NHS stays alive in Yukon

NORMAN — Down to their final out in the consolation game of the Yukon regional, the Tigers didn’t give up. Norman High trailed Moore 6-3 heading into the final inning, but the Tigers weren’t finished. They stormed back to score four runs in the final at-bat and steal the game 7-6. In the process, they extended their season when a routine ground ball to the shortstop was thrown wild by the Lions to give the Tigers the winning runs.

“We were all just shocked to win in walk-off fashion,” coach Pete Sangirardi said. “It was an unexpected way for that to end.”

Tyler Berry started the game for NHS, striking out 13, and PJ Grunsted relieved him in the seventh to earn the win. He gave up just six hits, but because of four Tiger errors, NHS still found itself playing from behind. But with the come-from-behind win, the Tigers stay alive to play another day, with a rematch with Yukon coming at 2 p.m. today if weather permits.

The Millers defeated the Tigers 7-0 in the first game of the day. In that contest, Yukon pitcher Garrett Benge shut down the Tigers, striking out 14 to pick up the win.

The Tigers still have a tough road to the state tournament. They must defeat Yukon to advance to the championship round, where they will have to win two straight games.
