The Meigs baseball team is back on the winning track as the Marauders defeated Jackson 8-6 on Saturday in the Apple City and then topped Athens 7-0 in a Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division matchup in Rocksprings.
On Saturday the Marauders scored eight runs over the first three frames and held off the Ironmen off to take the two run victory.
Freshman Luke Musser earned the pitching victory after allowing just four runs on four hits and three walks, while striking out four in four innings. Kaileb Sheets allowed two runs on three hits in two innings of work, while Cameron Mattox earned the save, allowing just two hits in the seventh inning.
The Maroon and Gold offense was led by senior Taylor Rowe with three hits, three runs batted in and two scores. Michael Davis had two hits with three runs scored and an RBI, while Ty Phelps marked a two runs batted in on one hit. Chase Whitlatch had a runs scored and an RBI, Mattox had a hit and a run scored, while Bradley Helton scored once and Musser drove in a run.
In Monday’s game it seemed run support was all that was needed as Camron Mattox tossed a gem to lead Meigs to victory over the visiting Bulldogs.
The Marauder offense provided that run support right out of the gate with six runs in the opening inning, while scoring one more in the third and cruising to a 7-0 win.
Mattox threw six shutout innings and allowed just five hits, while striking out three and walking none. Whitlatch threw one perfect inning in relief and struck out two.
Rowe again led the Maroon and Gold at the plate, marking two hits, an RBI and a run scored, while Helton had two hits and crossed the plate once. Sheets had two hits and two runs batted in, Phelps had one hit, one RBI and two runs scored, while Bartrum added one hit, one RBI and one run scored. Whitlatch and Davis both scored, while Musser finished with one RBI.
The Marauders are now 6-1 on the year and 2-1 in the TVC Ohio. Meigs will look to sweep Athens on April 28 in The Plains, while the rematch with Jackson will be on May 8 at the University of Rio Grande.
