LITTLE ROCK — Mayflower turned two double plays and one triple play Friday in a 5-2 baseball victory over Episcopal Collegiate at Lamar Porter Field.
The Eagles (17-5) moved to 5-1 in conference.
Mayflower broke a scoreless tie in the fourth with four runs on singles by Trey Bradley, Jason Dawson, an error, a two-run single by Jeremy Barnhart and a single by Tyler Godwin.
In the fifth, the Wildcats loaded the bases with no outs but Mayflower avoided major damage after right fielder Tyler Herrin caught a line drive, doubled the runner at first, then Bradley threw out another runner to complete the triple play.
The Eagles added another run in the sixth on a leadoff double by Godwin, single by Michael Post and a triple by Derek Vickers.
Vickers struck out four and walked one in hurling a six-hitter. The Eagles were led at plate by Dawson, who went 3 for 3 and Godwin, who went 2 for 4.
