2A Zebras show grit, heart against Coweta

COWETA — Claremore had one tie and lost one game against Coweta in 2A summer league baseball action Tuesday.

The first game was a 1-1 tie in seven innings.  The Tigers prevailed 3-2 in the second contest, thanks to scoring a run in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Game 1: Claremore 1, Coweta 1

The Zebras got good efforts on the mound from both Brenden Scaggs and Will McHugh.

Scaggs started and pitched four scoreless innings.  He gave up just one hit, walked three, and struck out four.

McHugh went the final three innings.  He allowed two hits, one earned run, walked one, struck out one, and hit a batter.

Claremore scored its lone run in the fifth inning.  Tyelor Gaghins led off the frame with a double down the right field line.

Gaghins then took third after a balk but remained there after Coweta pitcher Dylan Kuester registered a strikeout and a grounder back to the mound.

Gaghins eventually scored though when Brandon Ulhorn reached on an error.

Coweta tied it in the last of the seventh.  Kuester was hit by a pitch with one out and eventually wound up at third base after a pair of wild pitches.

Kuester then scored on a Tiger infield hit with two outs.  McHugh, however, got a flyout to secure the rare tie baseball game.

Game 2: Coweta 3, Claremore 2

The game was back and forth but the Tigers pulled it out in the end.  The Zebras got a run in the top of the first inning.

Ulhorn reached on a leadoff error.  Claremore then loaded the bases when Kobe Penny and Hunter Nixon got on via a walk and hit batsman, respectively.

After a strikeout, Mickey Bywaters was then hit by a pitch to bring home Ulhorn.

Coweta countered with a run in the bottom half of the first and then scored another run to go ahead 2-1 in the third.

The Zebras answered though in the fourth inning, scoring a run without the benefit of a base hit.

Brock Johnston and Mark Davis opened the frame with consecutive walks.  Brayden Boutwell was then hit by a pitch to fill the bases.

McHugh, a pinch runner for Johnston, then scored after Ulhorn drew another walk.  The Tigers got out of that mess though with a double play and strikeout.

Coweta then came up with a one-out rally in the fifth for the game winner.  The Tigers got batters on via a base hit, their only one of the game, and an error to put runners on the corners.

Coweta then hit a grounder and Claremore nearly pulled off a great play to get the runner at the plate but it didn't quite happen.
