Teague tosses 2nd no-hitter

CLAREMORE — Tossing no-hitters is nothing new to Claremore senior left-handed pitcher Jacob Teague.

Teague recorded his second no-hitter  and the third for the Claremore Zebras this season Tuesday night in a 10-0 win over Grove at Legendary Legion Field.

The win over Grove improved Class 5A No. 2 Claremore to a 22-3 overall record and 11-0 in Metro Lakes Conference action.

Also, Claremore head coach Brent Payne notched his 597th overall coaching win.

“Teague really pitched well and had a good night,” Payne said. “He dominated out there, and offensively, we had some guys step up and hit it big when we needed it.”

Teague (5-1) finished with 13 strikeouts and one walk in five complete innings.

The Zebras took a 1-0 lead in the bottom half of the first inning on Teague’s RBI-double to left-center field that scored Claremore junior shortstop T.J. Wood.

Grove took advantage of a lead-off walk in the top of the second inning — its only baserunner of the game — but Teague rallied back with three straight strikeouts on a nasty curveball and a mid-80s fastball.

Through the first three innings, Teague handcuffed Grove’s lineup with seven strikeouts and one walk.

The Zebras stretched their lead to 4-0 in the bottom of the third inning with a two-out sacrifice groundout by Tyler Cagle that plated Teague, who reached on a hit by pitch.

After a single by Will Kinnebrew, Claremore junior first baseman Bryce Howe scored from third base on a wild pitch to make it 3-0.

One batter later, Claremore senior second baseman Dalton Clifton drove in Kinnebrew with a two-out RBI-single to right-center field and the Zebras led 4-0.

In the bottom of the fourth, Claremore sent 11 hitters to the plate and scored five runs on one hit.

Grove’s pitching staff in the fourth combined for six walks and one hit by pitch, while allowing a two-run single to left-center field by Howe.

“One of the best plays in baseball is getting a lead-off walk,” Payne said. “Our kids were really patient at the plate and they (Grove) had to throw a lot of pitches late in the game.”

Leading 9-0, Claremore sealed the run-rule victory with Cagle’s walk-off single to left-center field that scored courtesy runner David Moseby from third base.
