Baseball: Muskogee dominated again by Owasso

This time, Muskogee got four hits.

But that wasn’t nearly enough as the Roughers lost 12-1 on a five-inning run-rule to the Owasso Rams in District 6A-3 action at Roughers Park on Tuesday.

The Roughers, falling to 8-16 overall and 1-9 in district, scored their lone run in the fifth when Harris Jones singled home Tyler Bowden. In Monday’s action, Muskogee lost 9-0 on a no-hitter to the Rams, ranked second in the Okrankings.com Class 6A poll.

“We’ve faced really good pitching in our last three games,” MHS coach Doug Gunselman said, including the loss to Rogers, Ark., over the past weekend. “You have a small margin of error when you face good offensive teams.”

Austin Jones led the Roughers with two singles.

MHS faces another good team at home at 5 p.m. Friday when it plays No. 3 Sand Springs.

“We go from No. 2 to No. 3,” Gunselman said. “It’s just how the schedule worked out. It’s a tough week.”

Austin O’Brien led the Rams (23-3) with three hits and two RBIs, while Colton Crocker had two hits and scored two runs.
