Zebras’ rally ends in tie with Pryor

CLAREMORE — Claremore’s rally for a split decision with the Pryor Tigers fell short in Game 2 of the Monday night doubleheader at Legendary Legion Field.

After dropping an 8-4 decision in Game 1, the Zebras tied Pryor, 6-6 in the night-cap.

Claremore left fielder Brady Brim hit into a game-ending double play in the bottom of the fifth inning to cap off the night.

Game 1

Pryor struck first with a 2-0 lead through the first four innings against Claremore starting pitcher Brady Brim.

Back-to-back singles by Tyler Arnold and Bradley Nixon set the stage for Drew Miller’s bases-loaded walk that scored Arnold and put Pryor up 1-0 in the top of the second inning.

Pryor starting pitcher Christian Campbell held Claremore to a pair of singles   from Britton Yoder and Cameron Smith through his first four innings.

In the top of the fourth inning, Pryor extended its lead to 2-0 on Conley Ledoux’s RBI-single that plated Nixon.

Nixon led off the fourth with a single to left field.

The Pryor lead grew to 7-0 in the top of the fifth as the Tigers chased Brim out of the game with two outs, while scoring four more runs off relief pitcher Dustin Weiesnbach.

Brennon Barth produced an RBI-double, and Miller added a 2-run double to spark the Pryor rally in the fifth.

Trailing 7-0 with two outs, Claremore’s third pitcher in the inning — Chris Dotson — struck out Pryor’s Gage Mendivil to end the top half of the fifth.

Needing an offensive spark, Brim led off the bottom of the fifth with a single to right-center field, and then scored on Garrett Wood’s RBI-single to right field that cut Pryor’s lead to 7-1.

Claremore answered again with three runs in the sixth, highlighted by Chris Dotson’s bases-loaded walk and a pair of throwing errors by the Pryor defense.

Weiesnbach led off the inning with a single to left field.

Pryor scored its final run in the seventh on Mendivil’s RBI-single that plated Nixon to secure the victory.

Game 2

Pryor jumped on Claremore early with a 5-0 lead after the first three innings.

A hit-by-pitch from Bryson Vanover to Arnold plated Mendivil to put Pryor up 1-0.

The Pryor lead grew to 5-0 in the third inning on a pair of RBI-singles from Barth and Drew McCollough.

Campbell led off the third with a triple down the right field line.

Pryor’s pitching staff held Claremore to one hit through three innings.

Claremore’s Parker Price ripped a towering double off the left field wall to break up the no-hitter in the second inning.

After Pryor made it 6-0 in the fourth, Claremore answered with five runs.

Behind the potent offense of Price and Spencer Sullivan, Claremore pulled back to 6-5.

Sullivan also tossed three impressive innings on the mound and held Pryor to one run with two strikeouts.
