SLIDESHOW: Bulldogs come back to top Tulsa Union on diamond

EDMOND — The Edmond Memorial softball team scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to erase a two-run deficit, then shut down Tulsa Union in the top of the seventh to take a 5-3 home win Monday evening.

Bulldogs pitcher Haley Squier struck out one, fielded a ground ball and threw to first base to get the next batter,  then induced a fly ball to center field for the final out of the game.

Memorial got on the board in the first inning, when Kayla Eichler walked, advanced on a single by Lindsay Littles and scored on a single by Kacey Taylor to put the ’Dogs up 1-0.

That was the score until the top of the fifth inning, when errors and walks by Memorial allowed three Union runs across the plate and the Redskins led, 3-1.

That score held until the bottom of the sixth inning, when Memorial worked the bases full with no outs as Littles was hit by a pitch, Squier walked and Taylor reached on a bunt.

A Union wild pitch allowed Littles to score and advanced Squier and Taylor. Makayla White then singled to right field, scoring Squier and tying the game at 3-3.

Coren Davis entered as a courtesy runner for White, and she and Taylor moved to second and third on a ground-out by Laura McHam.

Taylor scored easily when the next batter, Kylee Stone, singled to left field. The Union outfielder fielded the ball and threw to the plate as Davis came home, colliding with Union catcher Kayla Crutchmer, who was shaken up but finished the game. The ball rolled free and Davis crossed the plate to put Memorial up by the final score, 5-3.

Squier went the distance, allowing three walks, four hits and three runs in seven innings. She struck out six.

Now 8-3, Memorial will visit Sand Springs today.

  • spts-EM Byron Graham new baseball coach.jpg The unwavering Bulldog

    You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as Edmond as Byron Graham.
    He was born in 1947 at St. Anthony’s and was soon brought home to his house on Eighth Street. He never left, except for a stint to go to college at Oklahoma State and upon graduation, he landed right back teaching in the Edmond school district.
    Monday, Graham, a longtime educator and coach in Edmond, received a call informing him that he had been selected for the Oklahoma Coaches Association’s Hall of Fame. He will be inducted formally at 6:30 p.m. July 27 in the Southern Hills Marriott in Tulsa.
    “It’s quite an honor,” he said. “I was surprised because I know the high school put out some information last year and I didn’t make it. I thought it was a one-time deal and really didn’t know.”
