Majors win in season finale, topple OKC Bulls, 6-1

ENID, Okla. — After an uncharacteristic stretch of dicey games set up their final three games, the Enid Majors have regained their momentum just in time for the Connie Mack State Tournament.

Bradley Kinsey struck out four in six innings and held the visiting Oklahoma City Bulls to two hits in a 6-1 win to cap the Majors’ regular season Saturday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.

Enid (34-12) fell behind early as Kinsey, a Wichita State University baseball commit, walked two to allow a Bulls run in the second. But Kinsey (2-2) recovered and the Majors did the same, tying the game in the bottom of the first and taking a 3-1 lead they wouldn’t lose on a two-run double by Jonathan Castillo in the third.

“We’re hoping to get (Kinsey) back to where he was earlier,” said Enid assistant coach Butch Lingenfelter of Kinsey, who is still on the mend from an inflamed nerve in his pitching elbow. “He was good today, especially late in the game.”

The Majors have won three straight since losing three in a row before the final few games, regaining form just in time for the opening round of the Connie Mack State Tournament Wednesday at David Allen. Enid is scheduled to play the Oklahoma Racers at 8:30 p.m. The Majors were supposed to play two games against OKC Bulls teams on Saturday, but the top Bulls roster was unable to make the trip to Enid, so the Majors followed with a scrimmage with the Minors.

    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
