Boone gets the trifecta on district games. Ostertag was on the hill for Conner, with Purnell on the mound for Boone.
I think both starters were over pumped the first inning. Ostertag was staying high and Purnell was keeping it low. I think the ump behind the plate made them work harder than needed. Second inning on, both pitchers got in their groove. Ostertag goes 5 innings, w' Craddock in for relief. Purnell goes 6 and gets his 3rd district win for the season and Faehr comes in the 7th to get the save.
Boone capitalized on walks and errors to get their runs.
Boone won the game with no hits and Conner had 3 hits.
Both teams had a couple of errors. What is tha old saying, " walks are good as a hit". Tonight that stands true.
Conner has Cooper left on their district schedule, a win could give Conner a tie w/ Ryle at 1-2. The 33rd district tourney is going to be one of the toughest again.
Boone 3 -0
