‘Going, going, gone...’

Thomas’ 3-run HR lifts Sequoyah past Berryhill, 6-4

SEQUOYAH — A pair of Claremore Sequoyah sophomores — Erin Rogers and Mackenzie Thomas — turned in stellar performances Monday evening in the Lady Eagles’ 6-4 win over Berryhill.

Rogers, who tossed a complete game in the circle to notch the win, received strong run-support from her battery — Thomas — in the bottom of the third inning.

Thomas, who is receiving NCAA Division I interest from Texas Tech and Tulsa, needed only two pitches to put the Lady Eagles ahead 5-0.

With one out and looking at 1-0 count, Thomas smashed the next pitch from the Berryhill hurler deep over the left-field wall for a three-run homer that quickly swung the momentum in favor of the Lady Eagles.

The three-run blast was her second in her varsity career and the first of the season.

Sequoyah jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom half of the first inning with McKenna McGill’s leadoff single igniting the offensive charge.

McGill stole second base and then scooted around third and home plate on Katy Remy’s RBI-double just off the left-field wall.

Rogers, who skipped her freshman season of softball to play volleyball, returned to the diamond this season and gained a lot of confidence from her teammates Monday with her solid outing in the circle.

Sequoyah gave the young pitcher a 6-0 lead in the third inning on Amanda Chancellor’s RBI-double and Thomas’ three-run blast.

Lauren Shockley also recorded a RBI-single to center field to score Sydney Blue, who reached on a single.

Berryhill’s offense couldn’t master Rogers’ pitching until the top of the sixth inning.

A pair of fielding errors led and a grand slam with one out pulled Berryhill within two runs at 6-4 in the top of the sixth.

Rogers overcame a single in the top of the seventh inning and then relied on her defense to close the door for her first varsity win.

Rogers allowed four runs on five hits with five walks.

Offensively, Thomas paced the Lady Eagles with a 2-for-3 outing, collecting a three-run homer and a single to left field in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Remy also contributed with a 3-for-4 performance, hitting a RBI-double and a pair of singles.

The Lady Eagles (6-4) return to action at 4 p.m. on Sept. 3 in a Rogers County showdown against the Inola Lady Longhorns. The junior high and JV will also play on Tuesday at Inola.
