Pryor takes advantage of Claremore errors for 8-2 win

PRYOR — Claremore committed four costly errors that led to Pryor pulling away with an 8-2 win Thursday evening in the Tiger Summer Classic at American Legion Park.

The Tigers, which rode the starting pitching of Anthony Martinez for five innings, took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second without a hit.

Claremore’s defense — primarily built around incoming freshmen and sophomores — booted a couple of infield singles that Pryor turned into scoring opportunities.

Brennon Barth reached first in the second after an infield hit caromed the glove of Claremore second baseman Kyle Chancellor. Barth stole second and then reached third on the wild pitch from Britton Yoder.

Tyler Arnold, however, plated Barth with the sacrifice groundout to Claremore shortstop Dustin Weiesnbach for the 1-0 lead.

After Yoder hit Conley Ledoux and loaded the bases with back-to-back walks, Ledoux increased Pryor’s lead to 2-0 on a hit by pitch to Martinez.

Claremore’s offense couldn’t generate a hit off Martinez through the first four innings, despite trailing 3-0.

Pryor’s Spencer Henson made it 3-0 in the bottom of the third after reaching first on the walk and then scoring on the fielding error by Claremore third baseman (Britton) Yoder.

In the bottom of the fourth, Pryor continued its scoring spree with a 2-out RBI-double that plated Ledoux, who led off the inning with a single to right field.

The clutch double put Pryor ahead 4-0.

Claremore’s offense finally got on the scoreboard in the top of the fifth inning as Nick Dotson led off with a single to left field and later scored on Brady Brim’s infield hit that was misplayed by the Pryor second baseman.

Trailing 4-1, Bryson Vanover ripped a RBI-double to left-center field that scored Brim and narrowed the deficit to 4-2.

Pryor, meanwhile, tallied the remaining four runs in the bottom of the sixth off relievers Noah Grimett and Chris Dotson.

Claremore (2-2) closed out the tournament Saturday against Baxter Springs.

The Zebras return to action on Monday in a doubleheader against Pryor at 5:30 p.m. at Legendary Legion Field. The second game will start at approximately 7:30 p.m.
