CARL ALBERT 8, PRYOR 1

For Carl Albert, runs haven't been difficult to come by this season. The Titans have scored at least 10 runs in 21 of their 37 games.


On Thursday, they had the bats going once again, scoring eight runs on nine hits to coast to an 8-1 win over Pryor in the Class 5A quarterfinals.

The defending state champions were led at the plate and on the mound by Cameron Warren. The junior collected two hits, and threw a complete game to get the win.

“It felt good to pitch that well,” Warren said. “It was good that we came out and got some runs, and I didn't allow any walks. I don't even remember the last time I was able to do that.”

Pryor was led by senior Casey Holloway, who was 2-for-3 and scored the Tigers' only run. Holloway tied his own school record with his 40th stolen base of the season in the sixth inning.

COWETA 11, GUTHRIE 8

Coweta used an aggressive approach at the plate — pounding out 14 hits — and a gutty pitching performance from Ty Gunter in route to a quarterfinal win.

“He (Gunter) really gutted it out today,” Coweta coach Pat Foster said. “He's been a terrific ballplayer for us.”

Gunter pitched around six errors to earn a complete game victory, improving his record to 7-1.

Coweta (17-11) came into the tournament as the underdog, but the Tigers believe they're playing their best baseball of the season.
