Monday’s High School Baseball Roundup
WISTER — In a prelude of next week’s Class 2A District Tournament, Wister pitcher Tyler Gibson threw a one-hitter as the Wildcats blanked the Pocola Indians 11-0 on Monday afternoon.Gibson struck out eight batters in four innings, allowing only a third-inning, lead-off single to Pocola’s Casey Sather — which spoiled the Wister senior pitcher’s perfect-game bid.Heavener 11, Kinta 0; Heavener 12, Kinta 3: In Heavener, the Wolves began Monday’s home doubleheader with a perfect, four-inning game from Aaron Shelton. He faced the minimum 12 batters in four innings, retiring 10 of them by strikeout.In the nightcap, the Wolves jumped out to a 6-0 lead. After the Eagles cut the deficit to 6-3 in the second inning, the Wolves had their second six-run inning in the third for a 12-3 lead.Leflore 16, Battiest 2: In Battiest, the Savages ended the regular season on a high note. Caleb Smith’s solo home run in the first inning made it 1-0, then Leflore added eight more runs in the second for a 9-0 lead.Whitesboro 16, Panola 4: In Panola, the Bulldogs jumped out to a 6-0 lead, and were never headed. Then, a seven-run sixth inning put the game into mercy-rule status since Whitesboro’s lead was greater than eight runs after five innings.Vian 13, Cameron 0: In Cameron, the Yellowjackets got three-hit by Vian pitching as Cody McAlpin and Anthony Wilson each were 1-for-2 and Samuel Humphries was 1-for-1.The Wolverines scored once in the first, twice in the second and 10 runs in the third.Webbers Falls 8, Arkoma 1: In Webbers Falls, the good news for the Mustangs was they played their first seven-inning game of the season, as they avoided a mercy-rule loss to the Warriors, who earlier this season beat them 24-0.Tyree Nolden’s RBI bunt single in the sixth inning cut Arkoma’s deficit to 4-1, but the Warriors came back with four runs in their half of the frame to put the game away.Sallisaw-Central 15, Panama 6: In Sallisaw, the Tigers jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but the Razorbacks (9-12) cut the deficit to 8-6 with a five-run fourth inning — highlighted by Gabe Harp’s two-run home run, his first homer of the season.However, with two outs in the fourth, the Tigers had a seven-run rally to put the game away.
