Demons win fifth straight

DUNCAN — With another early season win Tuesday, the Duncan baseball team continued to send a clear message: when it comes to district play, the team will always be a tough out.

The Demons (5-1) won their fifth straight game and improved to 4-0 in district play, beating Ardmore for the second straight night in a 4-1 win.

“We did a much better job putting the ball in play tonight,” Demons coach Tim Hightower said. “We made play when we had to make them and did enough to win.”

For the second straight night, the Demons got off to a fast start against the Tigers with two runs in the second.

Hunter Phillips got things started with a one out single and Taber Kaspereit moved Cody Cole, who ran for Phillips, to second with a bunt single. Cole scored the game’s first run on an error by the Ardmore second baseman and Kaspereit added to the lead when he scored on a Cade Baldwin ground ball to second base.

The Tigers nearly responded in the bottom half of the inning when they loaded the bases with one out, but starting pitcher Dillon Stanley ended the rally with back to back strikeouts.

Stanley made a habit of keeping the Tigers off the basepaths all night, throwing a complete game four hitter with just one earned run.

With a 2-0 lead, the Demons added to the advantage with two more runs in the fifth inning. Phillips led with a walk and after Kaspereit brought Cole, once again pinch running, to second, Ryan Haley blasted an RBI triple to left center field. Haley then scored on a fielder’s choice from a ground ball hit by Stanley.

The Demons returns to action when it competes in the Shawnee Tournament on Friday. The  team will open tournament play against Binger-Oney.

Poll

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.
