Owls sweep, shut out Eagles


TWINING — Oscoda's pitching shut out Arenac Eastern in both ends of Monday's double header as the Owls flew past the Eagles 10-0 and 17-0. The games were Oscoda's first of the season.

Parker Thompson tossed a five-inning two-hitter in the opener, striking out eight. Thompson added two hits, including a double, and four RBIs, while Karl Wimmer, Thomas York and Tyler Little each had doubles.

Sean Norton started and took the loss for AE, allowing eight runs (four earned) and striking out five. J.R. Ellsworth had two hits for the Eagles.

"Our pitching and defense improved from Thursday's games," said AE coach Mike Sanchez. "However, we're still walking too many batters and throwing too many pitchers per inning. I would like our guys to have a couple innings with 20 or less pitches thrown."

Chuck Dumaresq and Bryce Haglund combined to throw a three-inning no-hitter in the second game, which the Owls ended with a nine-run third inning.

"I think the weather had a big effect," Sanchez said. "Though we got mercied twice, we hung in there the first game. The second game I think the kids just wanted the doubleheader to be over. The conditions were hard to take with the cold and wind…we played a bunch of our freshmen and first-year players and let them get their feet wet in some game situations."

Tyler Little and Karl Wimmer each had triples, Bryce Haglund had a double and Little, Wimmer and Brett Leech each scored three times.

Oscoda (2-0) is at AuGres-Sims on Thursday, April 16, while Arenac Eastern is at Alcona.
