NORMAN — Norman High couldn’t quite get over the hump Tuesday against Edmond Memorial, losing its fifth game of the year by run, 4-3.
Coach Pete Sangirardi said the team’s biggest issue Tuesday was a lack of emotion, unable to complete a comeback after falling behind 3-0 in the third inning.
“We came out flat,” he said. “We didn’t pitch great, but it was good enough to stay in the ballgame. But we couldn’t get the bats going.”
The Tigers (7-9) managed just four hits and committed a costly error on Tuesday while allowing Memorial nine hits.
“We feel as a club we can be dangerous if we can put everything together, but so far that hasn’t really happened yet,” Sangirardi said. “We haven’t had our pitching, hitting and fielding all together in the same game yet. We’re so much better than we were a year ago, but we’re still climbing the ladder.”
