Enid splits at tournament

EDMOND, Okla. — Cole Floyd threw five innings of one-hit relief and went three-for-four at the plate as Enid came back from a 5-0 deficit to defeat El Reno 9-5 at the Edmond Baseball Classic on Thursday.

Southmoore scored three runs in the top of the eighth to deny the Plainsmen a 2-0 start in the Classic, defeating Enid 10-7 in the second game.

“We swung the bats real well today,’’ said Enid assistant coach Butch Lingenfelter about the Plainsmen attack, which produced 14 hits in the first game and 11 hits in the second. “We felt we had a pretty good day overall.’’

Floyd came in to pitch in the third inning of the first game to shut down the Indians, who scored five runs the first, but we held down the rest of the way. Floyd struck out eight and walked three.

“Cole Floyd was dominant on the mound,’’ Lingenfelter said.

Floyd, Tanner Lingenfelter and Christian Voitik all went three-for-four against El Reno. Floyd scored Enid’s first run in the fifth when he doubled and scored on a Bobby Russell ground out.

EHS added eight runs in the sixth on an RBI double by Lingenfelter, a two-RBI single by Tanner Fore, RBI singles by Childs, Russell and Voitik and a two-RBI double by Tanner Black.winning pitcher Davis Usselt

“We had our chances to win,’’ said Lingenfelter.’’
