MENA — Sheridan took advantage of three errors in the first inning — scoring five runs — as the Yellowjackets defeated an improved Mena baseball team 11-7 Monday night and ended a two-game skid.
“It was a sloppy game and we didn’t play real well,” Sheridan head coach Mike Moore said. “But we played well enough to win.”
Mena scored two runs in the second and five in third to make it 9-7 but Sheridan (11-4) would add a couple of insurance runs to secure the victory.
Tyler McKinzie was credited with the win after pitching four shutout innings of relief for Sheridan. Tadd Daggett led the team offensively with three hits.
David Rainwater and Lathan Wylie had two hits each.
Sheridan will play Little Rock Fair in a doubleheader today and will play at Pine Bluff on Friday.
Following the statewide rainfall over the weekend, many of Monday’s baseball games were postponed due to poor field conditions.
The game between Crossett at Star City has been moved to Friday and the Bulldogs’ next game is Thursday against Dumas.
The game between Newport and Stuttgart was also postponed. It has been rescheduled for April 28.
