OKLAHOMA CITY â€” When this run of five straight baseball state tournament appearances began in the spring of 2010 for the Wister Wildcats, that season's 2010 Class 2A State Tournament and the fall 2010 Class A State Tournament, the Wildcats suffered losses to the same team â€” the Silo Rebels. The same ill fate happened to the â€™Cats this past weekend.
The Rebels used a six-run fourth inning, then held off Wister potential rallies, to down the Wildcats 7-5 in the Class 2A State Tournament semifinals on a chilly, drizzly Friday night at Dolese Park.
The season ended for the Wildcats at 23-3, while the Rebels (23-12) ended up losing Saturday afternoon's state title game to last spring's state runners-up, the Dale Pirates (who lost last year's championship game to the â€™Cats), at Shawnee's Ed Skelton Field.
