Home Run Boosts Wildcats

Posted March 11, 2014


Home Run Boosts Wildcats By DAVID MILLER News Sports Editor ENID — The weather Monday was ideal for a baseball game and the Ponca City Wildcats celebrated the occasion with a 4-1 victory over the Enid Plainsmen in Enid’s David Allen Memorial Ballpark. The difference in the game was Wildcat Robert Nanni’s three-run home run in the fifth inning. Otherwise, the game was pretty much a pitchers’ duel between Ponca City’s Joey Furber and three Enid pitchers. Furber, with seventh-inning help from reliever Riley Sells, shut down the Plainsment on one run and six hits. Ponca City had seven hits in the game. The Wildcats main show of offense came in the fifth inning when they scored every one of their runs. After Ponca City’s first inning was scoreless, Enid picked up its lone run in the first inning. It was 1-0 in favor of the Plainsmen until Ponca City’s turn to bat in the fifth. The Plainsmen got their run after Hunter Childs led off with a double, stole third with two out and scored on a single by Braden Rogers. Jeff Calvin started the Ponca City fifth inning with a single and moved to second base on an Enid outfielder’s error. Dalton Mazurier drove home Calvin with a single. Enid’s starter Christian Voitek was replaced on the mound by Cole Floyd after Mazurier’s hit. Mazurier stole second on Floyd and after Enid recorded the first out, Floyd hit Blake Shepard with a pitch. Nanni followed with a drive that bounced off the top of the leftfield wall for a home run. As it turned out that was all the scoring there was to be. After the first inning, in which Enid got its run and two of its six hits, Furber shut down the Plainsmen allowing only four scattered hits. He struck out four batters, and, impressively for this time of the season, walked no one. Sells came in to face four Enid batters and struck out two in his inning of relief. The one batter who got on base during Sells’ tenure reached on an error. Wildcats who got hits in innings other than the fourrun fifth included Brian Wicker, a single in the second; Sam Flowers, a single in the sixth; and Nanni, a double in the seventh. Ponca City had the bases loaded in the sixth inning. After Flowers’ single, Mazurier and Chase Kurtz walked. But then Enid’s Tanner Fore was brought in to pitch and he got a ground out to end the threat. The Wildcats are now 2-1 on the season. They will be back in action today against Enid for a 5 p.m. game at the Po-Hi baseball field.
