|Mangham looks to rebound as district play begins|
On Thursday, Mangham tangled with the Pineville Rebels and came up short on the scoreboard by the score of 2-0. Alan Williams (7-1) pitched a complete game and struck out 16 batters while giving up only four hits.
With the score tied 0-0 in the top of the seventh, Pineville's leadoff batter reached on a dropped ball on a low throw to first base. The runner advanced to second on an errant pick-off attempt and scored on two passed balls. The next hitter doubled to right center field, stole third and scored on a throwing error.
At the plate, Mangham managed to outhit Pineville 5-4, but could not get the hit when it mattered most. The Dragons left two runners on in the second and fifth and had runners erased by good defensive plays by Pineville. The Dragons got hits from Alan Williams, Tyler Everitt, Jeb Bryan, Todd Duchesne and Billy Johnston.
Mangham falls to OCS Eagles
Mangham (16-5) fell to the OCS Eagles (11-3) in a matchup of two teams looking to make a run at the 1A state tournament. Josh Wilson (3-2) was the pitcher of record and gave up four runs over four innings of work. Wilson gave up three hits, but a three run homerun by Hunter Breed was the big blow of the game for the Eagles. Wilson struck out three hitters and walked three. Jared Dye pitched the final three innings and gave up two runs on two hits.
The Dragons managed six hits against Cody Sisson and Cade Bowen but could not get the big hit at the right time. Alan Williams led off with a ringing double to center field but was thrown out at the plate trying to score on an error in the infield. Josh Wilson led off the second with a single, was bunted to second by Todd Duchesne. Jacob Mooney then singled sharply to left and Wilson was held at third and was stranded there. In the fourth, Todd Duchesne reached on an error and later scored on Jacob Mooney's misplayed fly ball to right field. Billy Johnston then reached on an infield error, but the inning ended with two Dragons on the bases. In the fifth, Jeb Bryan doubled to right center. Tyler Everitt then brought him home with an RBI single making the score 4-2 in favor of OCS. Karl Wiggers' bunt single had two Dragons on with no outs. A sacrifice bunt moved the runners but two strikeouts left the tying runs at second and third. For the second straight game, Mangham did not manage to get the timely hit to win against a quality opponent.
Mangham opens district play this week against Delhi Charter at Mangham at 6:00 Monday. Later in the week Mangham plays Downsville and Forest on the road in Class 1A action.
