After suffering a tough 3-2 loss to rival Pryor on Monday, Claremore softball closed the week with a pair of impressive road wins.
The Lady Zebras first dispatched of Edison 15-0 on Tuesday before blasting Sapulpa 10-4 two days later. Here is a recap of those games:
Pryor 3, Claremore 2: The Lady Zebras led 2-1 entering the seventh, but Pryor scored two late runs to steal the victory.
Gracyn Rains singled in Kayda Wolfe with a line drive to left field, and a bases-loaded walk five pitches later gave the Tigerettes the game-winning run.
Pryor scored first on an error in the third, but Claremore eventually responded and took a 2-1 lead in the fourth after Halle Bucktrot notched a 2-RBI single to right field, scoring Julia Hoffman and Emily Rogers. Maddox Thomas led the team at the plate with two hits.
Brooklynn Stohler earned the win in the circle for Pryor, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out 11 through seven innings.
Vivian Scuggins took the loss after going two innings and allowing two runs on one hit.
Jazmine Cookson started the game, though, and lasted five innings before Scuggins’ entrance. She allowed one run on eight hits, striking out one and walking one.
Claremore 15, Edison 0: Rogers and Thomas both hit doubles as the Lady Zebras put Edison away in three innings.
Every frame was ended early to prevent the score from getting too out of hand. Claremore scored five runs in each of the innings.
Jadyn Muns accounted for two of the Lady Zebras’ hits while also driving in two runs. Hoffman and Rogers co-led the team in RBIs with three apiece, and Thomas finished with two alongside Muns.
Scuggins was credited with the win, tossing five strikeouts while allowing no hits and a walk through 1.2 innings. Toney Gibson also saw time in the circle.
Claremore 10, Sapulpa 4: Claremore tallied four runs in the first inning alone, and the Lady Chieftains never could recover.
After Rogers singled in Paiten Reavis, two Lady Zebras scored on the same error, and Rogers followed shortly after on a passed ball.
The next three runs came via two groundouts and a sacrifice fly, and Hoffman then made it 8-0 with a single to center field, scoring Weaver.
The final two runs came in the fifth on consecutive hits from Reavis and Thomas, with the former hitting a triple and the latter managing a single. Reavis finished with a game-high three hits while Weaver and Abbey Hagen were close behind with two.
Scuggins claimed her second victory of the week, this time striking out two while allowing six hits and seven walks on 114 pitches through a full seven innings.
