Keith Heyer struck out eight in a complete game and Zach LaBar brought home the winning run as Del Oro won a 1-0 pitchers’ duel against Valley Christian Tuesday in Loomis.

Heyer allowed just two hits in seven innings, while Valley Christian’s Jimmy Shaw punched out 10 and gave up two hits as well.

Heyer had the game’s only extra base hit, when he doubled in the second.

The Eagles (4-7) manufactured a run in the fourth after Bryce Beauchamp walked. Mark Leveron came in as a pinch-runner and eventually scored after Therin Heryford bunted him over and a LaBar infield hit brought him home.

Del Oro hosts South Tahoe Thursday at 4 p.m.
