Flyers lose to Oak Hill

The Oak Hill Oaks beat the St. Joseph Flyers 17-4 Thursday.

The Flyers had seven hits as Payton Blair went 3-4 with a run batted in and Tanner Riley was 2-3.

“We did hit the ball a little better,” said Flyers’ coach Greg Bryant.

“The game wasn’t really as bad as the score says. We were down 6-3 and had the based loaded twice and hit into double plays. They had three home runs but two of them just barely cleared the short fence in left and they got six in the last inning.”

The Flyers (11-3) host Maysville (Ky.) St. Patrick at 11 a.m. Saturday.
