Baseball roundup: Coweta hands Pryor first loss

COWETA, OK — Coweta handed Pryor its first loss of the season, a 3-2 setback, in Coweta Tuesday.

Pryor (3-1, 2-1 district) cooled off considerably after a blazing start to the year, especially sophomore Spencer Henson. Henson (0-1) blew a save and went 0-for-2 from the plate.

Coweta grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth before Pryor responded with a pair of runs in the fifth.

Sophomore Anthony Martinez got the start on the mound and allowed one run in five innings of work, striking out nine and allowing three hits.

Senior Nate Wolfe went 2-for-2 with a double and a stolen base.

Coweta will travel to Pryor today for a 5 p.m. first pitch. The Tigers will host Vinita at 4:30 p.m. Friday before their annual spring break trip to Pensacola, Fla. to play in the Aggie Classic.

In a Monday makeup game, the Tigers romped past Fort Gibson, 7-2, in Pryor.

Henson went 3-for-3 and hit his second home run of the season.

Freshman Gaige Mendivil (1-0) picked up his first win on the mound in a five-inning outing, and Bradley Nixon earned a save by striking out three batters in two innings of work. Nixon also went 3-for-3 at the plate.

Chouteau edges Oaks for 3-0 start

OAKS — Daniel Mynahan threw a complete game, Tylar Blalock hit his second home run of the year and Chouteau is out to its best start in some time after a 4-3 win over Oaks-Mission Tuesday.

Mynahan (1-0) struck out 11 batters for the 3-0 Wildcats in seven innings of work. "It was a well-pitched game," CHS head coach Matt Tramel said.

Blalock's solo shot in the seventh inning broke a 3-3 tie after Oaks plated three runs in the bottom of the sixth off of three Chouteau errors.

Blalock went 4-for-4 with 3 RBIs Tuesday and is batting .900 through three games. "He's our offensive leader," Tramel said.

Chouteau got off to a fast start Monday, plastering Arkoma with a pair of run-rule losses in a home doubleheader.

The Wildcats were led by freshman Trevor Sissey's in the first game, a 10-0 decision. The Wildcats took the second game, 14-2.

Adam Snyder went 4-for-4 with seven RBIs, including an inside-the-park home run, on the day
