State berth on the line for Purcell

Dragons play at 6 p.m. at Oklahoma Christian School


The winner of tonight’s Regional Baseball final will punch their ticket to the State Tournament later this week.
Purcell and the Saints are playing in a delayed Regional finale which was postponed from last Saturday for unknown reasons.
Purcell beat Lindsay twice in the tournament, fighting back through the loser’s bracket after Oklahoma Christian School pinned an 8-2 loss on the Dragons in the tournament’s second round.
Purcell edged the Saints in the bottom of the seventh in a walk off single by Creed Smith to win 4-3 forcing the if necessary game.
Purcell was ready to play the game last Saturday per the posted OSSAA Regional tournament rules but for some reason the game was delayed until Monday.
Tucker Bloodworth got the pitching victory going the full seven innings, striking out four.
In addition to Smith’s thrilling hit in the seventh, Sharp also got hits from Nate Willis, Hayden Harp, Zach Idlett, Bloodworth and Boston Knowles.
Earlier in the day Purcell run-ruled Lindsay 12-2 scoring 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth including a three-run dinger by Smith.
Idlett was 3-4 with three RBIs, Bloodworth was 2-3 with an RBI. Willis and Parker Page both had an RBI.
Willis pocketed the victory on the mound with relief in the seventh by Logan Roberts.
Page was the winning pitcher in the first victory over Lindsay. He scattered nine hits and struck out three.
Willis had a triple in a 2-3 performance while Idlett, Harp, Knowles and Bloodworth all had hits.
