Trojans sweep Jets

ALVA, Okla. — Staff reports

ALVA — The learning curve for Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s baseball team continued Friday as the Jets were swept by Colby County (Kan.).

The Trojans scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh to win the opener, 2-1 and had nine hits to go with three NOC Enid errors, four walks and four wild pitches to win the second game, 10-2.

The losses dropped the Jets to 1-5, going into a 1 p.m. doubleheader today with No. 5-ranked Des Moines (Iowa) Area Community College.

Zac Postoak and Hayden James are scheduled to pitch for the Jets, who took two out of three games from Des Moines last season.

“We had some guys who had some good at bats and we turned some double plays,’’ said Jets coach Raydon Leaton about the Colby twinbill. “We did some things right, we just didn’t do enough things right.’’

Colby Izaaks scored the winning run in the first game when he singled, stole second and scored on a throwing error on a bunt.

Both teams had scored in the second with the Trojans scoring an unearned run set up by two errors and the Jets on a triple by Korbin Polston and a single by Haden Johnson.

“We had a chance to win Game 1,’’ Leaton said. “We just let a lot of opportunities slip through and it came back to bite us.’’

Dyce Applegate went two-for-three for he Jets.

Starting pitcher Zac Bradford allowed only three hits over five innings but walked six. He struck out two. Reliever Kent Callison took the loss.

Izaaks went 3-for-3 and scored twice for the Trojans in the second game. Colby scored five runs in the second, one in the third and four in the fourth.

Sammy Terry and Polston had doubles for NOC Enid. Polston and Aaron McCandless scored the two runs. Terry had NOC Enid’s lone RBI. Starting pitcher Stetson Buller of Timberlake allowed five hits over three innings. He allowed six runs, only one of which was earned. He struck out three and walked two.

“We just kicked the ball around in Game two,’’ Leaton said. “We had a lot of wild pitches (4) and just didn’t play very well.’’

Des Moines is coming off back-to-back trips to the Division II World Series.

“Hopefully, we can take care of ourselves and be competitive a little bit,’’ Leaton said. “It’s always a good series when we play against each other.’’

  • 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.
