Ethan Davis threw a three-hitter and struck out 10 in a complete-game shutout to help lead the Opp Majors to a 5-0 victory over Zion Chapel on Sunday night.

Davis was called to the mound in a game that the Bobcats needed to win after falling 6-0 to Greenville in the first round of the double elimination tournament on Saturday.

Davis also walked one in the win.

Opp led 1-0 all the way until the bottom of the fifth inning, where the Bobcats opened it up by scoring four runs.

Jud Owens drew an RBI walk with the bases loaded and two outs to give Opp a 2-0 lead. Dakota King then hit an RBI single for a 3-0 lead, and Jacob Johnson laced a two-run double to end the scoring drive.

Colt Harrell went 1-for-2 with a single; Holt Hall went 1-for-4 with a run; and Johnson went 1-for-3 to lead Opp.

The Bobcats will be back in action tonight at 7:30.

In pre-majors action Sunday, Opp demolished Goshen, 11-1 in five innings.

Opp scored seven runs in the third inning; and two runs each in the first and fifth.

Eli Johnson went 2-for-3 with two runs and two doubles; Gunner Wise went 2-for-4; and Lane Sirmon went 1-for-4 with two runs to lead the Bobcats.

On Saturday, Opp defeated Slocomb, 13-3.

Eli Johnson went 1-for-4; Lane Foster went 1-for-5; and Collin Holloway had two doubles.

Opp scored one run each in the first and second innings; five runs in the fourth; two runs in the sixth; and four runs in the seventh.

The Bobcats played a game Monday night, but it wasn’t complete when The Star-News went to press last night.
