Tigers rip Buffs in district showdown

PRYOR, OK — Pryor doubled its way to 12-5 win over McAlester Friday on Alumni Night at American Legion Memorial Field.

The Tigers (14-10, 8-2 District 5A-4) poured in five runs in a torrid first inning and doubled three times to open the second inning to take control and cruise past the visiting Buffaloes.

McAlester (13-12, 8-1 5A-4) suffered its first district loss of the season but still leads Pryor by one game in the loss column for second place. Both teams must still play a home-and-home with district leader Shawnee.

Pryor needed the win to stay in the race for a home regional, and got solid at-bats from every spot in the lineup to do just that.

Sophomore shortstop and lead-off hitter Anthony Martinez led the way for the Tigers, hitting 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and an RBI.

Senior Nate Wolfe had a 3-for-4 day at the plate with a double and a two-RBI single, and Spencer Henson doubled twice and batted in three runs.

Wolfe pitched three innings and gave up a two-run home run in the top of the first inning, but the Tigers rebounded to get him the win.

Conley Ledoux relieved Wolfe in the fourth inning and threw four scoreless innings.

McAlester 5, Pryor 4 (Thursday)

McALESTER — McAlester broke a tie game in the bottom of the seventh inning to claim a 5-4 district win over Pryor Thursday.

Pryor erased a 3-0 deficit in the top of the third inning, helped by a two-RBI single from Bradley Nixon.

The Buffaloes knotted the score at 4-all in the bottom of the fifth before walking off in the seventh.

Anthony Martinez started and threw five innings of a no-decision, striking out four Buffs and walking six. Gaige Mendivil allowed the winning run and absorbed the loss.

Spencer Henson went 2-for-3 at the plate and scored a run.
