OGDEN -- After suffering their first defeat in region play to start the season Tuesday afternoon, the Ogden Tigers got back on track by defeating crosstown rivals Ben Lomond 8-0 Thursday afternoon thanks to a couple of big innings at the plate.
"I was proud of the way that we responded after what happened earlier this week," Ogden coach Troy Kolan said. "Joe (Bischoff) pitched a great game and kept them off-balance with his curveball today. We had some key hits from Hunter (Anderson) and Kameron Laird and that made all the difference."
Both pitchers threw the ball extremely well in the beginning as Bischoff and Ben Lomond's Alex Craft each threw three scoreless innings. Those three innings lasted a grand total of 30 minutes as each team was cruising defensively.
However, it was the fourth inning that the Tigers got things going. They pushed across two runs in the bottom of the fourth and chased Craft from the game. Once Craft left, Ogden blew the game wide open with two-run singles from Anderson and Laird to put the home side up 8-0.
"When we got that first lead, we were able to settle down and play the way we know how," Kolan said. "This is how we want to play each and every game and hopefully this will springboard us to bigger things this season."
Bischoff threw the complete game six-hitter with 10 strikeouts in helping the Tigers to the victory. Anderson had two hits and Bischoff also scored twice in the win.
* MORGAN 4, GRANTSVILLE 0: At Morgan, the Trojans' Braden Daniel threw a complete game two-hitter with 12 strikeouts as Morgan picked up their first region win of the year.
Cameron Jarrett helped the home team's cause with a towering three-run blast in the Trojans' four-run third inning.
* STANSBURY 8, BEAR RIVER 4: At Stansbury, the Stallions broke out of a 3-3 tie with five runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
Winning pitcher Jesse Clingman and Matt Lindsley each had triples for Stabnsbury. Taylor Ramsdell doubled for Bear River. Brock Hill took the loss.
* CLEARFIELD 3, EAST 1: At Clearfield, the Falcons put together a three-run sixth inning to earn their first win of the season.
Logan Neerings tossed a three-hitter with seven strikeouts and just one walk. The Falcons defense also played well behind him, helping Neerings out of a bases-loaed jam late in the contest.
In the sixth, Dylan Moore and Connor Parry walked, advancing on passed balls and Clay Holcombe's single. Holcombe later scored after Neerings sacrifice fly was thrown away by East.
Holcombe had two hits for the Falcons (1-5 overall, 1-0 league).
