Majors bounce back in tournament

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. — Drummond’s Brady Kokojan was the clutch reliever in the Enid Majors’ 7-5 win over the Southwest Shockers at the Oklahoma Outlaws Memorial Day Tournament Saturday.

Kokojan was called on to pitch in the top of the seventh with the Shockers having runners on second and third. He struck out the batter to end the game, raising Enid’s record to 1-1 in pool play.

“He came in and shut things down,’’ said Majors coach Chris Jensen.

Silvano Tarango drove in three runs — two on a double in the second and an RBI single scoring Brandon Rakestraw in the sixth, which proved to be the winning run.

Tarango scored later in the inning on a double by Bradley Kinsey.

“Silvano came home hustling,’’ Jensen said. “He turned a single into a double. He got some big hits and made some nice plays at second base.

Nate Williams was 3-for-3 with two runs scored and a stolen base. Cole Floyd singled in Williams and Kinsey in the first to give the Majors a 2-0 lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Williams scored in the fifth when he doubled and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Enid starter Jerry Kearney went 31⁄3 innings, allowing four hits and two earned runs, while walking five and striking out one. Jordan Langton, in 12⁄3 innings, allowed three hits and one earned run, while striking out one and walking three.

Junior Obesco, who preceded Kokojan to the mound, struck out five and did not walk a batter in 21⁄3 innings. He allowed two hits and two runs. Neither team committed an error.

“It was a well-played game by both sides,’’ Jensen said. “I was impressed with how the guys responded after we lost last night (to Woodward Travelers).’’

The Majors (3-1) was playing Putnam City North late Saturday in pool play. Enid is scheduled to play Bethany at 1:30 p.m. today.

  • Bruce Campbell.jpg Time will tell if OU made right choice about receiver

    Some have said Green-Beckham doesn’t deserve another chance, at least at another Division I school.
    Others say this is a low-risk, high-potential move by the Sooners, citing Green-Beckham will be on a short leash and it gives OU another experienced and big- play receiver to compliment Sterling Shepard.
