Report by Taylor Coe, Special to the Blues Blog

Oxford Blues trounced Bluewolf with a resounding 17-5 victory on a muggy afternoon in Morningside, improving their record to 3-1 on the season. Rob Repino turned in a solid effort at the mound, painting the inside of the plate to great effect, and Kate Cooney started in right field in her Blues debut.

"I got on base!" Kate said.

Game ball went to Joe Cognard, thanks to stellar defensive performance at the hot corner and a 3-run opposite field blast that nearly had Bluewolf outfielders picking through the underbrush out past the track in right field.

Chris Reid doubled twice in the offensive assault. The Blues offense, however, was all-around impressive, batting around the order in the third to knock in 9 runs.   

“I don’t think this has ever happened!” said Coach Repino.

With that cushion of insurance runs, the Blues offered up solid defense for the rest of the game and mercy-ruled Bluewolf in the sixth.
