Weiesnbach mows down Collinsville

Zebra pitcher strikes out 9 in 4-2 win

PRYOR — Claremore junior right-handed pitcher Cole Weiesnbach battled through the triple-digit temperatures to strike out nine Collinsville Cardinals in a complete game performance Friday afternoon at the Pryor Tournament.

Weiesnbach’s performance on the mound, combined with Claremore’s timely hitting led to a 4-2 victory.

After dropping their first game of the day — 6-2 to Salina — the Zebras responded with a more aggressive approach at the plate.

The Zebras tallied four runs on five hits including a pair of doubles from Matt Whatley, Dalton Clifton and Andrew Byington.

Whatley’s lead-off double in the top of the first inning off Collinsville starting pitcher Craig Blevins jump-started the Zebras offense.

Whatley scored the Zebras first run of the game, scooting in from third base on the wild pitch to put Claremore ahead 1-0.

Collinsville, however, took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning on a double and a run-scoring single.

From that point on, Claremore answered with three runs and played solid defense to secure the victory.

Clifton’s two-out double in the top of the fourth evened the score at 2-2. One batter later, Whatley drove in Clifton with an RBI-single to right field to give the Zebras a 3-2 lead.

Claremore capped its scoring in the seventh with Byington’s double driving in Whatley to make it 4-2.
