Baseball roundup: Pryor dispatches Coweta

BETHANY, OK — Pryor earned a season split with Coweta Thursday, slapping the visiting Tigers with an 8-2 loss.

Coweta took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning, but Pryor (4-1, 3-1 district) took the lead for good in the bottom of the third, 3-2. A four-run fifth cemented the Pryor win.

Bradley Nixon relieved Conley Ledoux (2-0) after four innings and allowed just one hit.

Senior Nate Wolfe went 2-for-4 from the plate with a double and a pair of runs. Designated hitter Zach Castleberry went 2-for-3, and junior centerfielder Brennon Barth went 1-for-3 and batted in a pair of runs.

Pryor was slated to play Vinita at home Friday, but no score was available at press time.

Chouteau's Blaylock stays red hot

HULBERT -- Chouteau junior Tyler Blaylock continued his solar-powered hitting streak Thursday, falling a triple shy of the cycle in a 13-6 Wildcats win at Hulbert.

"He comes in every morning before school and he's always the last to leave the cage," Matt Tramel, who has yet to lose a game as the Wildcat head coach, said.

Blaylock went 3-for-3 (a single, a double and a home run) with six RBIs, overshadowing his teammate Conner Darnell, who smacked a grand slam in the fourth inning and was also the winning pitcher. Darnell went 2-for-3 with four RBIs.

Chouteau (4-0) will stay home Saturday for a pair of games with Class B Bluejacket. The first pitch is at noon.

Locust Grove snaps losing streak

WYANDOTTE -- Locust Grove topped Wyandotte 7-2 Friday to earn its first win of the season.

The Pirates (1-3) were in a three-game skid dating back to their season opener against Salina.

On Thursday, Locust Grove fell at home against 3A's No. 15 Kansas, 11-1.

The Comets were the third top-20 foe the Pirates faced to open the season. LG will host 4A's No. 12 Oologah Monday before traveling to 4A No. 15 Hilldale Friday, March 21.
