Deer Creek clobbers Shawnee

The Edmond Sun

EDMOND — Deer Creek took a 6-1 win from Shawnee at home Monday evening on the diamond.

Shortstop Jordan Boyer did most of the offensive damage for Deer Creek, turning in a 3-for-4 night with two runs and three RBIs, including a three-run home run in the fourth inning that gave the Antlers a comfortable lead.

DC starter Michael Brinska went the distance, striking out 12 and walking only three while giving up only the unearned, first-inning run and scattering five hits over seven innings.

The Antlers were down 0-1 in the third inning when Boyer singled, advanced on a walk to Cole Lindley and scored on Caleb Eldridge’s single to tie the game. The next batter was Dylan Rycroft, who hit a sacrifice fly that scored Lindley and put the Antlers up 2-1.

Deer Creek kept up the pressure in the fourth, as Aiden Doherty walked and Alex Forget reached on an error to set the table for Boyer, who hit a 1-2 pitch over the center field wall to put the Antlers up 5-1.

Forget put a cap on things in the sixth with a solo shot of his own and the Antlers led by the final score, 6-1.

Deer Creek (No. 3, 17-3) will visit Shawnee at 5 p.m. Tuesday.
