WEBSTER - The Oxford Pirates banged out 15 hits and took advantage of some costly errors by the Bartlett Indians and went on to cruise to a 10-1 victory last Thursday (April 12) at the Bartlett High School field.
Pirates’ senior Tyler Bostek led the top of the second inning off with a single and later scored on a wild pitch to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.
The Pirates rallied for four more runs in the top of the third inning as Cody Stone, Nick Bruzios, and Nick Lemay all had base hits topped with a couple of crucial errors by the Indians.
Bruzios drove in Nick Bates who singled with another run in the top of the fourth, giving the Pirates a 6-0 lead.
Tyler Mandeville drove in the Indians’ only run with an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth, scoring Luis Caro, making it 6-1.
The Pirates broke the game open and knocked out Indians’ starter sophomore Evan Anderson in the fifth inning, scoring four more times. Lefty Brandon Cummings finished the game on the mound for the Indians.
Stone led the Pirates with three hits while Bates added two more. Mandeville and Luis Caro each had a pair of hits for the Indians, who suffered their first loss of the season.
Dennis Sneade pitched four strong innings for the Pirates and both Stone and Nick Cardoni pitched well in relief.
