El Dorado picks up road victory over Sheridan

SHERIDAN – Justin Dumas is having quite a start to his senior season.

A left-hander, Dumas collaborated with Jonah Davis on a no-hitter last week at Pine Bluff.

On Tuesday, Dumas delivered another sterling performance to lead El Dorado past Sheridan 9-3 in a 5A South tilt.

Dumas allowed three hits and three runs with two being earned over five innings of work to pick up the win. He walked two and struck out six to win his second straight start.

Davis worked two scoreless innings with four strikeouts to seal the victory. He allowed one hit and didn’t issue any walks.

The Wildcats banged out 14 hits in the contest, jumping out to a 5-0 lead before Sheridan scored all three of their runs in the fourth to pull within 5-3.

However, the Wildcats pulled away with Jake Webster-Moore singling home a run in the fifth and Holden Lowry drove in a run in the sixth with a ground out before Mitchell Polk delivered a two-run single in the seventh.

Dumas helped his own cause by getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the third that preceded a two-run single by Hunter Lawrence.

Xorian Robinson opened the scoring in the second with an RBI double.

Peyton Howard and Webster-Moore each had three hits for EHS, while Shadarious Plummer, Lawrence and Polk each had two hits.

Lawrence and Polk each drove in two runs in the win.

The Wildcats (5-2, 4-1) and Yellowjackets are scheduled to square off Friday at the El Dorado/Union County Recreation Complex.
