The â€™Jackets made sure another lead didn't evaporate on Wednesday afternoon â€” but it wasn't easy.

The Holdenville Outlaws find themselves just a win away from playing for the championship of the 2011 OK Kids Midget State Tournament.

The Outlaws (48-6) will play at 8 p.m. tonight against the winner of Wednesday night's late game between the Durant Rangers and the Shawnee Muck Dogs for the right to play in Saturday night's state title game at 6 p.m.
McLOUD â€” The Spiro Blasters had to wait an extra day to get their first game in the 2011 OK Kids Preps State Tournament played, as their opener against McLoud was rained out Tuesday.
But the delay did not bother them as the Blasters routed the host team 15-3 Wednesday afternoon. The Blasters were slated to play again Wednesday night in a winner's-bracket semifinal.
Spiro used the long ball, four of them to be precise, to get them the run-rule victory. Colton Gamble hit two homers, while Brennan Dooly and Jace Pitchford each homered once.
I am just about finished with summer baseball. My midget team finished second to a good Durant team which is now battling at the state tournament right here in Poteau.
My prep team won their first game at its state tournament Tuesday in McLoud and were scheduled to play Chandler Wednesday night. The other three games were rained out Tuesday in McLoud, so there were games all day Wednesday and ours was scheduled to be the last. I wrote this before we played, so I donâ€™t know how it turned out.
