  • CENTRAL POINT — Crater amassed 21 hits but couldn't parlay the offense into victory during a Southern Oregon Hybrid doubleheader against Roseburg Saturday.
    The Indians swept, 7-4 and 8-6.
    "We just had some costly mistakes," said Crater coach Chris Arnold. "We helped them out with a couple extra baserunners. Defensively, we didn't make good decisions and made some physical errors. Roseburg did hit the ball well. They're a very opportunistic team."
    The Indians (9-4, 6-1 SOH) scored six runs in the sixth inning of the second game to rally from a 5-1 deficit.
    The big blow was a three-run home run by Jacey Conklin. The Indians had three hits and two walks and were helped by an error by the Comets (5-10, 3-6).
    Crater's Rachel Ray was 3-for-4 and scored three runs, and Malorie Mitchell was 3-for-3 with two runs. Renee Murphy and Kenzie Rohde, who doubled twice, each had two hits.
    In the first game, Roseburg had a five-run second inning.
    Ray and Murphy each had two hits and a run for Crater. Murphy drove in two.
