ENID, Okla. — The Enid Majors saw their 11-game win streak come to an end Monday evening with an 8-2 loss to the Woodward Travelers at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.
The contest was Enid’s first game in nearly two weeks when the Majors (19-3) swept OKC Broncos in a doubleheader on June 25.
Majors’ starting pitcher Ambren Voitik had a rough start to his very brief outing against the Travelers (42-8-1). Voitik allowed the Travelers’ leadoff hitter to reach on a four-pitch walk. Three batters later, the bases were loaded with just one out.
The Travelers tallied the game’s first two runs as Brady Benedict singled to left for two RBI. Voitik was pulled from the game for reliever Gage Ninness.
Woodward tacked on another run before the end of the top half to give itself a 3-0 lead.
Enid got on the board in the bottom half after Voitik kicked things off with a leadoff double. Jordan Coffey drove in Voitik with an RBI-single to left. Coffey was left stranded at third when the first inning concluded.
The Majors loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the second, but were unable to take advantage as the threat ended after a strikeout and inning-ending double play.
Woodward extended its lead in the fourth and fifth innings to take a 6-1 advantage. In the seventh, the Travelers added two more insurance runs on a two-RBI single to right field.
The Majors scored their second and final run on an RBI ground out in the bottom half of the seventh by Hayden Priest.
Even with Monday’s loss, Enid has still won 16 of its last 18 games.
The Majors return to action Wednesday as it hosts the Oklahoma State Connie Mack Tournament at David Allen Memorial Ballpark.
Enid takes on Shawnee at 8:15 p.m. in the Day 1 nightcap. The five-day tournament concludes Sunday with the qualifier championship at noon.
