OSWEGO — Talk about ending things on an upswing.

Marmaton Valley High scored 12 runs in the sixth inning of their opener at Oswego Monday, turning what already had become a rout into a 22-4 runaway.

And then, they did it again.

Marmaton Valley led 13-0 before racking up another 12-run outburst in the top of the fourth, which was more than enough for Daniel Fewins and Andie Carr to complete a one-hit shutout, 25-0.

The victories give Marmaton Valley (6-10) three wins in its last four games with a pair of home games against St. Paul next on the schedule.

Funny part about Monday’s outburst was that it started out like an average high school baseball game.

The Wildcats trailed 2-1 headed into the top of the third, but took advantage of an error to tie it at 2-2. Daniel Fewins’s RBI single gave them a 3-2 lead and two more runs on a steal of home and wild pitch, respectively, to lead 5-2.

Two more runs on wild pitches upped the lead to 7-2.

Fewins, who wound up with four hits, including two doubles, four runs and three RBIs to lead the Wildcat offense, drove in a run with a double in a three-run fifth. He then scored on a wild pitch before Carr made it 10-2 with an RBI grounder.

The dam burst with the 12-run sixth.

Dominic Smith added a single and triple, while Ty Lord singled three times. Kele Michael added a double. Carr and Chris Ferguson both had singles.

Garrett Morrison got the start, striking out five over three innings, while allowing five hits. Michael pitched two scoreless innings, striking out five and allowing one hit. Mason Ferguson struck out two and allowed one hit in his only inning of work.

THERE WAS little doubt about the outcome in Game 2. Marmaton Valley led 6-0 after half an inning and 10-0 after two. A three-run third set the primer for the second 12-spot of the night.

Lord went 4-for-5, while Smith singled twice and tripled. Fewins tacked on a pair of doubles. Morrison also had a double. Mason Ferguson had a single, Brayden Lawson singled twice and Brendon Newman had a run and two RBIs.
