After falling behind 3-2 after three innings, Grain Valley unleashed its bats Friday.
The Eagles scored 15 unanswered runs to rout host Oak Grove 17-3 in a Missouri River Valley Conference West matchup at Webb Park.
Grain Valley scored five runs in the fourth to grab a 7-3 lead and added two in the sixth and eight in the seventh to pull away.
Garrett Morrow went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and four RBIs, and Cade Matlon went 3-for-4 with a two-run blast to power the Eagles, who improved to 7-5 overall and 2-1 in the conference.
Mickey Simpson was 3-for-5 with three doubles and Tate Collum, Crichton Hill, Trent Flake and Josh Kilpatrick each added two hits in supporting of winning pitcher Jacob Misiorowski (2-0).
Justin Barnum suffered the loss for Oak Grove.
TRUMAN 5, NORTH KANSAS CITY 4: Tanner Blau worked around a two-out error in the seventh inning to preserve a Suburban Big Six home win over North Kansas City Friday.
Nick Wheeler slugged his second home run of the season to help the Patriots grab a 4-1 lead after three innings.
Kyler Barnett allowed four hits, two runs and four walks and struck out five in six innings for the win. He also went 3-for-3 with a double and two RBIs at the plate.
“We were able to put a complete game together and get a win to close out the week,” Truman coach Corey Lathrom said. “Kyler Barnett threw the ball well, mixing up his pitches to keep the batters off-balance, and we were able to play solid defense behind him. Randy Montero made two nice plays in the field to keep us in the ballgame. Hopefully this win gets us some confidence that we need heading into the Eastern Jackson County Tournament next week.”
Jordan McKinney, Josh Patrick and Nate Camby each added a hit and a run for the Patriots (2-9-1, 1-4 Big Six), who scored a run in the sixth for a 5-2 lead before Blau earned the save after two unearned runs in the seventh.
BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 11, PLATTE COUNTY 5: Blue Springs South overcame an early 3-1 deficit with five runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings in a non-conference Senior Night win Friday.
Will Heller went 3-for-3 with four RBIs and three runs and Quinton Weld and Derek Mammen each hit home runs to power the Jaguar attack and support winning pitcher Hunter Nyquist.
"It's been a long week of baseball and our guys found a way to win a game,” Jaguars coach Ben Baier said. “We were not real sharp early and that has to be on me. I will take responsibility for that. I felt that Hunter did a great job tonight. He was asked to do something a little out of his normal role for us this evening and he battled, like we knew he would.”
Grant Geren, Avery Masoner and Dustin Brewer finished off the win with an inning each.
Mammen was 2-for-4, Weld was 1-for-2 with three RBIs and Cale Sackewitz added two hits and two runs for South (7-1).
