Salmon River Rides Big Innings Past OFA In Opener

BY DAVE SHEA

Capitalizing on opportunities for big innings Salmon River scored four runs in the first, third and seventh innings and secured a 12-5 win over OFA on Monday in the opening day of the NAC Central Baseball season.

"We knew it was going to be a learning experience. We really only had five days with our team together to prepare for this game. We had too many walks and and made too many errors," said OFA Coach Larry Mehaffy.

"But we did get the bat on the ball pretty good but Salmon River made the plays and you have to credit them. And their pitchers did a good job especially with their curveballs."

Starter Connor Lewis and Caiden Cartier combined for eight strikeouts in a six-hitter and both came through with RBI singles. Donovan Lauzon singled twice and Luke Miller, Zach Durant and Rich Chatlan all added singles.

Kaleb Spears crushed a long double to the fence in right field and Corbin Durham singled and scored twice for OFA. Mitchel McCarthy, Derek Barr, Ryan Mitchell and Brock Compo all added singles. Spears, Aaron Ellis and Ryan Mitchell all saw action on the mound.
