Carl Albert, Deer Creek getting it done with pitching

Carl Albert coach Wayne Dozier said: “Sometimes, one day or one start makes a lot of difference. Sometimes one guy goes out and has a good game and that gets everything turned around.”

A week ago, Carl Albert's pitching staff could hardly get the ball into the strike zone.

Over the past week, in district games against Ardmore and in five games at the Bill Tipton Tournament, the Titans' pitchers came alive.

In the tournament, which Carl Albert won with a 20-8 win over Westmoore on Saturday, the Titans got four complete games.

“Sometimes, one day or one start makes a lot of difference,” Carl Albert coach Wayne Dozier said. “Sometimes one guy goes out and has a good game and that gets everything turned around.”

Carl Albert starts this week with a 23-3 record. The Titans will face Del City in district play Monday and Tuesday before traveling to McAlester for the 5A Shootout to close the week.

The field features the top three teams in the class — No. 1 Carl Albert, No. 2 Claremore and No. 3 Chickasha — as well as seven other top 17 teams.

“We love it,” Dozier said. “We'll get to play some of those teams and watch some others a little bit more.”

While the Titans are at the top of 5A, Dozier said the class is wide open.
