BASEBALL: McGill’s seventh-inning hit propels Sequoyah past Sallisaw

SEQUOYAH — Logan McGill’s bases loaded ground ball with one out in the bottom of the seventh scored McKaine Foster, giving Sequoyah a 5-4 victory over Sallisaw Friday evening in the 4-State Baseball Festival.

Playing at home, the Eagles needed just five hits to beat the Black Diamonds. The visitors piled up nine, but not enough to finish a rally started in the top half of the seventh.

In the deciding frame, Foster drove a base knock to left and reached second when Jeff Harrison’s grounder was bobbled at short. Reese Robinette walked, setting up McGill’s bouncing ball. Sallisaw second baseman Derek Harris knocked it down, got up and fired to catcher Cooper Carr, but Foster beat Carr to the plate to win the game.

Sequoyah was sailing along with a 4-1 lead until the sixth inning, then starter J.J. Filby walked Chase Long and Long took second on a passed ball. On a hit and run play, starting pitcher Grant Harrison cranked a single to score Long and cut the Eagles lead to two.

The recharged Black Diamonds finally tied the game 4-4 in the seventh. Theron Merrill drew a walk off Filby, then Blayke Haggard singled. Logan Tacker replaced Filby on the mound and Harris doubled to left field, driving home both Merrill and Haggard.

Sequoyah erased a 1-0 deficit with a three-run third inning and added one more in the fourth. With the bags full in the third, Tacker earned a walk from Harrison that plated Filby for a 1-1 knot. Benny Sandecki’s sacrifice fly drove in Tanner Helm and Levi Lewis made it 3-1 by scoring on a Sallisaw error.

In the fourth, Filby walked and ran home when Helm doubled down the left field line.

The Eagles returned to action Saturday afternoon in the 4-State Festival against Glendale (Mo.), who suffered a 14-3 loss to Salina Friday at Claremore’s American Legion Park.

Sequoyah will continue Will Rogers Conference play on Monday at Dewey.
