Huskies win at Putnam City

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Edmond North Huskies traveled to Putnam City Monday evening and came away with a 5-1 win.

North put up a pair of runs in both the first and second innings, then put on an insurance run in the seventh to take the win.

Kyle Stephens took the mound for the Huskies and allowed just three hits and an unearned run while striking out six and walking one in seven innings of work.

In the first, Nolan Wilson singled, advanced on a Jonathan Davis sacrifice bunt and scored on a PC error that put Davis on third base. Evan Page entered as a courtesy runner for Davis, and promptly scored on a wild pitch with Cody Daylor at the plate. Another Pirate error allowed Daylor to reach base, but consecutive fly-ball outs ended the inning with Edmond North up 2-0.

Stephens retired the side in order in the Pirate half of the first, and in the second the fielding woes continued for Putnam City.

North’s Colton Lagasse reached on error and advanced on a balk. Josh Garbrecht reached on an error and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Luke Reynolds, who reached first safely on yet another PC error, allowing Lagasse to score. Leadoff man Wilson hit a sac fly to left field that scored Garbrecht, and the Huskies led 4-0.

The Pirates had a pair of base runners in the bottom of the second after a walk and an error, but the Husky fielders picked off the lead runner and then ended the inning quickly when PC’s Sam Adams grounded to Garbrecht at short, who tossed to Wilson at second for the lead out and fired to Justin Reynolds at first base to turn the 6-4-3 double play.

The score stood at 4-0 until the bottom of the fourth, when PC’s Ryan Wood reached on an error and later scored on a single by Grason Wright to bring it to 4-1.

The bats went silent until the final frame, when Daylor singled. Page entered as a courtesy runner, and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Scott Johnson and a sac fly by Reynolds. A Lagasse triple scored Page and put the score to 5-1 Huskies.

In the bottom of the seventh, Stephens got the lead batter to ground out, then hit the next man to put a PC runner on the bases but quickly picked him off of first. After a late single, Stephens struck out the final batter to secure the 5-1 win for Edmond North.

The win puts North at 11-4 on the year. They are slated to face Putnam City at home at 4:30 Tuesday.
