The Purdy Eagles (7-3) baseball team picked up two Ozark 7 Conference victories this week.

On Tuesday, the Eagles defeated Wheaton 5-2. Cameron Terry was one for three at the plate with 2 RBIs. Kevin Miller also had 2 RBIs for the Eagles and Riley Veith was two for two with two runs scored.

Kevin Miller got the win. He pitched seven innings, allowed two earned runs and struck out eight.

On Monday, Purdy picked up a 10-3 win over Southwest.

Purdy scored nine runs in the first four innings to salt the game away.

"I thought we played well in both of our games," said Purdy Head Coach Joshua Hughes. "Against Wheaton, we dug in and played good defense. Kevin did a good job on the mound. Our bats came alive against Southwest. The boys had a lot of fun."

The Eagles will be in action tonight at Sarcoxie. First Pitch is slated for 4:30 p.m.
