Traveler Festival continues

Woodward, Okla. — The Traveler Minors finished the preliminary rounds of the Woodward Festival with a 2-2 record after dropping a 10-1 decision to the Oklahoma Tribe at Fuller Park Saturday morning.

The Minors won their opening two games in the festival, allowing just one run, before losing a 9-6 heartbreaker to the Southwest Shockers Friday night.

The Minors will play on Sunday, but the time has yet to be determined.

Saturday's game was pretty much all Oklahoma Tribe as it scored twice in the first and broke things open with four runs in the fourth inning.

Lawrence Greiner had a triple and scored on a wild pitch for the only Woodward run.

Dillon Moore took the loss.

On Friday, the Minors and Southwest Shockers battled back and fourth until the seventh when the Shockers scored four times on a hit batsman, two singles, an error, wild pitch and walk.

Woodward led 3-1 after two innings, but the Shockers scored single runs in the third and fourth innings to the game.

The Minors regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth before the Shockers went up 5-4 in the sixth. Woodward tied the game in the bottom half on Matt Rackley's single that scored Grant Hodges.

Woodward's Majors team took a 3-0 festival record into a game Saturday evening against Dodge City, Kan.

The Majors opened with a 5-3 win over the Lawton Sting, scoring single runs in the fifth and sixth innings to get the victory.

Jesus Gamez was the winning pitcher and Garrett Gaunt recorded a save.

Easton Palmer doubled and scored on a Dalton Gore sacrifice fly to break the 3-3 tie in the fit and in the sixth, Gaunt doubled and scored on a Chandler Salinas singled.

Jason Nichols homered in the second for the Majors.

Woodward beat the Oklahoma Tribe 8-2 on Friday afternoon, scoring four runs in the first inning and leading all the way.

Gaunt and Palmer each scored twice to lead the Majors and Salinas drove in a pair of runs. Grant Schamburg was the winning pitcher going five solid innings. Damon Mecham pitched the final two frames.

Friday night, the Majors scored six runs in the later innings to defeat the Wichita Sluggers 10-4.

The festival wraps up with five games today.
