After Lexington and Rosebud- Lott battled for two scoreless innings, the Eagles’ bats awakened in the top of the third inning. The Eagles scored nine runs, as they sent 13 batters to the plate in the pivotal period.

Walt Green started the party, reaching on a Cougar error. Jason Washington followed with a walk and Kogan Garrett singled home Green. Logan Meuth followed with a sacrifice fly to score Washington. W.E. Meuth walked, Chase Hibbeler singled, Kevin Letbetter bunted for a hit, and Tyler Krenek singled to load the bases. Green was hit by a pitch to force home a run. Washington reached on a fielder’s choice as another run scored. Garrett singled home a run and Logan Meuth singled home two runs before the uprising was quelled.

The Eagles loaded the bases in the fourth, but could not get a score across the plate after RL had scored a run in the bottom of the third. The fourth and fifth innings were scoreless as the teams rested for the sixth.

Letbetter walked to start the next scoring barrage. Derek Dane reached, Noble Little walked, and Washington walked, to load the bases after Letbetter scored on a wild pitch. Garrett was hit, to force home a run, Logan Meuth singled home a run, W.E. walked and Hibbeler was hit to force home another run. Letbetter walked, to force home the final run, as the 15 appeared on the scoreboard.

RL got a single run in the bottom of the sixth before the Eagles retired the Cougars for the night due to the “10 run lead after five innings” rule.

Garrett pitched the entire game for his second complete game in two starts and earning a save on Tuesday night.
