Flyers roll past Tartans in SOC
Young or old, the St. Joseph Flyers just kept scoring.
Playing a lot of younger players for more than half the game, the Flyers beat the Sciotoville East Tartans 13-3 in a 5-inning Southern Ohio Conference game on Tuesday.
“We got a chance to play our younger kids and get a conference win, so I was happy about that,” said Flyers’ coach Greg Bryant.
The Flyers went up 7-0 in the first inning.
Jimmy Mahlmeister was hit by a pitch, Jackson Rowe walked and Blake Stuntebeck hit a 2-run double. J.C. Damron walked and Michael Mahlmeister doubled home both runners.
Mahlmeister moved up on a passed ball, Elijah Rowe walked and stole second and Drew Brown had a 2-run single. Brady Medinger singled and the runners pulled off a double steal. Brown scored on a balk.
St. Joseph (5-1, 3-0) to 2 runs in the second when Damron was hit by a pitch, Michael Mahlmeister, Elijah Rowe and Brown all walked for a run and a balk scored Mahlmeister.
Bryant began to empty his bench in the third as East got a pair of runs but the Flyers answered with 3 in the bottom of the inning.
Matt Sheridan singled, Darryn Harvey was hit by a pitch and Darmon had an RBI double. Elijah Rowe followed with a 2-run double and it was 12-2.
The Flyers added a run in the fourth when Medinger walked, moved up on a Matthew Heighton’s ground out and Sheridan had an RBI single.
