  • EAGLE POINT — Brandon Wilson tossed a gem in the opener but Eagle Point faltered in the nightcap of a nonconference baseball doubleheader split with Douglas.
    The Eagles took the first game 3-1 then dropped a 7-5 decision at The Yard Friday.
    Wilson (3-0) struck out eight and walked none in needing just 73 pitches to throw a three-hit complete game.
    "(Wilson) was dominating," said Eagle Point coach Adam Randall. "He's a strike-thrower and had command of three pitches."
    The Eagles (4-2) took a 1-0 lead in the fourth when Bubba Skogseth opened with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Wilson's RBI single.
    In the fifth, Jesse Sattler doubled and scored on a single by James Dixon. Eric Radcliffe replaced Dixon as a pinch runner and moved to third on a stolen base and passed ball. Radcliffe ended up scoring on a first-and-third rundown play.
    Justin Hughes and Skogseth collected two hits apiece for the Eagles.
    In Game 2, the Eagles committed three errors, hit four batters and stranded seven runners
    "We gave up seven free bases and that makes it pretty impossible to win in that situation," said Randall.
    Andrew Hangaard had two hits and one RBI, Dixon rapped a single and double and Lucas Morris added a two-run double for Eagle Point.
    "We took some great swings and had some good at bats," Randall said. "Unfortunately we lined out a lot with guys in scoring position."
