Muskogee rallies to remain atop 6A-3

Down two runs, Muskogee scored five runs in the seventh inning and kept atop District 6A-3 with a 6-3 win over Sand Springs at Sand Springs on Tuesday.

They did it against Mallory Collins, the same Oklahoma State signee whom they defeated on Aug. 28 at Muskogee, 7-6 in 10 innings. Shaylee Rowland’s double brought home Aubrey Johnson with the go-ahead run, earning her 13th win in 15 decisions in the process.

“Big hits and stolen bases were the keys for us,” Muskogee coach Keith Coleman said. “Shaylee did a great job from the circle.”

Rowland scattered five hits. All of her runs were earned.

A leadoff single by Brook Hendrickson started the rally. Nia Maxwell drove her in with a double to make it a one-run game at 3-2.

Maxwell then stole third and Bailee Hendrickson drove her home on a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

With two outs, Aubrey Johnson singled, stole second, then Rowland delivered the double to put MHS on top.

Dee Emarthle’s two-run single added insurance runs, scoring Lexi Watson who reached on an infield single and with Rowland at third, stole second.

“This was a big win for us against  a quality team in our district and as far as being able to host games in the playoffs,” Coleman said. “I’m proud of the girls for not giving up.”

Sand Springs, which was third behind Muskogee and Jenks coming in, fell to 3-3 and 13-6 overall. Muskogee 19-2 and still perfect in 6A-3 at 8-0, gets Jenks at home in two weeks.

“We’ve still got a lot of business to take care of before then,” Coleman said. “We have to keep playing well.”
