The Yukon baseball team may be peaking at the right time with the playoffs around the corner.

The Millers won all four games in the Deer Creek/Yukon Classic over the weekend, earning the tournament title for their 10th win in the last 12 games.

Yukon (23-5) ended the tournament with a 9-4 victory over Westmoore behind the bat of Garrett Benge, who homered and doubled. Logan Wigley also threw the complete game, allowing three earned runs and striking out eight.

Yukon also beat Red Oak, ranked No. 1 in Class B, 8-3 on Friday. The Millers defeated both Edmond North (1-0) and Guthrie (4-2) on Thursday.

Guthrie finished second, going 3-1 in the tournament and beating Norman North 9-8 in eight innings on Saturday.

WESTMOORE’S TRIPP FULLER HEADED TO OC

Westmoore’s new all-time leading scorer is heading to Oklahoma Christian to continue his basketball career.

Tripp Fuller, who is Westmoore’s first 1,000-point scorer, signed with OC last week.
