Spencer’s 2-run HR lifts Claremore past Sequoyah, 4-3

CLAREMORE — Erica Spencer belted a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning Friday morning to spark the Claremore Lady Zebras past the Claremore Sequoyah Lady Eagles, 4-3 in the Claremore/Coweta Tournament.

Sequoyah built a 2-0 lead early on before Spencer’s game-tying bomb off Lady Eagles relief pitcher Erin Rogers over the left-center field fence.

Claremore senior left fielder Krista Wolfe put the Lady Zebras up 3-2 on an RBI-single up the middle that scored McKenzie Couch.

Sequoyah, who bounced back to beat Adair 6-3 and Durant 8-5, led 1-0 in the top of the second inning. Mackenzie Thomas opened the second with a double off the center field wall and then scored Randi Vincent’s bunt single between third base and the pitcher’s circle.

The Lady Eagles’ lead grew to 2-0 moments later on Makenna McGill’s sacrifice fly to left field that scored Sydney Blue from third base. Blue reached base on a infield single that got between Claremore pitcher Kaylee Bart and second baseman Stephanie Schivally.

Sequoyah’s pitching — starter Amanda Chancellor and relievers Erin Rogers and Jodi Brown — allowed four runs on five hits.

Rogers, who tossed 3 2/3 innings before Brown entered in the bottom of the fourth, held Claremore’s offense without a hit until Hailey Seago’s one-out single to center field.

Seago’s timely hit sparked the Claremore offense in the fourth and Spencer’s two-run homer with two outs knotted the game at 2-2.

In the top of the fifth, Thomas came through with two outs  on an RBI-single that plated Brown and tied the game once again at 3-3.

Then, in the bottom of the fifth, Claremore’s Sarah Brown opened with a lead-off single to left field and advanced to second on Ally Johnson’s sacrifice bunt.

Claremore head coach Jim Sherl inserted pinch runner Caley Robinson at second base in place of Brown.

Seago’s single to center field advanced Robinson to third base. On the day, Seago had two singles against Sequoyah and a towering three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth to lead Claremore past Adair, 11-2. Courtesy runner Brooke Dicus came on in place of Seago at first base to put runners on the corners.

One hitter later, Bart hit a grounder to second base that forced Dicus out for the second out and Jordan Hughley’s errant throw to first baseman Amanda Chancellor allowed Robinson to cross home plate for the game-winning run.

Note: Schivally also recorded a three-run homer over the left-center field wall in the fourth inning to power Claremore over Adair, 11-2. ... The Lady Zebras also dropped a 3-2 decision to Durant in the final game of Friday’s action. ... The Lady Zebras return to Metro Lakes Conference play on Monday at 5 p.m. at Coweta.
