Panthers steamroll Henley in opener

KLAMATH FALLS ' South Medford's baseball team didn't waste any time showing there won't be a drop-off from last year's breakthrough campaign.

The Panthers pounded out 17 hits and allowed only three in their season opener to rout defending Class 3A state champion Henley 14-3 on Thursday.

The kids did an excellent job, said South coach Steve Antich, whose Panthers won their first-ever Southern Oregon Conference title last season. They put the ball in play and got big hits when we needed them. It was a lot of fun to watch.

South senior Justin Meyer led the hit parade with a 4-for-5 effort that included three runs and three RBIs, while Marcus James was 3-for-4 with three RBIs, Jared Adamson 3-for-5 with two RBIs and Zach Wilson 3-for-4 with one run and a stolen base.

When you start the year you worry a little about the offense getting there, said Antich. I didn't know exactly what to expect but it was nice to see us end up pounding out 17 hits.

Josh Harris, Kenny Licea and Nick Donato combined to stymie Henley's offense, with Licea picking up the win after striking out nine and allowing only one hit through 32/3 innings.

— Colin Stock picked up two of Henley's three hits in the game.

EAGLE POINT 5, HIDDEN VALLEY 0 ' At Eagle Point, Nick Staller tossed a four-hit shutout with six strikeouts in leading Eagle Point to its second win of the season at The Yard.

Staller didn't walk a batter and needed only 83 pitches to get the complete-game victory, and was also 2-for-4 at the plate.

A.J. Nichols also had two hits, while Sam Birch supplied an RBI double in the first and Brandon Warner a two-run single in the fifth for the Eagles (2-0).

The Vikings rallied from an early 5-0 deficit to post their second victory in as many games and their first over Klamath Union in five years.

With the score tied at 7-7, Mazama's Quenby Cox smashed a ground-rule double to start the seventh, advanced to third on an error and came home on Fure's infield single that iced the victory.

Cox finished the game with a pair of doubles, scored twice and had an RBI. Daniel Stratton and Ashlie McDaniel also had two hits for the Vikings.

Winning pitcher Vanessa Pisan, a sophomore, blanked the Pelicans over the final three innings and struck out five.

Klamath Union fell to 1-2 with the loss.
