Jon Denney's bat, Kyle Gibson's glove recipe for Yukon success
I got to see Kyle Gibson pitched for Yukon at Edmond Santa Fe a couple of weeks ago. After a rough start, he settled down and showed why he is in the Millers’ rotation.
But what he did Monday in a 16-7 victory against Putnam North, arguably the hottest team around, was even more impressive.
He turned in one great play after another at shortstop. Yukon took a 10-2 lead, but the Panthers slowly crawled their way back into it.
Then we were stuck at 11-7 for two innings because Gibson made all the routine plays and then added a little something extra and made some top-notch quality plays.
It allowed Conner Sayers to throw a complete game, and it kept PCNorth at bay. Yukon’s bats woke up one more time with a five-run seventh inning and there ya go, 16-7.
Huge day at the plate for Jon Denney. Started the game with an RBI single. Next at bat was a three-run double. And then punctuated it with a three-run triple that all but iced the game.
Interesting dynamic with the wind in this one. I don’t think I saw the best of either team because of the conditions, but I’m glad I went out. Obviously way too windy for a video so apologize, Denney. You’re owed a video one of these days.
