The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team improved to 4-1 Friday afternoon with a 6-4 non-district victory over Edmond Memorial (4-4) at the Owasso Festival. The Bulldogs took an early 1-0 lead, but the Sandites piled on five runs in the fifth for the come-from-behind win.

Hunter Lenochan got off to a rough start on the mound, walking three in the first inning. He adjusted quickly, however, and saved the inning with a pair of strikeouts. Coit Morton singled in Trace Evans in the bottom of the inning for Edmond’s only lead of the day.

Much of the game was uneventful offensively, but the Sandites showed off on defense. Seth Villines made a throw to Cale Savage at first for a double play, and Ben Banker struck out the side in order in the third inning.

The Sandite bats came alive in the fifth and they loaded the bases with a walk and a pair of singles from Tyler Ash and Malachi Burks. Cal Watkins drove in two on a double, Savage and Ethan Sartin hit RBI singles, and Watkins stole home to end the inning 5-1.

The Bulldogs tried to battle back in the bottom of the sixth. Morton doubled in Evans and scored on an error to make it 5-3, but a 4-6-3 double play brought the inning to a close.

Watkins hit another double in the seventh and Burks scored on a single from Savage. Weston Hicks doubled for the Dogs and scored on a fielder’s choice, but Burks caught a line drive to left field to strand a runner and end the game.

Banker (2-0) picked up his second win of the season, throwing nine hits and six strikeouts with no walks.

The Sandites will depart for Florida this weekend to compete in the 27th Annual Tate Aggie Classic in the greater Pensacola area over Spring Break.
