In extra innings, Salina hikes streak to 8

— SALINA— Ty Stewart's single drove in the winning run Tuesday as the Salina Wildcats defeated the Ketchum Warriors, 2-1, in eight innings.

For the second straight day, the Wildcats won a high school baseball game between ranked teams in extra innings. The Wildcats (8-1) are ranked seventh in Class 3A while Ketchum is No. 8 in 2A.

The Wildcats, despite extending their winning streak to eight games, slipped in the poll following Monday’s 2-1 win over Fort Gibson. Salina already owned a 1-0 victory over Ketchum.

To open the Salina eighth, Brett Kerns and Brett Fite walked. Stewart followed with his hit, scoring Kerns.

Salina senior Jake Johnson limited the Warriors to one hit, striking out six. The Warriors  took a 1-0 lead in the third. Lucien Littledave scored at that point, tying the game and setting the stage for Stewart’s heroics.

Johnson followed with the one-out single to center that scored Littledave.
