Collinsville drops Claremore, 8-2

CLAREMORE — The Collinsville Cardinals took advantage of two costly errors by the Claremore Zebras in the fifth inning and cruised to an 8-2 victory Tuesday night at Legendary Legion Field.

Clinging to a 3-2 lead, Collinsville erupted for four runs after fielding errors  by Claremore shortstop Cole Weiesnbach and Claremore third baseman Bryce Howe, and a two-run double by Gary Olivier.

Chase Wilkins led off the top of the fifth inning with a walk, thus ending Claremore starting pitcher Cameron Smith’s outing on the mound.

Smith suffered the loss after allowing three runs on three hits with seven strikeouts and five walks in 5 1/3 innings.

After Connor Crutchfield reached first on Weiesnbach’s fielding error, Collinsville first baseman Stanley Sallee plated Wilkins and Crutchfield with a two-run single to left field that put the Cardinals ahead 4-2.

Two batters later, Dillon Russell drove in Brayden Varner after Howe’s fielding error with two outs extended Collinsville’s lead to 5-2.

A two-run double by Olivier to left field tallied Collinsville’s final two runs of the fifth and increased the Cardinals’ lead to 7-2.

Up until the top of the fifth, the Zebras and Cardinals were deadlocked at 2-2.

Claremore jumped out front 2-0 in the bottom of the first inning as Howe’s two-run single off the right field wall plated Weiesnbach and Matt Whatley.

Collinsville answered in the top of the second inning with two runs to knot the game at 2-2.

A RBI-double by A.J. Austin with one out scored Craig Blevins to narrow the deficit to 2-1. Two batters later, Keith Hill drove in Austin with a two-out RBI-double to left field that tied the game.

Collinsville’s pitching staff held Claremore’s offense to two runs on seven hits.

Weiesnbach, T.J. Wood, Whatley, Howe, Smith, Chris Dotson and Spencer Walden recorded hits for Claremore.

Collinsville scored its final run in the top of the sixth inning on Crutchfield’s RBI-single.
