BASEBALL: Collins’ walk-off single leads Oologah past Catoosa

OOLOGAH — Brian Collins smashed a walk off bases loaded single in the bottom of the seventh, sending 15th ranked Oologah to a 3-2 victory over No. 5 Catoosa in Class 4A baseball Thursday at Mustang Park.

In a game decided by errors, passed balls, wild pitches and stolen bases, Oologah center fielder Tyler Harris scored the winning run after reaching base via error in the seventh. Keenan Ferrier beat out a bunt, moving Harris to second, and Logan Armstrong’s bunt was fired late to third in trying to nab Harris, filling the bags.

With one out, Collins stepped to the plate and poked Cory Balocca’s pitch to center field, driving in Harris with game decider. Each team finished with six hits, but Harris was the lone batter to manage two.

Tom Helvick pitched 6 1/3 innings for Oologah, striking out 10, before departing in favor of Bryce Dietz. Dietz walked the first Catoosa batter he faced, loading the bases, then got Bailey Meyer to pop out at second and Hunter Kirkendoll to fly out in center.

The Indians committed five errors compared to three for the Mustangs, but they executed a triple play in the fifth. Catoosa did grab a 2-1 lead in the fourth when pinch runner Hunter Whittle stole second, moved to third on Nick Brown’s base hit and scored on an errant pick off throw to third.

Oologah pulled even in the bottom of the fourth after Dietz singled and ran home thanks to a wild throw to first on Drake Barnes’ ground ball.
