Jets walk to victory

Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s Logan Glasgow didn’t need a bat in the Jets’ 6-5 win over Connors State Monday night at David Allen Memorial Ballpark — just a walking stick.

Glasgow’s fourth walk of the game brought home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth as the Jets (26-14) bounced back after being swept by Murray State in their opening Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference series last weekend.

An NOC Enid basketball player shouted out “Walk-off Logan’’ in a kidding matter after Glasgow drew the walk off the Cowboys’ Armando Hernandez.

“I’ll take them how I can get them for sure,’’ Glasgow said. “I got the ball on the bat one time tonight, and I wasn’t very successful (ground out to shortstop). I’ll take it how I can get it.’’

It was an ideal ending for a game that featured the Jets drawing 12 walks and having four hit batsmen. NOC Enid pitchers gave up eight walks.

Glasgow said he never walked four times in a game before. NOC Enid coach Raydon Leaton said he’s probably seen his No. 9 hole hitter draw four walks sometime.

With one out in the NOC Enid ninth Blake Callaway drew a walk and went to third when Logan Bradley doubled off the left center field fall. Bradley had tied the game at 5-5 with a home run over the left field wall in the eighth.

Pinch-hitter Tyler Walker was intentionally walked to load the bases. Hernandez struck out pinch-hitter Tyler Wilkins, but walked Glasgow on a 3-1 pitch.

“He had been all over the place in that last inning,’’ Glasgow said. “I figured what is it going to hurt if he throws a strike on a 3-1 count. I might as well see what he can do here. The dugout got real loud in his head, so that put me in pretty good shape.’’

The Jets left 10 runners on base in the first eight innings, including the bases loaded in the sixth and eighth.

“It was a wild one,’’ Glasgow said, “but we needed that for sure after being in the loss column. We needed to get back on track and that was a good way to do it against a good team.’’

While the Jets pitchers walked eight and gave up eight hits, they were good under pressure. The Cowboys left 11 runners on base.

Tyler Lance, the last of seven pitchers used by Leaton, struck out two in one inning of work, including fanning pinch-hitter Jared Graham with the potential winning run on second in the ninth.

“We needed some momentum going into this weekend (series with Redlands Thursday and Sunday),’’ Leaton said. “We beat a good ballclub in a well-played game (only one error by both teams).

“We had some good at bats. We got a lot of pitchers work, and that’s what non-conference games are for, is to get some guys work. They all did a good job and held them in check.’’

NOC Enid had a 4-1 lead through six, scoring twice in the third and fifth.

Brandon Ruiz singled in Glasgow in the third and J.R. Head, who singled and went to third on Ruiz’s single, stole home on a perfectly executed double steal.

Glasgow walked and Head was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning. Christian Faulkner’s bases-loaded single scored Glasgow and Head scored on a sacrifice fly by Dusty Harper.

Head left the game with a bruised hand. Leaton said it was more for precaution and expects Head to play against Redlands.

The Cowboys tied the game in the seventh when Eli Roundtree hit a three-run homer after a pair of two-out walks.

Connors went ahead 5-4 on the strength of two walks, an error, two sacrifices and a ground out by Jacob Barton.

Bradley’s homer tied the game in the bottom half of the frame.

  • 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.
