    SOUTH WAYNE – Black Hawk plated nine unearned runs off 11 Argyle errors to sink the visiting Orioles, 10-6, and snap a 28-game Six Rivers Conference losing streak in a Six Rivers East baseball game held at BHHS on Tuesday, April 25.
    Josh Meier went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and another driven in to lead the Warriors (2-6 overall, 1-5 SRC) to their first conference win since they defeated Monticello, 11-1, back on May 12, 2015.
    Rece Shelton scored three times and Jason Truethardt scored twice for Black Hawk.
    The game was tied at 4-4 heading into the bottom of the fifth when the Warriors struck for three runs to take the lead for good. Shelton scored the go-ahead run thanks to an error, while Meier and Brody Milz each stole home to extend the lead to 7-4.
    The hosts added three more insurance runs in the sixth on Meier’s RBI-double and an error that brought in Meier and Treuthardt for a 10-4 advantage.
    Black Hawk grabbed an early 1-0 lead when Shelton lead off with a single and came in on a throwing error after stealing third base.
    After losing the lead in the top of the third, the Warriors got it back with two runs in the home-half of the inning as Noah Metz and Treuthardt each scored on errors to put the hosts up 3-1.
    Argyle rallied to take a 4-3 lead with a three-run outburst in the top of the fourth. Gavin Johnson’s two-out, two-run single gave the Orioles their first and only lead of the game.
    The Warriors struck back with a run in the bottom of the fourth when Michael Flanagan scored on another error to deadlock the score at four all.  
    Avery Baumgartner (1-1) earned the win in two and two-thirds innings of relief. He allowed two runs (none earned) on a hit and three walks with three strikeouts. Flanagan started and went four and a third innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks with two Ks.
    The Orioles, who defeated Belmont, 12-1, in five innings on Friday despite getting just three hits, out-hit the Warriors, 8-4, in Tuesday’s game.
    Black Hawk’s crossover doubleheader with Highland on Friday, April 28, and their Six Rivers East game with Pecatonica on Monday, May 1, were both postponed due the weather. Neither make-up date was available at press time.
    Black Hawk hosts Cassville in a Six Rivers crossover doubleheader on Friday, May 5, starting at 4:30 p.m.; and the Warriors have SRE game at home against Monticello on Monday, May 8, beginning at 5 p.m.
