Oxford 11, B-G 6
OXFORD – Coming off back-to-back lopsided losses, Oxford finished out the week on the upswing beating Bainbridge-Guilford on Friday.
Locked in a 1-1 tie, Oxford scored six in the third inning. Andrew Golden’s sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run, four runs scored on passed balls or errors, and Krys Escobar added an RBI single.
“We put the ball in play, and they got a little wild in the third,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “It was nice to be on the other side of that.”
Jamie Smolcnop hit a two-run homer in the fourth for Oxford to support Golden, who won his first varsity game. Golden allowed one earned run in six innings striking out seven and allowing two hits.
Kyle Ferrington had two hits and three stolen bases in the win, and Escobar was 2-for-3 with two runs scored.
Cody Lake led B-G with three hits, and Billy Holden had a two-run double in the seventh.
