BASEBALL: Howe’s RBI-double rallies Zebras past Vinita

CLAREMORE — Claremore senior designated hitter Bryce Howe delivered an RBI-double in the bottom of the fifth inning that helped rally the Zebras to a 6-3 win over Vinita in the 4-State Festival Friday night at American Legion Park.

Howe, who smashed a fifth-inning grand slam Thursday afternoon in Claremore’s 9-0 win over Tulsa Memorial, continued his hot streak at the plate with his one-out double to left field that plate Claremore senior catcher Matt Whatley for the go-ahead run that put the Zebras up 4-3.

Since returning to the Claremore lineup from back injury, Howe has been unstoppable at the plate, going 9-for-16 with two home runs, three doubles and four singles.

Claremore took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on Cameron Smith’s sacrifice fly to right-center field that scored freshman outfielder Jeff Oxford, who reached on a single to left field.

Vinita answered in the top of the third inning with two runs off Claremore freshman pitcher Dustin Weiesnbach to make it 2-1.

Smith’s sacrifice fly to right field in the bottom of the third scored Whatley, who reached on a leadoff walk, to tie the game at 2-2.

In the top of the fifth, Vinita gained the 3-2 lead with a double.

Claremore’s fifth inning, however, proved to be the difference as the Zebras scored four runs on four hits.

Claremore junior outfielder Spencer Walden’s leadoff bunt single got the Zebras rolling, and then Howe’s RBI-double as well as T.J. Wood’s RBI-single and Weiesnbach’s RBI-double put Claremore up 6-3.

Weiesnbach earned the win, and Howe secured the save for Claremore.

Howe tossed two innings with one strikeout and three walks.
