The Edmond Sun
Edmond’s high school baseball teams won the Mayor’s Cup Saturday at the Bricktown Ball Park, taking two of three games against teams from Moore.
Santa Fe topped Southmoore, 5-1, while Memorial beat Moore, 7-2; defending champions North dropped a tight 3-2 contest to Westmoore.
SANTA FE 5, SOUTHMOORE 1
Santa Fe used four pitchers and a big day from center fielder Jacob Jerome to get by Southmoore.
The Wolves started scoring early, when Daniel Costello hit a sacrifice grounder in the first inning that scored Jerome. Santa Fe starting pitcher Andrew Sanderson retired the side in order in the bottom of the inning, and the Wolves put another run across in the second inning when Quin Walbergh singled to center, scoring Garrett Greenwood and Jerome to give Santa Fe a 3-0 lead.
Tanner Kliewer took the mound for Santa Fe in the third and retired the side after allowing an unearned run on a batter who reached on an error. Kliewer sat the Sabercats down in order in the fourth.
The Wolves put over another run in the sixth, when a Costello single again scored Jerome, and completed the scoring in the seventh when, with Jerome at the plate, Sam Endicott scored on a Southmoore error. Taylor Schoonover and Connor Sweeney wrapped up the pitching duties in the final three innings for the Wolves.
Jerome was 2-for-4 with three runs and Costello had two RBIs to lead Santa Fe.
MEMORIAL 7, MOORE 2
The Bulldogs put a run on the board in each of the first three innings before sealing the deal with four runs in the fifth and sixth frames against Moore.
The ’Dogs manufactured their first run as leadoff batter Hunter Schellhardt was hit by a pitch, stole second, advanced to third on a grounder and scored on a passed ball.
After the Lions answered with a run of their own in the bottom of the first, the Bulldogs again hustled for a score in the second when Cole Caldwell walked, stole second, advanced on a Garett Hill ground-out and scored on a dropped third strike to Steven Jones.
The Lions went down in order in their half of the second, and in the third, Matt Bruner singled and later scored to put the Bulldogs up 3-1.
Memorial’s big fifth inning began when Colin Simpson singled to score Jack Hale, and later scored himself when Jones walked with the bases loaded. Caldwell would later score on a Bruner ground-out to put the Bulldogs up 6-1. The teams traded runs in the seventh to bring the final to 7-2.
Parker Rigler, Jared Jones and Hill shared pitching duties for Memorial. Caldwell’s two runs led the Bulldogs at the plate.
WESTMOORE 3, NORTH 2
The Huskies put up two early runs, but gave both back in the seventh inning before falling to Westmoore in the 11th inning.
North got on the board in the second inning, when Cody Daylor was hit by a pitch, advanced to second on a sacrifice and scored on a Justin Reynolds single.
Reynolds tripled to lead off the fourth inning, then scored on a Colton Lagasse single.
