Clash Baseball at North-2

Norman North’s Jack Bucholz pitches during the Clash baseball game on April 5 at Tull Lake Field.

A day after Norman North lost on a seventh-inning run to Westmoore, it finished its district slate by handing a similar loss to the Jaguars on Tuesday.

Ibraheem Ahmed hit a line drive down the right side, plating Jackson Lundquist to secure the walk-off 3-2 victory.

North first went ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the third via Will Bradley’s two-run single, but Westmoore picked up runs in the fifth and seventh to tie the game.

The T-Wolves were able to hold on to avenge their loss to the Jaguars, who beat them 4-3 the day prior on a bases-loaded walk.

North’s Tuesday starter Jack Bucholz struck out nine and walked four in 6 2/3 innings. Brodie Finlay, who was awarded the win, pitched 1/3 of the final frame and got the T-Wolves out of the late jam with runners on first and second.

North will finish its regular-season slate on Thursday and Friday against Putnam City North and Edmond Santa Fe, respectively.
