Lone Grove overpowers Davis in district games

Davis hurler, Jackson Bonner pitched 3-2/3 innings for the Wolves against Lone Grove on April 13. He gave up just one earned run on two hits, but his team fell, 9-0.

Between the Longhorns and the rain, the Davis baseball team didn’t get to have a lot of fun last week. The only games the Wolves got in were two district losses to Lone Grove.
Lone Grove 17, Davis 0
After a scoreless first inning, Lone Grove took control with five runs in the top of the second at Davis on April 12. Then, the visitors erupted for 11 more in the third to put the game well out of reach. The Longhorns hit three homeruns in the game, while Davis managed just one hit in the contest.
Lone Grove 9, Davis 0
The Longhorns remained undefeated on the season with its 27th win of the year on April 13 at Lone Grove.
Davis stayed in the ballgame until the fifth inning and actually matched the Longhorns hit total for the game on Tuesday. Of the five Longhorn hits, though, three were doubles. That included the bookends of a five-run rally in the fifth inning that put the game away.
Davis actually loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning, but came up empty and never scored the rest of the day. The Wolves got a runner on base in every inning but the seventh, but 13 strikeouts kept them from moving runners around the bases.
Isaiha Ortiz and Jackson Bonner split the pitching duties. Of the nine runs they surrendered in the game, only one was earned on a tough day in the field for the Wolves, who committed six errors.
The shutouts were numbers 10 and 11 in that category for Lone Grove this season, which seems destined to make a run at the 3A State title.
Games set for April 15 against Comanche and Atoka were wiped out by rain. Davis traveled to Kingston on Monday and then hosted Kingston on Tuesday, with its next game coming at home on Friday against Ardmore.
