Schivally crushes HR, Claremore falls to Owasso, 9-2

OWASSO — With one swing of the bat, Owasso first baseman Emily Bevan changed the outcome of Tuesday’s Frontier Conference game against the Claremore Lady Zebras.

Bevan hammered two homers, including a 2-run blast in the bottom of the third inning, to spark the Lady Rams past Claremore, 9-2.

Up until the third inning, Claremore led Owasso, 1-0 thanks to Stephanie Schivally’s solo-homer with a full count in the top of the second inning.

The homerun was Schivally’s second of the season — her first coming over the Labor Day weekend in Colorado.

With Claremore maintaining its 1-0 lead, the Lady Rams offense caught fire in the third inning with their 1-2-3 hitters accounting for three runs on a double, 2-run homer and a solo homer off Lady Zebras pitcher Ally Johnson.

Hannah Stirton led off with the double, followed by Bevan’s 2-run homer and Nicole Nease’s solo homer to make it 3-1.

Owasso added it to the lead in the bottom of the fifth with Makayla Waggoner driving in Whitney Whitecotton on the line-drive off the glove of Claremore third baseman Hailey Seago to put the Lady Rams ahead 4-1.

Owasso continued its explosion with a five-run sixth on five hits, including Bevan’s 3-run homer over the left-field wall that extended the Lady Rams’ lead to 9-1.

Stirton, Nease, Whitecotton and Brooke Curtis also tallied singles in the sixth.

In the top of the seventh, Schivally reached on the hit by pitch and scored Claremore’s second run on Johnson’s RBI-single to right-center field.
