Vardaman 7-1 for the win.
Back in play
The Rams were scheduled to be back on the diamond Tuesday hosting Hamilton and will head to Ethel Saturday.
The Eagles were scheduled to host Victory Christian Monday and head to Central Academy Tuesday. They will wrap up their week in Pheba Friday hosting Kemper Academy.
