Baseball: Feltman’s solid outing gives Oak Ridge 5-2 win over Conroe

Despite admitting to his coach that he “didn’t have his best stuff,” Durbin Feltman threw 5 1/3 innings of one-run baseball to help Oak Ridge down Conroe 5-2 Friday afternoon.

Feltman allowed six hits to the Tigers, while striking out another eight in the win, and seemingly battling every inning to keep the Tigers at bay.

“I was trying to explain, this is when you find out what kind of pitcher you are, when you don’t have your best stuff,” Oak Ridge coach Mike Pirtle said. “I thought he went and competed very well.”

With the loss, the Tigers fell to 3-9 overall, and 0-2 in District 16-6A, while the War Eagles are now 10-1, and 2-0. click here for complete story

The Tigers (3-7) were scheduled to play in the Texas City tournament over the weekend, but wet weather got in the way and Conroe never got the chance to take the field.

The Tigers will open District 16-6A play on Tuesday night against The Woodlands, which won the District 14-5A championship last year and claimed a state title in 2013. click here for complete story
