PRYOR, OK — Pryor allowed two home runs to Springdale (Ark.) Har-Ber and the Wildcats left American Legion Memorial Park Friday with a 6-5 win.

Pryor (13-8) left men at second and third to end the game on a pair of strikeouts.

Har-Ber took a 6-4 lead on a Phillip Cebuhar home run in the fifth inning. His teammate Zack Stanley launched a three-run shot in the fourth inning to put the visitors up 5-4.

Pryor fell behind 2-0 after the first half-inning, but a Nate Wolfe RBI single scored Anthony Martinez.

Pryor added three runs in the third inning on a Spencer Henson double, an error and a passed ball to take a 4-2 lead.

Freshman Gaige Mendivil went five innings for the Tigers, allowing all six Wildcat runs. Wolfe relieved him and pitched two shutout innings.

Martinez did not record an at-bat in four plate appearances, but walked four times and scored three runs. His last run, off of a Wolfe double, gave Pryor hope in the bottom of the seventh inning.

With Wolfe and designated hitter Tyler Arnold camped in scoring position with one out, Paul Williamson fanned Nason Pace and Christian Campbell to end the game.

Wolfe went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a double. Henson had an RBI double.

Har-Ber traveled to Pryor to participate in the 4-State Baseball Festival, featuring teams from Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas (Kansas did not send a team). All games, aside from Pryor and Har-Ber, were scheduled in Claremore.
