STONEWALL 4, OKTAHA 1 — At Stonewall, Neither team had much offense — each had just one hit. But it proved costlier to Oktaha in the Class A fall baseball regional Thursday.
Derek Ellison didn’t allow a hit in five innings, but he walked five and hit two batters. A hopper back at him in the first hit off the heel of his glove and recovering, threw wild to first, allowing two runs to score. In relief, Austin Dillon walked two and gave up an infield hit in the sixth.
Oktaha’s Daniel Hayes was hit by a pitch and scored on a wild pitch in the second, making it 3-1. J.L. Lopez’s single in the fifth for Oktaha was the first base hit by either team.
“It was a really odd game,” Oktaha coach Chris Burt said. “Their hit was debatable as to whether it was a hit. The guy goes between third and short and the third baseman tries to tag the guy running to third and instead throws to first and they beat it out. I thought it could have gone as a fielder’s choice. Of course if that happened, we’ve lost while throwing a no-hitter. Go figure.”
Ellison fell to 6-3 with the loss. Oktaha (20-9) plays at 2 p.m. against Tushka, who lost 4-3 to Fort Cobb-Broxton. The winner will play for the consolation ticket to state against the Stonewall-Fort Cobb loser of a game later Thursday.
