The Midwest City baseball team rallied to win the three-day Edmond Classic, knocking off Edmond Santa Fe 7-2 Saturday morning in the championship.

Midwest City, which snapped a six-game losing streak by beating Edmond North on the first day of the tournament, is now 14-15 heading into the district finale with Edmond Memorial on Monday and Tuesday.

Justin Cooper gave the Bombers a 4-2 lead in the top of the third with a two-run single as they scored five unanswered runs in the final five innings.

Midwest City opened the tournament by losing to Southmoore, 2-0, but then beat Edmond North, Enid and El Reno heading into Saturday’s championship.

Until Saturday, Edmond Santa Fe cruised in the tournament, beating Piedmont (7-2), Choctaw (11-3), Moore (14-6) and Lawton (7-2).

SANTA FE’S ISON WINS SECOND STRAIGHT

The last two boys Class 6A individual state championships have gone to an Edmond Santa Fe golfer, and if it is to happen for a third straight year, Drew Ison might be emerging as the top candidate.
