Centerville’s Big Inning Downs Mustangs in Season Opener


CENTERVILLE, IA – For four and a half innings, Davis County’s 2020 baseball season opener in Centerville was a tight back and forth affair.

However, Centerville took advantage of five straight walks to open the bottom of the fifth inning. The Big Reds scored 10 times in that decisive frame to beat the Mustangs 16-6.

Davis County jumped on out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first after Noah Zmolek scored on a passed ball, an RBI single from Gavin McCall, and an RBI double from Carson Maeder.

Centerville took their first lead in the game in the second inning (5-3) by sending 11 men to the plate. Senior McCain Oden provided the big blow with a two-run single.

The Mustangs fought back to tie the game with runs in the third and fourth innings.

Oden reached on an error and scored on a wild pitch to put the Big Reds back out in front, 6-5.

Davis County tied the game again in the top of the fifth thanks to an RBI single by Clay Collier.

Davis County (0-1, 0-1) awaits Central Lee for a non-conference match-up Tuesday night in Bloomfield.
