Bronchos claim Red Dirt Classic opener

CENTRAL HIGH — It’s been said, “Home is where the heart is.”

For the Central High Bronchos though, home is where the wins are these days.

A three run first inning was just the boost the Bronchos needed Thursday afternoon against Bray-Doyle, as CHHS claimed a 7-3 win in the first round of the Red Dirt Classic at Broncho Field.

“I thought we played pretty well,” Central High coach Harley Nelson said. “Our bats got going a little in the third and fourth. But, we need to get it going earlier than that. We need to get outs and not let two outs turn into more out there. But we’re going to let this one go and focus on our next game in the tournament.”

A lead-off triple by John Repp got things started as he was brought home by an RBI double from Austen Dewitt. Dewitt would later score in the inning along with Ashton Wright to give the Bronchos a 3-0 cushion after the first inning.

Bray-Doyle though had chances to get back into the game, having two runners on base in multiple innings.

However, the only time the Donkeys could cash in on the opportunity was in the third, fourth and fifth innings with each time only collecting one run.

Dallas Lyles got B-D on the board when he scored on a throwing error in the top of the third bring the score to 3-1, before Michael Hendrix got an RBI-double to make it 6-2 in the top of the fourth.

Dylan Sparks also got an RBI double in the top of the fifth, to cut the Bronchos lead to 6-3.

“We had opportunities out there, but we weren’t able to put it in play,” B-D coach Cody Tutwiler said. “I feel like our kids came out and battled today against a quality team and we got a little better today. We just need to get more knowledgeable in the game and hopefully we’ll just keep getting better.”

Repp collected an RBI double in the bottom of the third, before scoring on a wild pitch to make it 5-1 for the Bronchos.

Kade Taylor also scored in the third, when he took advantage of a throwing error at third base to make it 6-1, before getting an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth.

Mikel Womack (1-0) went the distance for the Bronchos (2-2) throwing five innings of work, allowing three runs on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

Cody Watson also went the distance for the Donkeys, allowing seven runs on six hits with five strikeouts and three walks.

B-D will play this morning at 10 a.m. at Central High, while the Bronchos were scheduled to continue play Thursday night at the Red Dirt Classic.

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