GAME ONE
Overview:
Dakota Ebarb's fifth-inning grand slam fueled a 9-2 win over Concordia in game one Saturday. Ebarb's big day started in the first inning when he doubled in a pair of runs to give Ozarks a 2-0 lead. Brady Taylor wouldn't need much offense as he was dominant on the mound for the Eagles. Taylor didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning and Concordia wouldn't score until the sixth inning. The Eagles tagged the Concordia pitching staff for three more runs in the sixth. Sam Swartz had an RBI single and Breyden Varner drove in two runs with a double. Taylor pitched a complete game and scattered six hits. Ebarb would finish 2-for-4 with 6 RBI. Swartz and Varner also had two hits.
