Plainsmen drop two at Classic

EDMOND, Okla. — An Enid comeback fell just short as the Plainsmen fell to Midwest City 5-4 in their first game of the Edmond Baseball Classic Friday.

The second game wasn’t much of a classic for EHS, which fell to Edmond North 17-6. The Huskies jumped on the Plainsmen for seven runs in the first  and four in the second to take an 11-0 lead.

The two losses dropped the Plainsmen to 10-21 for the season. EHS plays at 12:30 p.m. today against Moore in the wrap-up of the three-day tournament. The game can be heard on KCRC (1390 AM)

“We were pretty competitive the first game,’’ said Plainsmen assistant coach Butch Lingenfelter. “In the second game, you just have to give them credit. The wind was really blowing and they hit some balls really hard.’’

In the first game, Beau Butler’s three-run homer, which just cleared the fence, gave Midwest City a 4-1 lead in the third which the Bombers never relinquished.

Tanner Lingenfelter, Christian Voitik, Hunter Childs, Braden Rogers and Tanner Fore all had two hits for the Plainsmen, who came close with two runs in the sixth on an RBI double by Childs and an RBI single by Rogers and one in the seventh when Fore doubled and scored on a ground out by Cole Floyd.

Lingenfelter was stranded on second to end the game. EHS scored in the first when Childs doubled and scored on a single by Rogers, who had two RBI on the day.

“We battled back pretty well,’’ Lingenfelter said. “We were able to take advantage of most of our opportunities. Their pitcher did a good job of not putting himself in bad situations with walks.’’

Childs was two-for-four in the second game against Edmond North, with two RBI and a run scored. Jonny Chavez was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

Childs, Chavez and Fore had RBI singles in a four-run third. Bates Enmeier had a bases-loaded walk.

Rogers singled in Lingenfelter in the fourth and Chavez double and scored on a single by Hunter Holden in the fifth.

Johnny Davis led a 16-hit North attack, going four-for-five with two runs scored.
