Oxford tops ‘Dores with walk-off

Baseball’s version of the Crosstown Classic took center stage Thursday night as Oxford hosted crosstown rival Lafayette at Edwin Moak Field where the Chargers came away the victor in a 2-1 win.  Oxford (10-0) got a timely hit from pitcher Houston Roth in the bottom of the seventh inning scoring first baseman Jack McClure and giving the Chargers the walk-off win over the Commodores (5-4). (March 20, 2015, Page 2B)

With three verbal commitments to the Southeastern Conference school in its backyard and a handful of junior college signees on the roster, it’s no secret Oxford will be one of the state’s top teams once again. (February 27, 2015, Page 7)
