MEDFORD — Douglas bounced back with a 17-9 win over St. Mary's in the second game of a Special District 4 baseball doubleheader on Friday.

The contest ended after 6 1/2 innings due to a lightning strike. The Crusaders won the opener, 3-2.

The Trojans finished the regular season with an 8-7 record.

Douglas pounded out 17 hits in the nightcap. Evan Martin was 3-for-5, and Seth Christian, Gavyn Jones, Dominic Hale and Colby O'Toole all contributed two hits.

Beau Aldrich singled home the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning for St. Mary's (5-10) in the opener. Tristan Ledbetter hit an RBI double in the loss. Jones pitched well for the Trojans, allowing three hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Douglas loses four seniors: Christian, Hale, Jones and John Hunt.

"I feel this team came a long ways," Douglas coach Ron Quimby said. "The kids have really developed. Those seniors are going to be missed."
