McLOUD — 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.
