Adair breaks 6th-inning tie to dump LG

ADAIR, OK — Bubba Kerr hit the go-ahead RBI-double for Adair in the bottom of the sixth inning to help the Warriors trip Locust Grove at home, 5-3, Saturday morning.

The Warriors (9-8) overcame plenty of distractions and personnel switches to earn their third win in their last four games.

“Our main focus is to just go play hard,” Adair head coach Chell Looney said. “If we go play hard, everything will take care of itself.”

The game was moved up an hour to a 10 a.m. start to accommodate preparations for the Adair High School prom, and both teams played without players who were gone taking the ACT standardized test.

Adair hurler Tayler Conseen (3-2) struck out eight Pirates in a complete seven-inning performance.

“When he throws well and gets ahead of batters, he's really tough,” Looney said. “We had to pitch from behind a lot today. Today he was a little off, but he was good enough to overcome it and get us a win.”

Catcher Alec Brand got the Warriors on the board first in the bottom of the first inning with an RBI single to score lead-off batter Cody Eby.

The Pirates (4-14) struck back to tie the game at 1 in the top of the third on a Bradley Fields single, scoring Daniel Woodruff.

Adair added two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Cody Yoder and Conseen each batted in runners on singles to push the lead to 3-1.

LG responded in the top of the sixth. Brock Taylor's base-hit scored Brayden Littledave, and Jaren Dirtseller's two-out double plated Taylor to score the tying run.

Adair wasted no time in the bottom of the sixth, as Conseen singled and moved to second on an error. Kerr looped a double to score Conseen, and Matt Skelton batted into a fielder's choice to score first-baseman Justin McCollum.

Brock Taylor flied out to center with two men on to end the game.

Adair's game at Verdigris Monday was canceled due to inclement weather. The Warriors dropped a 10-7 decision to Ketchum Friday.

LG and Vinita also canceled their Monday game, set to be played in Locust Grove.
