MIAMI — Scoring 19 runs while collecting 15 hits, Miami routed Wagoner 19-1 Monday in a District 4A-5 clash at Joe Pollock Field/Miami Stadium.
The Wardogs, who played at Wagoner Tuesday afternoon, set the tone for Monday’s clash by scoring 10 runs in the opening inning.
They followed that up with a six-run rally in the second, and then got a final three runs in the fourth.
Wagoner spoiled Keshon Witham’s bid for a shutout by scoring its only run in the second inning.
Witham struck out four, walked three and scattered six hits while working all five innings.
Miami (2-2 overall and 1-0 in district play) sent 14 batters to the plate during the first-inning explosion.
The Dogs collected seven of their 15 hits in the game during a rally that also included two walks, a hit batter and three errors.
The most costly of the miscues came when a single to left by Eli Coyne was misplayed, allowing Coyne to circle the bases.
Seven Miami’s runs came with two out. Isaac Keller had a two-run single while Caden Folks had an RBI double and Brant Morris singled home a run.
The Wardogs had another 11 batters go to the plate during the six-run second. They had another three walks and Coyne reached safely on a passed ball on a strikeout.
Keller picked up a third RBI with a bases-loaded walk, then Hunter Hartman plated two runs with a single.
Coyne capped things off in the sixth inning, taking advantage of a stiff southerly wind to belt a three-run homer to left-center field.
Everybody in the Wardog lineup had at least one hit.
Coyne had a homer and two singles while Brad Hartman contributed three singles.
Keller and Drew Williams collected two hits each.
Folks doubled and Conner Womack, Morris, Hunter Hartman and Witham each had a single.
The 19 runs were the most for the Wardogs since crushing Haskell 23-2 last season at the Mickey Mantle Classic in Commerce.
After Tuesday’s game at Wagoner, the Wardogs travel to Verdigris Thursday.
