McALESTER — McAlester scored some runs, but it didn’t matter.

Whatever runs McAlester’s offense scored, its defense immediately gave back.

The Buffaloes committed eight errors in the second game of Saturday’s double-header at Mike Deak Field in McAlester, killing any chance of a comeback and helping the Noble Bears win a key district game, 15-10.

Noble also beat McAlester in the first game of the double-header, 4-2. Noble improved to 8-0 with the two wins, while McAlester fell to 8-2.
