Last week the Paris Eagles were hoping to turn things around from the early season slump that has seen them unable to get the run production they need.
They hosted Danville on Monday night. Scoring was at a premium for both teams. Kris Graham threw 79 pitches, striking out six over four innings, but the Eagles could only get one hit, with Ethan Needham driving in two with a timely base hit. Paris lost 4-2.
Ozark brought in their talented squad for a match up on Tuesday evening. Sophomore Pitcher Destin Davis toed the mound and would toss 85 pitches on the evening. Paris gave up big innings in the first and the fifth, but played solid in between. In the end, the four errors and big hits from Ozark did the Eagles in. They dropped the game 14-3 in five innings.
They ended the week on the road at Mansfield. They jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but Mansfield answered with three in the bottom half. It would stay close, as Paris tied it up in the fourth.
Mansfield again put runs on the board and Paris was not be able to answer. Mansfield got the win, 9-3.
Paris is now 0-4 on the young season, and hosts Lamar and travels to Waldron before an extended spring break allows them to focus on conference play down the stretch.
