El Dorado American Senior Legion Post 119 made a day of it Saturday afternoon at El Dorado High School, downing Oroville 12-3 and 8-7 in some early summer baseball action.

Daniel Muzzi pitched all seven in the first game, finishing with six strikeouts. He allowed six hits, walked none and his dominance on the rubber made it easier for the hot bats of Post 119 to produce with ease. Jeff McKenzie had himself another home run, a two-run shot in the second inning, while Roger Gadow blasted out four singles in his 4-for-4 effort. Kevin Daniels was tough as nails in the box as well, finishing 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

Oroville drew first blood with a run in the first inning but El Dorado answered with seven runs in the second inning and peppered in runs in the third and fourth innings before tacking its final three in the sixth.

In the second game, things were a little more sticky.

ÒWeÕve been coming back and winning games all year so far,Ó El Dorado assistant coach Greg Schultz said. ÒI think we were feeling a little bit lackadaisical … we needed to wake up.Ó

Landis Provencial started on the mound for El Dorado in the second game but ran into trouble early on and surrendered seven runs between the first two innings.

ÒMr. Landis was outstanding in innings three through seven,Ó assistant coach Fritz Reynolds said. ÒHe struggled a bit in the first two but that was mainly due to having his pitches remain about the same speed. Once he started changing his speed on pitches he went out and pitched a real strong game.Ó

Down 7-0 after two, Post 119 put together one of their unique Òclimb backsÓ into the game. Lead-off man Marc Fackrell, David Landuk and Geoff Rossi scored in the third, and a big fifth inning brought in Joey Smith, Tommy Massa, McKenzie and Brandon Flynton with a clutch double from Jeff Miller and single from Shane Murphy in the inning.

Once tied, Rossi found himself on base due to an error. He reached second on SmithÕs single and after a productive fly out and a walk he scored the winning run in the eighth inning.

Provencial finished with six strikeouts in his seven innings before being relieved by Flynton, who closed out the eighth.
