Sequoyah gave itself an opportunity to avenge Monday’s eight-run loss to Wagoner, but the Bulldogs were just a little too good at the plate.
Wagoner responded to Trey Burks’ game-tying double in the sixth with a two-run home run and an RBI double in the bottom of the seventh before scoring another on an error, escaping with a 10-6 win in District 4A-6 action Tuesday night.
Darius McNack notched the game-winning homer, and Zane Cory registered the double two at-bats later before scoring the final run on an error. Cory also got the win on the mound, allowing two hits and two runs with no walks on 31 pitches through two innings.
Trey Wood pitched five innings before Cory entered, striking out six while surrending six hits, four runs and a walk on 82 pitches.
The Eagles (1-11, 0-4 4A-6) took an early 2-0 lead on an Nathan Dorsey groundout and a Preston Patterson single, but the Bulldogs eventually evened the score with two runs on the same error in the second inning.
Wagoner then added four more runs in the fourth on a pair of singles from Bristo Love and McNack, putting Sequoyah in a 6-2 hole.
The Eagles wouldn’t go down easily, though.
Brett Burks ended their scoring drought when he scored his brother Trey with a line-drive double to center field in the fifth, and Dorsey drove in the former two pitches later with a single.
Trey Burks completed the comeback in the sixth, scoring Jesse Razor and Jagger Dunfee on a double to centerfield, but Sequoyah failed to capitalize after that momentous hit. Both Burks finished with two hits to lead the team.
Brett Burks took the loss for the Eagles, tallying two strikeouts while allowing two hits, four runs and three walks on 46 pitches through two innings. Trey Burks saw time on the mound as well, registering three strikeouts despite surrendering four hits, six runs and two walks on 74 pitches through 3.2 innings.
Sequoyah looks to end its 11-game losing streak when it hosts Class 5A’s Tahlequah at 1 p.m. Friday.
