Crater wins; GP stuns Indians

SOC Baseball

EAGLE POINT ' Crater pitcher Tony Davidson continued his comeback from a foot injury, blanking Eagle Point on a five-hitter in Southern Oregon Conference baseball Tuesday.

Davidson, who missed most of the first half of the season with a broken foot, scattered a handful of singles in his third straight solid outing.

He got support from Tyler Schmidt and Tyler Davis, who combined for seven hits, and from Zach Boskovich, who ripped a two-run double in the sixth inning to make it 4-0.

Davidson threw the ball real well, said coach Jay Campbell of the Comets, who are tied for third in the SOC with North Medford at 10-6 and are 12-8 overall. He was kind of in a zone today. He's starting to get well from the foot injury. Where he is now is where we thought he'd be at the beginning of the year.

Davidson struck out two and walked one.

He kept us off balance, said Eagles coach Rob Cowden. He changed speeds pretty well and moved the ball around. He didn't split the plate and put it belt high on many pitches.

— Schmidt was 4-for-4 and Davis 3-for-4.

Crater opened the scoring in the third when Charlie Reina was hit by a pitch with two outs, stole second, then came around to score on two errors on the same play. Schmidt added an RBI single to make it 2-0.

In the sixth, Schmidt ' who is batting .500 on the season ' Davis and Cory Staniforth began the inning with singles to load the bases. Boskovich then doubled down the right-field line.

For Eagle Point (9-12, 4-12 SOC), Logan Fosenburg was 2-for-3.
