EL DORADO — Digging itself out of a first-inning 5-0 hole, host El Dorado Post 119 came back to defeat Del Oro 10-8 Saturday morning at Union Mine High School.

The victory was El Dorado’s third of the week against the Eagles and the first of three games the team played. Later, Post 119 trekked over to El Dorado High for an afternoon doubleheader with the California Academy of Baseball.

Missing sound defense behind him, starter Greg Alloway was on the hook for the early deficit as the visitors batted around. Post 119 stormed back with five of its own in the third on just two hits.

“We were still sleeping … we got the players out here probably a half hour too early,” El Dorado coach Brett Robinson said. “But once we settled in, realized the strike zone and shored up defensively we were OK.”

Post 119 bit low in the zone and went down in order the first two innings before adjusting and tying the score. Alloway put zeroes up the next two but surrendered a two-run double before Brendan McKillop took over in the fifth.

Nate Brown’s single was the lone hit in El Dorado’s four-run fourth as 119 took the lead for good. Lucas Fuller, Brown, McKillop and Matthew Gould all scored as Post 119 pushed in front 9-7.

Brown scored as Gould rifled an RBI double down the right field line in the bottom of the six.

RJ Blake, the winner on the mound Tuesday, came on in the seventh to close it out but two pitches in Del Oro had the tying run at the plate. An interference call hurt the Eagles as they inched closer before El Dorado ended the game by turning a double play in the field.
