  • BEND — Striking with five runs in the top of the third inning, the Medford Rogues West Coast League baseball team distanced itself early in a 9-5 triumph over the Bend Elks at Vince Genna Stadium on Friday.
    The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Rogues (23-23 WCL), who claimed the first of a three game series against the Elks (26-20 WCL). The Rogues are third in the South Division Standings, trailing the second-place Elks by three games and leader Corvallis by seven.
    Joey Morgan went 2-for-4 — both hits were doubles — with three RBIs and a pair of runs scored for Medford, which stretched its lead to 8-2 after the five-run frame. The Rogues came out with three runs in the first inning.
    Seth Smith added a run-scoring double for the Rogues and Adonis Morrison went 2-for-4 with a run scored.
    David Peterson improved his record to 5-1 after throwing five innings. He gave up three earned runs on seven hits and a walk to go with five strikeouts.
