Memorial, North, Santa Fe compete in 1-run contests in Edmond Classic

EDMOND — Tanner McColl kept Edmond Santa Fe off balance by mixing speeds and spots Friday night and closed out the final three innings to preserve Edmond North’s third victory of the season over the Wolves.

The senior McColl, who missed his sophomore season due to Tommy John surgery, struck out pinch hitter Kevin Orr swinging with a high fastball to clamp onto the 4-3 triumph on the final out. McColl relieved Nate Parks, who fanned seven hitters in just four innings.

Edmond North’s Nolan Wilson singled in the winning run by plating Jared Wilson breaking a 3-3 tie. Fellow Husky Josh Garbrecht (2-for-2) and Santa Fe’s Daniel Costello (2-for-4) were the only hitters in the game to tally multiple hits.

Games begin at 10 this morning with the finals slated for 3 p.m. at sites Edmond North and Edmond Memorial.

Over at Edmond Memorial, Edmond Santa Fe hurler Jacob Jerome was cruising through the first five innings with 8 strikeouts. The Wolves led 6-0 before Memorial came alive in the top of the sixth, plating six runs on six hits to get even.

In the bottom half of the inning, Costello (2-for-4, 2 2Bs) doubled to right and advanced to third on Sam Endicott’s (3-for-4, 2 RBIs) base hit. Colin Lyon then drove home the game-winning run with a hit to left to make it 7-6.

Santa Fe’s Taylor Schoonover picked up the win in relief and Xavier Sundman came in for the save.

In the early game Friday at Edmond North High School, the Class 6A defending state champion Huskies threw in a clunker, stranding a dozen baserunners in a 3-1 setback to a Moore team that got defeated by Edmond Santa Fe 19-4 on April 9. The tournament was washed out on Thursday and moved a day back.

The lone run the Huskies could muster came in the top of the second inning when Scott Johnson came home on chopper to second by catcher Riley Minhinnett. Johnson ended the contest with a pair of hits (2-for-3) along with fellow Huskies Cody Daylor (2-for-4) and Evan Page (2-for-4). Leadoff hitter Wilson led all batters with a 3-for-4 performance. There were not any exra-base hits in the game.

Deadlocked at 1-1, North committed three consecutive errors as the Lions took a 3-1 lead in the last of the third. The Huskies actually outhit Moore 11-6 and batted .367 (11-for-30).

Edmond North starter Luke Reynolds pitched well enough to win it, lasting the full seven innings holding Moore to a .240 batting average (6-for-25).

Husky third baseman Justin Reynolds accounted for a pair of defensive outs in the bottom of the third inning. Leading off the bottom of the frame, Reynolds ran in on a nubber down the third-base line, picked up the ball barehanded in stride and threw off balance to first for the out. He later saved North from allowing the Lions a fourth run, when he stayed down on a difficult hop and nailed a runner at home attempting to score from third.

In the second inning, the Huskies turned a 4-6-3 (Wilson-Garbrecht-Nate Parks) double play.

    The Masters lumbered on last week without two of pro golf's biggest names, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and fans changed the channel. The PGA needs someone with star power if it's going to lure people back to the game.
