Demons torch Southeast, 17-0

DUNCAN — The coaches were smiling and joking, the infield was happily chattering and the outfield had little better to do than complain about the pesky bugs that wouldn’t stop buzzing around them.

It was the kind of atmosphere you’re allowed to have when you lead by double digits.

The Duncan Demons went up by nine runs in the first inning and cruised to a 17-0 win over visiting Southeast Oklahoma City in five innings Monday.

“In a game like this, you just want to be patient at the plate, see good pitches and when you see a good pitch, you put your bat on it,” Duncan coach Tim Hightower said. “We jumped out on them and we scored in every inning. We kept it going. We didn’t let up.”

Just as dominant as Duncan’s hitting was its pitching. Dylan Linke got the start and faced the minimum through two innings, hitting one batter but picking him off at first base to make up for it. Looking to keep Linke fresh for a game against Wichita Falls on Thursday, the Demons brought in Dillon Stanley in the third inning and Stanley allowed only one hit over three innings. The duo combined for nine strikeouts, while the defense played error-free behind them en route to Duncan’s first shutout of the season.

“I think we settled in and we played pretty solid,” Hightower said. “That’s something we said before the game that we wanted to do, settle in and play a solid defensive game. We communicated well and made the routine plays and really had great effort on defense.”

Camden Dennard got the Demons offense going with a line drive into left field for a single and the next batter, Linke, drove him in on a double to the right-center field gap for the only run Duncan would need.

Linke and Dennard each went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, while Dylan Gilbert went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Christian Thaxton and Dillon Stanley both went 1-for-1 with a pair of walks, and drove in a combined three runs, while Spencer White also went 1-for-1.

Southeast (1-2) didn’t get its first hit until the third inning as Roberto Martinez singled into right field, but Duncan safely got out of the inning as the next batter grounded out and Southeast didn’t put a runner in scoring position until a walk and a sacrifice bunt moved a runner to second base in the top of the fifth inning, one at-bat before the game came to an end on a strikeout.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
