Sixth-inning rally leads Pryor past Claremore, 8-3

CLAREMORE — The Claremore '3A' Zebras started out with a bang Saturday afternoon but lost their intensity as the Pryor Tigers rallied to an 8-3 victory in the Three Rivers Tournament finale at Legendary Legion Field.

Claremore built a 2-0 lead in the bottom half of the first inning on Jacob Teague's RBI-single and Bryce Howe's RBI-double off Pryor starting pitcher Zack Hammock.

Claremore catcher Matt Whatley got the first inning going with a bunt single up the third base line and then advanced to second base on Andrew Byington's sacrfice bunt. Whatley would score Claremore's first run on Teague's laser-single to right field to put the Zebras ahead 1-0.

One batter later — Howe — smoked Hammock's fastball to deep left-center field as courtesy runner Dalton Clifton motored around the bases to increase the Zebras' lead to 2-0.

On the mound, Teague coasted through the Pryor lineup in the second and third innings holding the Tigers without a run and a hit.

Both Teague and Hammock dueled in the fourth inning with both pitchers showing great command and composure.

Pryor, however, narrowed the deficit to 2-1 in the top half of the fifth inning with Anthony Martinez drawing a lead-off walk from Teague. After a wild pitch past Claremore catcher (Matt) Whatley that allowed Martinez to advance to second base, Spencer Hinson's sacrifice fly to deep center field plated Pryor's first run.

Martinez tagged up on the fly ball, advanced to third base and then took advantage of an errant throw to home plate to get the Tigers within a run of the Zebras at 2-1.

In the bottom of the fifth, Claremore answered back with a run on a hit to make the score 3-1. Whatley drew the lead-off walk from Hammock and then stole second base before scoring on Byington's RBI-double to the right field corner.
