WINSTON — Douglas capitalized on some struggles by four South Umpqua pitchers, scoring 10 runs in the opening two innings en route to a 13-1 win in five innings on Tuesday in a Class 3A Special District 4 baseball game at Withers Field.

The game was scheduled for O'Malley Field in Tri City, but moved to Douglas due to poor field conditions. South Umpqua was the designated home team.

The Lancers (2-9-1, 2-2 SD4) issued 11 walks and hit four batters in the contest. Seth Christian was 2-for-3 with two RBIs, Kadin Baker went 2-for-3 with a double and RBI and Jacob Huse knocked in three runs for the Trojans (5-6, 1-3).

S.U. scored its lone run in the first inning when Jeremiah Geiger singled in Kade Johnson.

Noah Burke pitched a three-hitter for Douglas, striking out six, walking one and hitting one batter.

The two clubs will meet in a doubleheader Friday at Douglas.
