EBF Tops Davis County

Joey Voyles shows the ball to the umpire after tagging out a Davis County runner at home plate during EBF’s win over the Mustangs.

The Rockets of Eddyville- Blakesburg-Fremont scored early and often while pitcher Noah Strausser limited Davis County’s scoring chances as EBF posted a 10-2 baseball win June 4. The Rockets scored in five of the six innings, took advantage of errors and was aggressive on the basepaths.

Strausser had a strong night on the mound striking out seven and walking one. He scattered four hits, but yielded one run. Strausser helped his own cause at the plate with a pair of singles and an RBI.

“That was one of the most complete games I have seen our guys play,” said a pleased coach Tom Hallgren. “Noah threw a ton of strikes, our defense made some really good plays, and our offensive approach was great.”

DJ Stout got the ball rolling for the Rockets with a leadoff single in the first inning. Jaden Herr doubled, then with one out, Wyatt Klyn cleared the bases with a triple.
