Edmond Memorial lights up scoreboard

Bulldogs win pair on the diamond

EDMOND — Speedy freshman Eli Davis bunted the tying run home and then scored the winning run on a single by catcher Colin Simpson to give Edmond Memorial an 11-10 comeback victory over Stillwater June 25. In the first game at Edmond Memorial, the Bulldogs had scored a run-rule 12-4 triumph over crosstown rival Edmond Santa Fe.

Memorial got on the board first against Stillwater with a four-run blast in the first inning. Davis started the rally with a single, but was erased at second. Matt Connelly ripped a single and went to second on a walk to Simpson. Designated hitter Kellen Manek then brought Connelly home with a sharp single to left.

Simpson and Manek both scored on a single by Cody Ebert. Ebert then moved to third on a double by Reese Garvie and came home on a sacrifice fly to deep center by Hunter Jackson to make it 4-0.

The Bulldogs made it 6-0 in the third when Ebert led off with a single to right and traveled to second on a passed ball. After Garvie walked, Jackson singled to bring in Ebert and eventually scored on a sac fly by Cody Oliver.

Shades of their recent game at Stillwater when the Bulldogs blew a 12-2 lead to lose 13-12. The Pioneers rallied for 10 runs over two innings to go on top 10-6. But Hayden Brauser calmed the Stillwater bats and the Bulldogs fought back with two runs in the sixth to make it 10-8 with one inning left.

With one out and one in, Davis laid down a perfect bunt that the third baseman could only look at as Seth Graves sped home with the tying run and Davis beat the throw to first. Davis then stole second an

Against Santa Fe, the Bulldogs launched the rout in the second inning when Evan Nicklas drew a walk with one out and promptly stole second. He came home on Ebert's single and Ebert scored on a booming double by Alec Johnson. After Garvie was hit by a pitch, Simpson and Connelly hit back-to-back singles to make it 4-0.

 It became 6-0 when Manek unloaded a double into the gap in left which was more than enough for Rhett Wallace and Conner Kinnier on the mound.

After two scoreless innings, the Bulldogs got six more to wrap it up. Jared Jones reached on an error and stole second and scored on a double by Nicklas. The Wolves intentionally walked the slugging Ebert, but Johnson made them pay with a double to right that scored Nicklas and Ebert to make it 10-4.

Garvie's triple brought in Ebert and Johnson scored on Simpson's third hit of the night. Manek then followed with his second double and third RBI of the game to wind up the scoring.

Kinnier set the Wolves down in order to clinch the victory.
