Unatego 3, Oxford 0
OTEGO – Unatego’s pitching staff combined for 12 strikeouts in a shutout victory over Oxford Tuesday.
Jake Earl hit a pinch-hit double in his team’s final at-bat for the only run needed in the game. Chet Davis added an RBI single during the three-run sixth.
“Both teams got good, solid pitching tonight, and I think the hitting for both teams is behind the pitching at this point,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer.
Unatego starter Tyler Newman struck out 10 in five scoreless innings, while Oxford starter P.J. Hubman logged five scoreless innings giving up just one hit. “We didn’t have a hard-hit ball all game, and we just weren’t able to get a timely hit in the game,” Palmer said.
Oxford is at Delhi today.

Hancock 5, Greene 4
HANCOCK – Hancock rallied with two runs in the final two innings to defeat Greene Tuesday afternoon.
Derek Keesler’s two-run homer in the sixth drew the Wildcats to within 4-3. Cody Satkowski’s double in the seventh preceded two Greene errors leading to the winning runs.
“We made some outstanding defensive plays early in the game, and Nic (Puglisi) pitched great with nine strikeouts,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “If not for a couple unfortunate breaks, he would have gotten the win.”
Puglisi went 2-for-2 with three RBI at the plate, Dan Carlin had two hits, and Nate Whittaker added an RBI double.
