Duncan baseball gets sixth straight win

DUNCAN — No matter the circumstances, the Duncan baseball team continues to find new ways to win.

The Demons (6-1) picked up their sixth straight win Friday, using strong pitching from Trevor Stone and timely hitting to beat No. 8 Binger Oney 3-2.

“We haven’t totally hit our stride, but we keep showing enough fight when it counts to win games,” Demons coach Tim Hightower said. “We knew we’d get a fight out of them and showed a lot of character.”

Duncan hasn’t lost since dropping its season opener at Lawton Eisenhower 7-1.

In his first game as a starting pitcher this season, Trevor Stone proved to be the difference, allowing just two runs on eight hits in a complete game win.

The Bobcats (8-5) did most of their work against Stone early, taking a quick 1-0 lead after scoring on a two out single in the first inning.

Duncan wasted no time bouncing back, as Cade Baldwin was brought home from third on a Dillon Stanley ground ball single.

With the game tied at 1-1, Binger-Oney got to Stone for the last time in the thrd, scoring on a one out single. The play did come with a silver lining, as centerfielder Taber Kaspereit threw out a Bobcats runner at home to Mason Hightower to end the inning.

The Demons got all the runs they needed two innings later, with two runs in the fifth. Baldwin was once again brought home by Stanley, this time on a bloop single, and Stanley scored the game’s winning run later that inning.

After taking that lead, there was no looking back for Duncan. Stone kept the Bobcats scoreless for the final four innings, receiving strong help from the defense.

“I think we learned a lot from this game,” Hightower said. “We’re going to continue to improve and develop as the season progresses and I’m happy with the way we handled things.”

Three comeback chances for the Bobcats were all halted from inning-ending double plays, including in the seventh when Kaspereit caught a fly ball and threw out a runner at second base to secure the Demons win.

Duncan was originally  scheduled to face the Oklahoma City Bronchos on Saturday, but their game was rained out. No official makeup date has been scheduled.

The Demons will try to make it seven in a row at 6:30 p.m. Monday when it visits Lawton Macarthur.

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.
