Paris Run-Rules Two Rivers in Conference Opener, 11-0

After returning home from a tough 4-2, non-conference loss on Monday at Dover, the Paris Eagles opened their 2023 conference campaign on Tuesday at home versus Two Rivers. Two Rivers was playing their second conference game after having lost their opener at Subiaco Academy by the score of 14-4 on Monday.

Paris starting pitcher Daxson Baumgartner got his second start of the young season after getting the win last week in the season opener against Waldron. Baumgartner has been a much-needed addition to the Paris rotation, and on Tuesday night, the sophomore pitcher looked good again leading the Eagles to a shutout win over Two Rivers. Baumgartner was relieved in the fifth inning by freshman Kort Tencleve who also looked good again in relief for the Eagles.

Paris hit the ball at will and scored multiple times by advancing runners on defensive errors by the Gators. It was a good win for the Eagles to open the conference season before they travel to Booneville on Friday.

Weather could play a factor for Paris on Friday at Booneville. As today’s game was played, the winds increased along with cloud cover and a drop in temperature. This combined with a forecast that is predicting rain for the rest of the week may play a factor in Friday’s conference match-up.

The Eagles are scheduled to play at 4:30 p.m. on March 10 at Booneville. The Booneville / Paris series has produced some dramatic moments over the past few years, and in 2023, the Bearcats are loaded and are one of the teams predicted to compete for the conference title. But, again, weather may be a factor in a year where conference teams will play each other just once during the season prior to the district tournament.
