NOC Enid splits pair against Pratt

PRATT, Kan. — No. 10-ranked Northern Oklahoma College Enid showed some rust in splitting a doubleheader with Pratt, Kan., Community College, losing the first game, 4-1, before breaking out in the second, 8-5.

It was NOC Enid’s first action since sweeping Southeast Nebraska March 20. The Jets had taken four days off before practicing Sunday and Monday.

The Jets had only five hits in the opener. Pratt pitchers had seven strikeouts.

The second game was different with NOC Enid scoring five runs in the first and holding off a late Beavers rally.

“We came out a little flat in the first game,’’ said Jets assistant coach Scott Mansfield. “We had a good turnaround in the second game. We had a good approach, swung the bats well and put them down early.’’

Davis Bradley led the Jets attack with three RBI. Logan Bradley was 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Brandon Ruiz was 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

J.R. Head, Christian Faulkner, Blake Callaway and Dusty Harper also scored for the Jets, who added a run in the third and two in the fifth.

Justin Sheets raised his record to 5-1. He allowed seven hits and three earned runs over five innings. He struck out two and did not walk a batter.

Pratt scored a run in the third, and four in the fifth. Skylar Angood had three RBI, including a triple for the Beavers, now 15-13.

Zac Postoak allowed only one hit and struck out two in a strong two-inning relief stint to get the save.

“Justin threw well,’’ Mansfield said. “We started off with two errors, and then they had some timely hitting to knock him out. Zac came in and threw strikes and got outs.’’

The Jets, in the opener, scored a run in the first with Logan Bradley driving in J.R. Head. NOC Enid was shut down the rest of the game.

Garrett Kelly (3-1) took his first loss of the season for the Jets. He allowed nine hits and four runs over five innings. He struck out six and did not walk a batter.

Pratt scored three runs in the first, and another in the second.

Angood had two RBI to lead the Beavers attack. Only one Pratt starter didn’t get a hit. Jordan Jenkins was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Aaron Stubblefield was 2-for-3.

“Kelly went out and threw strikes,’’ Mansfield said. “When he throws strikes, sometimes he’s going to get hit. You have to give credit where credit is due here. They hit the ball well.’’

The split dropped the Jets record to 23-8. They will visit Connors at 6:30 p.m. Thursday before hosting Rose State College in a 1 p.m. doubleheader Saturday at Failing Park.

Jonathan Johnson is scheduled to pitch for the Jets against Connors, a long-time Division I power.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
