AID — The offense took some time to get going. In the meantime, Tanner Mays made sure the Eastern Eagles’ offense didn’t ever get started.

Mays threw a one-hitter as the Symmes Valley Vikings blanked the Eagles 10-0 in six innings on Thursday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

“We came out flat and it took us awhile to get going,” said Vikings’ coach Chad Renfroe. “You have to approach each game the same. Any time you let a team hang around, there’s always a chance something bad can happen.”

Alec Herrell went 4-4 to lead a 12-hit attack. D.J. Miller was 2-3 while Seth Jarrell and Mays were 2-4.

Herrell doubled and Mays singled as the Vikings went up 1-0 in the first.

Miller, Herrell and Jarrell all singled for two runs in the second and Dylan Pelletier had a sacrifice fly for a 4-0 lead.

Jonathan Kouns single, Miller walked and Herrell had a two-run double in the fourth.

Eastham singled home two more runs in the fifth and it was 8-0.

Miller, Herrell, Jarrell and Mays all singled in the sixth to produce two runs and the mercy rule win.
