Tyler Murphy’s three-run home run highlighted a seven-run fourth, and Fort Osage scored a run in the sixth to cap Monday’s 11-1 Suburban Middle Seven win at Oak Park.
Jamison Raines scattered seven hits and three walks against seven strikeouts in five innings to get the win. Andru Baxley (home run) and Cody Oliphant (double, 2 RBIs) each batted 3 for 3 as the Indians slapped 15 hits while improving to 4-3 overall and 2-0 in league play. Aron Greer had three stolen bases and two RBIs, and Murphy finished with four RBIs.
“Jamison pitched a great game,” Fort Osage coach Chris Walker said. “Cody Oliphant and Andru Baxley are both seeing the ball real well. Defense played good today considering the conditions.”
WILLIAM CHRISMAN 4, RAYTOWN SOUTH 2: Winning pitcher Will Fisher aided his own cause greatly with three hits and two runs in Monday’s non-league win at Crysler Stadium.
Tyler Callahan (RBI) and Eli Henderson (2 runs) added two hits apiece for the Bears, who improved to 2-5.
On Saturday the Bears dropped both ends of a doubleheader at Winnetonka, falling 3-2 and 12-6.
“Good to get a win,” Chrisman coach J.R. Wells said. “We threw strikes for the most part, but we have to clean it up defensively and need some more key hits when we get guys on base.”
Chrisman led 2-0 in the first game until Winnetonka homered twice off starting pitcher Parker LaRoche, then scored the winning run off Gannon Ogle thanks to an error. LaRoche (2 RBIs) and Callahan (double) had two hits apiece.
Ogle suffered the loss in the second game. He had two hits, including a two-run homer in the first. Winnetonka score four runs in the third, three in the fifth and five in the sixth.
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 5, BLUE SPRINGS 3: Andrei Kleiboeker clubbed a three-run homer in the third to give the visiting Broncos a 4-0 lead, and Maison Stites added a solo homer in the seventh in North’s Suburban Big Six win Monday.
Trey Ziebenbien suffered the loss for Blue Springs (3-6, 0-1), which scored all three of its runs in the sixth inning. Dyllon Williams slapped three singles.
Nate Webb got the win for North.
“Trey pitched a great game – made just one mistake,” Blue Springs coach Tim McElligott said. “We left 4 guys on base. That is too many against a good pitcher like Nate Webb. We need to execute when we get the chance.
“We are doing some good things; we just need to put a complete game together.”
On Saturday, Blue Springs dropped both ends of a doubleheader at Liberty, 8-7 and 18-8.
