Thursday's Regular-Season Baseball Roundup

April 21, 2012

FORT GIBSON — It was a terrific Thursday for the Poteau Pirates baseball team at the opening day of the Fort Gibson Tournament at Carr-O'Dell Park.
Poteau, which outlasted Sperry 7-6 in 10 innings in a battle of Pirates, then got past tournament-host Fort Gibson 7-6.
The Pirates will play at noon today in the championship game. The game was originally scheduled for 5:30 p.m., but was moved up to noon to accommodate Poteau's prom tonight.
In the victory over Sperry, Davey Bullard's sacrifice fly scored Kaydon Evans in the 10th inning to break a 6-all tie.
The 10th inning was forced as Jace Pitchford's two-run home run tied the game at 5-5 after nine innings. It was his third homer this season.
Wilson Klutts (4-4) got the win as he pitched all 10 innings with 10 strikeouts.
In the victory over Fort Gibson, the Pirates rallied from a 5-3 deficit with four runs in the fourth inning to take a 7-5 lead thanks to a two-RBI double by Klutts, a Fort Gibson error and Blake Roley's sacrifice fly.
The Tigers cut the deficit to 7-6, and had the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth inning. However, Poteau pitcher Jake McMillin (3-4) got Fort Gibson's Dean Igert to fly out to end the threat.
Roley's sixth home run of the season, a three-run shot, put Poteau ahead 3-0 in the opening inning, only to see the Tigers tie the game in their half of the inning.
A two-run third inning put the Tigers ahead 5-3, setting the stage for Poteau's rally.
Panama 8, Warner 5: In Panama, the Razorbacks (11-13) broke a 5-all tie with a three-run sixth inning, thanks to an RBI single by Brice Smith and a two-RBI single by Tyler Sebo to help the Hogs get past Class 2A's 12th-ranked Eagles.
Heavener 4, Hartshorne 2: In Heavener, the Wolves (7-11) got a strong pitching outing by Trevor Smith (3-3) as he evened his mark on the season.
Wister 9, Broken Bow 8: In Broken Bow, a three-run second inning and a single run in the third inning broke a 3-3 tie to put the Wildcats ahead 7-3.
After a two-run sixth inning put the ’Cats ahead 9-3, the Savages scored five runs in the sixth to make it 9-8. In the seventh inning, Colby Turnipseed got the side out in to get the save and get a win for Clint Crane, who pitched the first 5.2 innings.
Hackett, Ark., 5, Pocola 3: In Hackett, Ark., the hosts broke a 2-2 tie with three unearned runs in the sixth inning to take a 5-2 lead.
