ARGYLE - Juda dominated Argyle on the diamond from the start, scoring seven runs in the first inning on its way to an 11-4 win Monday.

"We weren't ready," Argyle baseball coach Travis Erickson said. "We had a lot of mental mistakes, and that just killed us."

The Panthers collected six hits, three walks and a hit batter in the opening inning. In the game, Juda collected 10 hits and six walks.

Jake Ramos started on the hill for Juda, pitching five innings and allowing five hits, four walks and all four runs, while striking out eight. Beau Benner pitched the final two innings, striking out the side in each inning. Benner also had two hits on offense.

Nick Martin started for the Orioles (4-12, 2-7 Six Rivers East) and struck out six. Nate Thomas pitched the final two innings.

Albany 5, Monticello 1

MONTICELLO - Albany senior Mike Elmer crushed a solo homer in the first inning Monday to help the Comets beat Monticello.

Albany senior Tyler Bauman pitched a complete game to get the win for the Comets. Bauman gave up just one earned run on two hits. He struck out four and walked one.

Monticello senior Brandon Holz pitched 5 1/3 innings and gave up three earned runs on four hits. He struck out five and walked two.

The Comets (8-6, 4-5) manufactured a run in the fourth. Albany senior Adam Zurfluh singled and reached second on an error. He went to third on a wild pitch and fellow senior T.J. Zweifel hit a sacrifice fly to give the Comets a 2-1 lead.

"We hit the ball hard," Monticello coach Jason Pinnow said. "We hit it right at them. Albany hit the ball when they needed to and scored runs when they needed to."

Monticello falls to 4-7, 3-5.
