Prep baseball roundups: ACCS falls to Oak Forest, 9-5

NATCHEZ — Oak Forest Academy’s Dylan Dover struck out eight batters in four innings as the Yellow Jackets defeated the Adams County Christian School Rebels 9-5 Monday night.

After scoring four runs in the top of the third inning to make it a 6-0 game, Oak Forest had to hold off a middle-innings rally by ACCS in which the lead was down to just 6-4. The Yellow Jackets scored three runs over the final two innings to put the Rebels away. Dover helped his cause by going 2-for-4 and Blake Baker was 2-for-3 with a double.

Tyler Wilson was the losing pitcher as he allowed two earned runs on four hits and four walks, and he struck out three batters in three innings. Brandon Ross went 2-for-4 with a double and Dylan Galbreath was 2-for-2.

ACCS (1-4) plays at Cathedral today with the junior varsity game at 5 p.m. and the varsity game at 7 p.m.

Terry 14, Natchez High 0

TERRY — The Terry High Bulldogs had no problem taking care of the visiting Natchez High Bulldogs in five innings Monday night in the two teams’ MHSAA Division 6-6A opener.

Dalvion Jackson was charged with the loss on the mound for Natchez High as he gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks in three-plus innings. Davion Ward had the team’s only hit of the game.

Natchez High (1-3, 0-1) hosts Terry on Friday with the junior varsity game at 4 p.m. and the varsity game at 6 p.m.

Buckeye 13, Block 2

BUCKEYE, La. — It was not a good Monday afternoon for the Block Bears at the plate, on the mound or in the field in their loss to the Buckeye Panthers in a game that took just five innings to play.

The Bears had just two hits, walked six batters, hit two batters and committed five errors. The only good thing to come out of this game for Block was that it held Buckeye to three hits. The Panthers blew the game open with a five-run rally in the bottom of the first inning followed by a six-run barrage in the bottom of the second for an 11-1 lead.

Block (3-3) next plays at the Harrisonburg Tournament at 4 p.m. Thursday against host Harrisonburg.
