DURANT — One day after their bats generated a comeback win in Tulsa, the Pryor Tigers managed just one hit Saturday in an 8-0 high school baseball defeat at the hands of the Durant Lions.
The afternoon game, coming just 18 hours after Pryor defeated Collinsville, 6-4, saw junior lefthander Hunter Stephens put down the Tigers in a showdown of Top 10 Class 5A teams.
Stephens struck out seven as the No. 8-ranked Lions improved to 14-5. No. 5 Pryor is 13-7.
Durant scored once in the first and added two runs in each of the next two innings. The Lions added two more in the fifth and another in the sixth.
The Lions banged out 10 hits against three Tiger pitchers.
The Tigers’ Foster McCollough singled in the fifth, the lone hit off Stephens.
The Tigers continue on their road journey Tuesday, playing at Tulsa Hale.
