OGDEN — The Tigers won their second game in two days Wednesday — a 9-2 Region 11 victory over cross-town rival Ben Lomond — at Ogden High for a season sweep of the Scots.

They hope to make an even bigger statement Friday against Tooele.

Ogden senior right-hander Chezarae Garcia tossed a four-hitter with 16 strikeouts.

The Tigers’ Adelena Duran was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle. Katelyn Shaw had two hits; Nikki Thompson ripped a triple; and Taylor Garner drilled a double for Ogden (9-7 overall, 3-5 league).

The Scots are 1-12, 0-8.

• BEAR RIVER 4, STANSBURY 1: At Stansbury Park, the five-time defending state 3-A champion Bears snapped the Stallions’ 14-game winning streak and moved into a first-place tie with Stansbury (16-2, 7-1) with four league games remaining.

Senior right-hander Jordan Theurer, who has signed with Southern Utah University, allowed seven hits with seven strikeouts and no walks.

Freshman Brenna Hinck went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBIs and scored a run. Theurer was 3-for-4; Bailee Trapp drilled a double with a bases-loaded walk; and Erin Fox had an RBI single for three-time defending league champion Bear River (12-2, 7-1), which has won its last six games.

• GRANTSVILLE 12, MORGAN 0 (five innings): At Morgan’s Wilkinson Complex, the Cowboys (9-4, 5-2) blanked the Trojans (3-12, 1-5).
