ENID, Okla. —
The Enid Minors used solid pitching performances by Ty Golay and Bates Enmeier to sweep a doubleheader from the Southwest Shockers in Les Beckham League action at David Allen Memorial Ballpark Monday.
Golay threw a six-hitter in going the distance in a 7-3 Minors win in the opener. He struck out five and walked five.
Enmeier allowed only five hits in going the distance as the Minors won the nightcap 2-1. He struck out four and did not walk a batter. His defense did not commit an error behind him.
The sweep raised Enid’s record to 15-19 overall and 6-3 in league action.
“Ty Golay and Bates Enmeier were dominant tonight,’’ said Minors coach Seth Sturgeon. “They threw a lot of first-pitch strikes and challenged the hitters. They got a lot of fly ball outs and ground outs.
“The last three games we have gotten good pitching, played good defense and got timely hitting. When do do all three of those, you’re going to win some ballgames.’’
Braden Rogers had two RBI in the first game for the Minors. Hunter Childs reached base in all four of his at bats with a single, two walks and being hit by a pitch.
Matt Mills singled in the tying run in the nightcap in the sixth. The winning run came on a successful double steal.
The Minors will be back in action Wednesday when they host Ponca City in a 6 p.m. doubleheader at David Allen. Enid will face the Woodward Minors at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Woodward Travelers Fourth of July Festival.
