Olazagasti (#12) swings at a Chickasha pitch in the scoreless first inning Wednesday
May 13th at Broken's Arrow's baseball diamond with his Collinsville teammates
watching from the "home" dugout.
Rogers (#16) started on the mound for Collinsville against Chickasha. The same
Broken Arrow mound was apparently used by major leaguer Brad Penny.
baseman Bobby Shoate (#8) drifted into foul territory for this 2nd inning Chickasha
pop up out. I didn't get a photo but Bobby pulled off a nifty double play in the
3rd snagging a foul line drive and diving to tag 1st base before the runner on
first base could tag.
3rd inning pick off attempt went sour as the Chickasha base runner collided with
the Cardinal defender and the ball continued into center field. A hit followed
putting Chickasha up by 2 in the 3rd.
baseman Peter Rodriguez (#13) nearly held on to this high liner but still managed
to throw out the runner at first after the ball dropped to end the 3rd inning.
swinging miss on a 3rd strike proved an effective offensive play several times
for both Collinsville and Chickasha. Collinsville scored their first run in the
4th inning (above) with Riley Murr sliding home safely after what would have been
a Rodriguez strikeout got past the catcher. Lane Coulter scored on the next play
on a Nick Goza double to even the score at 2-2.
had the bases loaded and no outs to start the 4th. Randy Rogers got one strikeout
and Peter Rodriguez (#13) came in to pitch for another 2 strikeouts to keep the
Cards close at 0-2.
Rodriguez repeated the swinging 3rd stike miss getting away from the catcher in
the 5th inning scoring Lane Coulter to bring the score to 4-5. A Nick Goza RBI
single then tied the game at 5-5.
made one of their pitching changes after Collinsville evened the game in the 5th
with 2 outs and the bases still loaded. Bobby Shoate (#8) was on 3rd base as Coach
Tony Reeder approached Trevor Rabbitt (#11) with advise. Rabbitt hit a liner to
center but Chickasha fielded to stop the Cardinal rally.
Werdell (#4) pitched the 6th inning with Chickasha picking up 3 unanswered runs.
Dejesus (#9) went high to save this throw from second base but the runner got
back to 3rd safely in the 6th inning.
Keith (#1) running for Jordan Pasquale (who had reached 1st on a dropped 3rd strike)
reached 3rd base in the 6th inning but was left stranded.
Newland (#17 above) started the 7th for the Cards but gave up the final 2 Chickasha
runs before Matt Lister (#14 below) came in for the 2 final outs. Collinsville
loaded the bases in their half of the 7th (on singles by Shoate, Rogers &
Dejesus) but couldn't plate a run losing 5-10 setting up the 2nd game about 30
cound not attend the Thursday game with Bishop Kelly eliminating Collinsville
4-9 .. leaving Chickasha and BK to decide the 5A title.|
fielder Lane Coulter is still a young man, but despite the "Lane To Age"
sign (acutally a "Lynn Lane Storage" sign), I suspect the coaches "aged"
a bit more this past week trying to host a rained-out regional and then the challenges
of state competition. -- Ted
