Jets shot down at Redlands

EL RENO, Okla. — Northern Oklahoma College Enid came up on the wrong end of both games of a doubleheader Saturday, falling 6-2 and 8-2 at Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference rival Redlands.

Zac Postoak pitched a complete game in the opener, but it wasn’t enough as he also surrendered a pair of home runs.

The home-standing Cougars never trailed in the contest after jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning on Aaron Falgoust’s two-run home run that put Redlands up for good.

NOC Enid battled back with a run in the top of the third inning. Aaron McCandless led off the inning with a double and scored one batter later when Redland’s shortstop committed an error on a ground ball from Korbin Polston to make it 2-1.

Redlands blew the game open in the bottom of third inning with four runs, highlighted by a two-run home run from Alex Harris.

The Jets added a single run in the sixth inning when Sammy Terry scored on a throwing error. Terry had reached base to start the inning after getting hit by a pitch.

Postoak finished with eight strikeouts and only one walk along with six earned runs.

“He pitched a good game,” said NOC Enid assistant coach Scott Mansfield. “He made three bad pitches and they (Redlands) made him pay for it. They’re a good hitting club.”

In the nightcapt, Harris continued his torrid hitting from the opener leading the Cougars’ 10-hit attack with his second home run of the day — a solo shot in the sixth inning that provided Redlands’ final run — as well as a double and four RBI.

The Jets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning when T.J. Turner led off the game with a triple and came home on Chase Knott’s RBI single. NOC Enid notched its second run when Aaron McCandless, who had reached base on a walk, scored on a double play.

Redlands answered with a run in the bottom of the first and then scored four runs in the second inning as they took a 5-2 lead and never looked back, adding two more runs in the fifth and one in the sixth on Harris’ solo home run for the 8-2 final.

Jets starter Hayden James (2-4) lasted only two innings in taking the loss. He struck out four and walked four, while allowing only one earned run. The Jets committed three errors.

Turner led the Jets’ 6-hit attack with two hits.

“It was a tough day,” Mansfield said. “We didn’t hit well and didn’t play defense well and the pitching was just OK.”

The Jets (7-30) return home Monday to David Allen Memorial Ballpark against Redlands for another twinbill in the home-and-home series.
