MORAVIA – The Oxford varsity baseball team finished the regular season at 7-7 and earned a post-season appearance, traveling to Moravia on May 17, losing 3-1.
Oxford would lead over Moravia at 1-0 for nearly the entire game, until Moravia would finally get on the board in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Oxford would see Jon Heggie score their lone run to help them take the early lead in the top of the third inning. Heggie would come home off of a passed ball.
“I kind of knew somewhere in the fourth that the sixth would be a real important inning. I figured they would have their top of the order up most likely, and their top of the order guys came through for them,” said Oxford head coach Chris Palmer.
However, despite Heggie's score the bats for Moravia were connecting with the ball at a slightly higher rate than for Oxford. Oxford would secure two hits in the game while Moravia would have six.
