Majors drop pair in Nebraska

WAVERLY, Neb. —  Enid Majors’ trip to Nebraska didn’t get off to a good start Monday.

Waverly (Neb.) Dental swept a twinbill from coach Chris Jensen’s crew, winning the first game 5-4 on a passed ball in the seventh and the second game, 12-0 as Jesse Mog threw a one-hitter and struck out 10.

“I don’t think you can blame it on the bus ride (nine hours Sunday),’’ Jensen said. “They threw a good pitcher at us in the second game, and it was hard to bounce back after the first game.’’

The Majors (17-7) scored four runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game in the opener.

With two out, Claytin Beaver was hit by a pitch. Nate Williams followed with a single. Weston Ward tripled home pinch-runner Tabor Charles and Williams and scored on a double by Brady Kokojan. Rakestraw drove home Kokojan with his third hit of the game.

Waverly answered back in the bottom of the seventh, scoring the winning run on the strength of a walk, stolen base, single and a passed ball.

“That was a tough loss,’’ Jensen said. “Cody (reliever Daylor) was throwing 90 miles an hour and was working down in the zone. It was a tough pitch to handle. Those things happen. We did a great job coming back, we just didn’t finish.’’

Williams also had three hits for the Majors. Kokojan had two.

Waverly, in the second game, scored twice in the first, six times in the second and added four more runs in the fourth to go home early in the run-rule decision. Cole Floyd’s first-inning single was the lone hit off Mog.

“He was keeping off us balance with his curve and changeup,’’ Jensen said. “We hit a few balls hard, but right at people.’’

It was the first time the Majors had been shut out this season It was the most runs Enid had allowed in a game this season.

Jerry Kearney took the loss for the Majors.

The Majors spent Monday night at the College World Series.

They will play Dinsdale in an 11 a.m. doubleheader today, before going to the night session of the CWS.
