“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.
