Travelers rout Edmond team

Woodward, Okla. — MIDWEST CITY - Make it 8 in a row for the Traveler Majors.

Woodward used a pair of 6-run innings to rout Edmond Santa Fe 13-4 in the South Plains Classic at Rose State College on Friday.

The Travelers moved to 2-0 in the tournament and need only a split of their games on Saturday to earn the top seed out of their pool. Woodward faces the Oklahoma City Panthers at 9 a.m. at Midwest City High School, then Burkburnett, Texas at 3:45 p.m. Bracket play starts on Sunday at both Midwest City High School and Rose State.

Kent Callison pitched 5 innings for the win over Santa Fe with Bryce Clemons working the 6th inning.

Aaron McCandless and Clayton Brewster led the Traveler offense.

McCandless homered, singled, doubled and drove in 4 runs while Brewster drove in 3 runs with a homer and a triple.

McCandless' first inning homer gave the Travelers a brief 1-0 lead. Edmond Santa Fe scored in the first and second innings to go up 2-1, but the Travelers plated 6 runs in the third frame. Leno Ramirez had a 2-run single and Brewster the 2-run homer to cap the inning.

Edmond closed the gap over the next 2 frames, cutting the lead to 7-4 after 5 innings.

But in the sixth, the Travelers came alive again, with some help from the Santa Fe defense.

Hayden Simmons drew a walk to start the inning, then Zach Friesen singled. The runners moved up on a throwing error. Francisco Alvarez then walked to load the bases. Connor Ross bounced back to the pitcher, who threw the ball away allowing 2 runs to score.

McCandless then ripped a double down the first base line to score 2 more runs. Two outs later, Ramirez reached on an error, bringing in McCandless. Brewster then tripled to score Ramirez with the final Traveler run.
