Mavericks dominate in sweep
The North Medford Mavericks American A Legion baseball team received two electric pitching performances in a doubleheader sweep on Monday.
Jordan Frost and A.J. Doolittle both pitched two-hit shutouts for the Mavericks, who swept St. Mary's/Cascade Christian in back-to-back, five-inning 11-0 victories at North Medford High. Both games ended in five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.
Frost earned the win in the opener, tallying seven strikeouts to just one walk. He received a bases-clearing triple from Shaun Whitehead in the Mavericks' six-run first inning.
Whitehead went 2-for-2 with four RBIs, two runs and two stolen bases. Cory Haggans went 3-for-3 with three runs and had three stolen bases.
In Game 2, Doolittle fanned two and walked one for the Mavericks (9-6).
Cory James hit a two-run triple and was 2-for-3 in the game. Haggans hit another triple in the nightcap as he and Mike Paxton each went 2-for-2.
