Claremore’s Teague K’s Collinsville

COLLINSVILLE — Claremore senior pitcher Jacob Teague overcame a rough first inning to settle in and record 13 strikeouts in Monday’s 5-0 win over Collinsville.

Teague improved to 4-1 on the season after tossing six strong innings, before believed in the seventh by senior pitcher Dalton Clifton.

The crafty left-hander made his longest outing of the season in the Metro Lakes Conference battle, lasting six innings with 13 strikeouts, three walks and two hits allowed.

Claremore’s offense was kept in check for the first four innings, as Collinsville starter A.J. Austin matched Teague pitch-for-pitch.

T.J. Wood — a junior shortstop/second baseman — got Claremore’s first hit of the game in the top half of the third inning on a sharp single to right field off Austin.

Next batter up, Isaac Hollihan grounded into a fielder’s choice to shortstop, resulting in Brandon Varnell being thrown out on the 6-2-5 run-down between third base and home plate.

Both pitchers dueled through the fourth inning, and Claremore’s offense finally woke up in the fifth.

After a flyout by Andrew Byington to open the inning, Claremore pieced together three singles in the next four at-bats.

Varnell led off the hit parade, lacing Austin’s curveball to right-center field.

Wood followed with his second single of the game, advancing Varnell to third and Clifton to second.

Hollihan’s RBI-single to right field plated Varnell to put Claremore up 1-0.

Two batters later, Teague drove in Clifton and Wood with a two-run single to center field that extended Claremore’s lead to 3-0 and ended the day for Austin.

Claremore tacked on one more run in the sixth and seventh innings to seal the shutout win over Collinsville.

Wood’s RBI-single to center field scored Tyler Cagle, who reached on the hit by pitch.

Cagle’s RBI-double in the seventh drove in Bryce Howe with two outs.
