Boomers edge Newkirk

Woodward, Okla. — PERRY - Francisco Alvarez tossed a 1-hitter and struck out 9 as the Boomers edged Newkirk 2-0 on the final day of the Perry Baseball Tournament Saturday.

The 5-inning game was played in wet and cold conditions. Even so, Alvarez was in command. A leadoff single was all Newkirk could manage on the Boomer senior and the Tigers didn't advance a runner past second base.

Woodward got both of its runs in the first inning.

Gage Owen was hit by a pitch to start the game and scored on Kade Marlatt's double. Kyler Ferguson's two-out single scored Marlatt to make it 2-0.

Woodward had one other scoring chance in the third, but came up empty.

The Boomers finished the tournament 2-2 and are 4-6 overall.

Late Friday night, the Boomers dropped a 7-1 decision to Alva.

Jake Hughes started and took the loss, working into the 5th inning. Troy Reddoch and Gage Owen threw in relief.

The Boomers scored their only run in the third inning and took a 1-0 lead into the 5th before Alva scored 4 times. The Goldbugs added 3 more in the 6th inning to put away.

Winning pitcher Ty Hooper had 2 hits and drove in 3 runs to pace Alva. Cade Pfleider added 3 hits.

The Boomers had 8 hits in the game but struggled to turn them into runs as they left 10 on base.

The only run came in the third inning when Gage Owen reached on an error and scored on a single by Alvarez.

On Thursday, the Boomers ran into a hot pitcher as Glencoe's Nate Helton struck out 13 and allowed just 3 hits.

Kyler Ferguson pitched a complete game for the Boomers, giving up 10 hits and striking out 6.

Glencoe scored once in the first, then added 3 runs over the final 2 frames.

The Boomers are home this week, facing Leedey on Monday and hosting a festival on Friday and Saturday.
