Roseburg uses rally to sweep CraterROSEBURG ' Crater threw a scare into top-ranked Roseburg in the second game of a Southern Oregon Conference baseball doubleheader Thursday at Legion Field.

But the Indians overcame a 5-2 deficit with a five-run fifth inning to post an 8-6 victory.

Roseburg also generated a big inning in Game 1, exploding for eight runs in the bottom of the first en route to a 12-1 win. That contest was stopped after five innings by virtue of the 10-run mercy rule.

Crater played very well in the second game but we came through with the big inning and the win, Roseburg coach Troy Thompson said.

Mitchell Nelson hit a sacrifice fly and John Tommasini and Justin Bruggeman stroked RBI singles to spark the Indians' uprising in Game 2. Crater added to its woes in the fifth inning with an error and a bases-loaded walk.

Senior Randy Summers yielded 10 hits and six runs but went the distance on the mound for Roseburg, which moved to 4-0 in the SOC and 7-0 overall.

— Charlie Reina went 3-for-4 and Tyler Schmidt 2-for-3 to lead the Crater attack. Summers, Blake Keitzman, Mitchell Nelson and Scott Allred each had two hits for Roseburg.

The first game was a nightmare for the Comets (4-4, 2-2 SOC) as Roseburg banged eight hits to score eight runs in the bottom of the first. Sophomore shortstop Boone Farrington drilled a three-run double and Keitzman clubbed a two-run homer to fuel the attack.

Keitzman, Summers and Brett Stephens each had two hits in the inning.

It's nice to come out and have a big inning right off the bat, Thompson said. We definitely put the pressure on.

Summers added a three-run homer in the third inning as Roseburg charged to a quick 12-1 lead.

Summers went 5-for-6 on the day with five RBIs and four runs scored.

Senior Eric Thompson, drawing only his second start of the season, held Crater to three hits, struck out five and walked no one in Game 1.
