Baseball sweeps through the Chickasha Tournament

Bookmark and Share

Finally, the rains gave way and beautiful weather set the tone for a great weekend of baseball for the 6th ranked Guthrie BlueJays.

Jacob Chappell was a part of the Jays' third inning cycle against Skiatook by drilling a triple.

The Jays (7-1) picked up three wins over three 5A ranked teams, including two in the top 10, to capture the Chickasha Tournament in dominating fashion.

After a 5-1 decision over 8th ranked Duncan, on Friday, Guthrie piled on 27 runs and allowed just five in a double-header sweep of Skiatook (17-4) and Chickasha (10-1) on Saturday afternoon.

Blaze Hastings took the mound against the Demons and gave his squad five solid innings to pick up his second win of the season. Hastings (2-0) allowed just two hits and one unearned run as Jacob Chappell came in and got the two-inning save.

Bryan Dutton and Hayden Seifert collected four of the teams six hits with two hits each in three plate appearances. Seifert added an RBI.

In the first game of the double-header, Cody Reihs (1-0) took the hill and pitched with confidence as his offense jumped out to a 2-0 lead and did not let go of the pedal.

The Jays scored in each inning and was highlighted in the third inning when, as a team, hit for the cycle in just five batters.

Reed Roberts, who was filling in for Landry Chappell,  got the inning started with his first home run of the season to give the Jays a 7-0 lead. Two hitters later, outfielder Donovan Jordan drilled a double to left-center field, that was quickly followed by Luke Davis’ single and Jacob Chappell finished the cycle with a base clearing triple.

When it was all said and done, Guthrie had built up a 10-0 lead after just three-innings over the 19th ranked team in Class 5A.

Senior Hayden Seifert has safely hit in all 7 games for the 6th ranked BlueJays.

The championship game featured two teams fresh off a state tournament appearance and like they did in the first game of the double dip, the Jays jumped out with the bats.

Davis started the game with a single and was followed by a walk to Jacob Chappell. Both would eventually score as Guthrie sent eight hitters to the plate.

The BlueJays scored two runs each in the third and fourth highlighted by a third inning 2-RBI single by Davis, who finished the game 3-for-5 and three driven in.

Guthrie put an exclamation point on the game and tournament with four runs in the seventh inning with Davis, Seifert and Jordan each collecting RBI’s.

Dutton improved to a team high 3-0 on the mound as he pitched four solid innings before giving way to Chappell for the final three innings. Dutton allowed just two hits and one unearned run.

Chappell continues to give the coaching staff great relief appearances and allowed the Chicks just one hit.

Seifert continued his hitting ways by going 8-of-12 over the weekend to go along with 7 RBI’s. The senior is hitting nearly .600 on the young season.

Guthrie returns to the diamond on Tuesday afternoon when they host Guymon for a district double-header. The first pitch is set for 4:30.
