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.”

One of those four — No. 11 Shawnee — will also be at McAlester.

The others — No. 4 Deer Creek, No. 6 McGuinness and No. 7 Guthrie — will be playing in the BSN Sports/Pro Nine Classic hosted by Deer Creek.

Deer Creek's key recently has also been pitching.

“We don't have an upper-level guy like Michael Fulmer like we've had in the past, but we feel like we've got about eight guys that we don't have any problem running out there,” Antlers coach Ron Moore said.

A big part of that group has been Michael Brinska.

“I don't know how many people I told last year that this guy had the best stuff on our staff,” Moore said. “He just didn't throw enough strikes for us.”

Brinska has found the zone this year, but more importantly he's found confidence.

“That's been the biggest thing, just knowing that, ‘Hey, my stuff's good enough to win every time I go out there,'” Moore said.
