Comanche rallies for victory over V-A Comets

VELMA — The only thing more unpredictable than the weather Tuesday afternoon at Jake’s Field in Velma, was the game between the Comets and the Comanche Indians.

Facing a 3-0 deficit in the third inning, V-A rallied to take a 5-3 lead. However, the Indians were one step ahead and did one better with a four run rally of their own to eventually claim a 7-5 victory.

“We got some good stuff from Dalton Wood today as far as pitching,” Comanche coach Nick Reed said. “To get back on a positive note with a win was huge for us, since we’ve been on such a bad run. Hunter Powell made an ESPN type catch out in right field, which was outstanding to see out there.”

Not to be outdone, Wood made a sliding effort of his own in the bottom of the seventh inning from the pitchers mound, leading to a game-ending double play for the Indians.

With the lead and momentum on their side in the top of the fourth inning, the Comets looked to be in firm control of the game.

And then the rally started for CHS.

First a botched grounder resulted in an RBI for Wood, before Hunter Rice slapped a two-RBI double to left center field, giving Comanche a 6-5 lead.

It wasn’t the first time in the game that Rice had caused some damage, as he collected a two-run inside the park homer in the top of the first inning, to give the Indians a 3-0 lead.

Wood scored CHS’ other two runs in the top of the first with an RBI double and top of the sixth on a throwing error.

V-A managed to chase away CHS starting pitcher Zach Young in the bottom of the third inning, as Evan Albertson got the Comets on the board, scoring on a walk.

Clayton Penny and Strait Ille then both scored on wild pitches to tie the game at 3-3.

Christian Florez then gave the Comets the lead with an RBI single, before later scoring on a throwing error at second base.

Unfortunately, there was to be no more offense from V-A as Comanche used solid defense to shut the door the rest of the way.

“We played as a team today, but just fell short today,” V-A coach Kyle Bare said. “Comanche was hitting the ball and making plays. We just didn’t make plays today.”

Cody Matthews took the loss for the Comets on the mound, allowing three runs on five hits with five strikeouts in three innings of work.

Dalton Wood got the win for the Indians, throwing two innings of relief in which he allowed just one hit with four walks.

Both Comanche and V-A will be participating in the Jake Leffler Comet Invitational wood bat tournament beginning on Thursday.

Comanche will be facing Elmore City-Pernell at Noon from Ringling High School, while the Comets will be hosting Waurika at 2 p.m.
