  • The Fort Osage baseball team concluded its championship Suburban Middle Seven baseball season in high style.
    The Indians pounded out 14 hits on the way to an 8-3 victory over William Chrisman Thursday at Crysler Stadium.
    “I was glad to get the game in before districts,” Fort Osage coach Chris Walker said. ”It was a good conference win."
    Starter Chad Sutton, Hayden Baumgartner and Alex Merithew combined to strike out nine and allow six hits as Sutton earned the victory for the Indians, who finished 11-1 in the conference and improved to 13-5 overall heading into Saturday’s district tournament.
    Baumgartner slugged a two-run homer in the sixth and Darby Raines and Luke Crabb each went 2-for-3 with with two RBIs to power Fort Osage’s offense. Merithew, Trent Thompson, Ryan Toliver and Trevor Jefferies each added two hits and Merithew scored two runs.
    The Indians, who also capitalized on four Chrisman errors to score five unearned runs, never trailed after scoring four runs in the top of the second.
    Taylor Cox went 2-for-3 and David Mooney had a hit and two RBIs to lead Chrisman, which fell to 4-16 overall and 2-9 in the Middle Seven.
    OAK GROVE 10, ODESSA 6: Wednesday’s victory assured Oak Grove of at least a share of its first conference title since 2005.
    Conner Matson scattered six hits, struck out nine and allowed six unearned runs in a complete game victory. It was his sixth win of the season.
    “This was not the prettiest of games for either side as both teams committed four defensive miscues each, “Oak Grove coach Kirk Sears said. “This was a very good senior night for our six seniors. These guys deserve that (conference co-title) as they have put so much of their lives into the game of baseball as they have grown up.”
    Dakota Hearn slugged a three-run homer and Corey Bolin had two hits and two RBIs to lead the Panthers (17-6, 7-2).
    The Oak Grove junior varsity improved to 12-0 with a 26-0 victory.
