TEXARKANA, Texas -- The Razorbacks' offense struck early and often Friday against the El Dorado Oilers, and their hard-throwing right-hander Kayden Keller was just as dominant from the mound.

The Hogs put up 11 runs on just 6 hits, and Keller cruised through three innings striking out 9 batters while allowing no hits, picking up the win.

Nate Moore and Collin McKenzie got back-to-back singles in the first inning, and were driven in by Traveler Couch's 1-out triple.

The hit parade that followed in the third inning saw the Hogs score 8 runs in the frame, highlighted by another RBI triple from Couch.

Moore later contributed a triple and Braylon Blair had an RBI single for the Razorbacks as well.

The Razorbacks will move into bracket play today as they continue to help host the Texarkana Invitational American Legion tournament.

Pulpwood dominates Bulldogs Thursday

The first inning for the Senior American Legion Bulldogs looked like the beginning of a good evening Thursday night at George Dobson field against Camden Pulpwood after they jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, only to have their lead erased for good as Camden put up 9 runs in the second inning, as well as 6 more runs in the third en route to a 15-4 victory.

Alex Galvan led off the game with a triple for the Bulldogs, followed by Malcolm Brown's fielder's choice RBI, and Trapper Golden with a triple that scored Brown.

Blake Jennings then had an RBI single in the second inning, along with a second RBI from Brown to complete the scoring for the Bulldogs on the night.

Camden would go on to bang out 9 hits, take 8 walks, and reach base on 4 errors from the Bulldogs.

Jefferey Neal would pick up the win for Pulpwood and Golden took the loss for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs will be in action on the diamond all weekend at Spring Lake Park as they help play host to the Texarkana Invitational American Legion tournament.
