NOC Enid eyes revenge against Cowley

ENID, Okla. —

Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s baseball team (3-12) will be out to avenge last week’s 13-11 loss to Cowley County (Kan.) in a single nine-inning game at 3 p.m. today at Arkansas City, Kan.

The Cowboys had 14 hits in the game but took advantage of 12 walks, two hit  batsmen and four wild pitches. Matt Anderson was 3-for-4 with four RBI. Cory Linn was 2-for-4 with four RBI.

Korbin Polston had three RBI for the Jets while Aaron McCandless was 2-for-4 with three runs scored and an RBI.

“They had eight runs on four hits at one point,’’ said NOC Enid coach Raydon Leaton. “That’s backward where it should be. We need to get that under control.’’

Jets pitchers have struck out 99 batters in 108 innings, but have walked 88.

“From the coaches I’ve been talking to, that’s about the norm for everybody,’’ Leaton said. “The weather has had a big part of it. It’s more like February 1 now instead of March 10. Once we get on the field consistently, things will take care of itself.’’

The Jets will start either Timberlake freshman Stetson Buller (1-1, 6.43 ERA) or Zach Bradford (0-2, 5.28) against the Cowboys.

NOC Enid is hitting .246 as a team and has a fielding percentage of .923 with 39 errors in 15 games.

“If we put all three of the game together, we can beat anybody,’’ Leaton said. “We haven’t done that yet, but we have to keep a positive attitude. We still have 40 games left; there’s a lot of baseball to be played. A lot can happen between now and May.’’

NOC Enid’s scheduled game Tuesday  at Butler (Kan.) Community College has been rescheduled for March 18.

The Jets will travel to Rose State for a doubleheader Thursday and will host the Raiders in a 1 p.m. doubleheader Saturday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.

Polston leads the NOC Enid attack with a .395 average with two homers and 14 RBI.

He is followed by Chase Knott (.356, 11 RBI), McCandless (.320, 10 RBI) and Sammy Terry (.305, 12 RBI).ğ
