After a dominating performance on the mound, Cashion's Ty Reasnor's was hoping for another chance to throw in the Class A state baseball tournament.
His wish was granted hours after he threw a complete-game one-hitter in a 3-1 victory against Binger-Oney in the quarterfinals Friday at Palmer Field in Dolese Park.
“People are saying there's an injunction filed, so hopefully we can get things delayed and hopefully I'll have another shot,” he said. “But we've got other pitchers on the team that are good also, and give them a shot tomorrow and play behind them to see what we can do.”
But tomorrow won't be necessary with the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association halting the tournament after three games to appeal the McCurtain County court ruling that granted a temporary restraining order to Wright City, which allows it to play after being forced to forfeit the quarterfinal game against Sterling.
The OSSAA's appeal is Monday in Oklahoma Supreme Court.
When the tournament does resume, Cashion will play Rattan in the semifinals.
But Reasnor and Cashion (24-8) opened the tournament with a superb outing in which he struck out 17 and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning.
“I looked up there a few times and saw a zero, but I wasn't really worried about it,” Reasnor said. “I just wanted to win.”
The right-handed senior allowed a run in the first, despite not allowing a hit, and Binger-Oney's lone hit came when Kelton Green singled in the sixth inning.
At one point, Reasnor retired 10 straight — nine by strikeout — and struck out the side four times.
Cashion scratched out three runs on only just three total hits, scoring twice in the second inning and adding an insurance run in the fourth.
Now, there is a chance to recover offensively, and for Reasnor to recover physically.
“He's a horse,” Cashion coach Colby O'Donnell said. “That's the kind of competitor that he is; that's what you expect out of him. I'm not surprised by it.
“He's a great kid and a great athlete and extremely competitive. I expected this from him.”
ROFF 12, GLENCOE 5
With a lineup that includes five freshmen, Roff looked like a team with plenty of state tournament experience.
The Tigers broke through with a five-run fifth, got a solid pitching performance from freshman Dalton Reed, and advanced to the semifinals.
The Tigers will play either Sterling or Wright City in the semifinals, depending on the outcome of the OSSAA's appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Mike Anderson, another freshman, was 3 for 3 with three runs and an RBI for Roff.
Reed (8-1) allowed a leadoff home run to Nate Melton to start the game but settled in to go the distance.
"I was impressed with the way he regained his composure after that home run," Tigers coach Ead Simon said. "Actually, he never lost it. He did a really good job for us out there today."
Glencoe committed seven errors in the game, including three in the fifth.
RATTAN 15, THOMAS 5, 6 INNINGS
Cullen Mack homered, drove in three runs and scored four times as Rattan pulled away for the run-rule victory.
After falling behind 2-0 in the first, Mack blasted a two-run homer to left field. He later drove in the go-ahead run in the second with a single.
The Rams (27-8) completed the run-rule with a five-run sixth in which Cade Clay had a two-run single and Landon Carper had a two-run single to finish with five RBIs.
Hayden Herrera went 3 for 3 and scored a run for Thomas (15-8), which was making its first ever state baseball tournament appearance.
