Baseball regional postponed

Cats, Jags fight to stay alive in postseason

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Westmoore baseball regional has been postponed Thursday due to an early morning Thunderstorm, according to Westmoore athletic director John Burris.

The tournament will resume Friday with a pair of games at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Westmoore split a pair of games in the regional opener Wednesday. It defeated Putnam City 5-2 before falling 9-7 to Edmond Santa Fe. One more defeat and the jaguars season will come to an end.

Southmoore also finds itself one loss away from closing out the season. At the Norman North regional, the SaberCats pounded Midwest City 8-3. But then they were shutout 4-0 by the Timberwolves.

The Cats are scheduled to face the Bombers again today. The winner goes on to play North. The first contest is scheduled for 6 p.m. today, though officials expect that to be pushed back to Friday due to rain. If North loses that game, the Timberwolves will have another chance at 1 p.m. Friday, or Saturday in the case of the expected delay.

Moore High was unable to make it out of the opening round of regionals after losing  pair of heartbreakers at Yukon. The one that ended their season may be been the worst.

Norman High trailed Moore 6-3 heading into the final inning, but the Tigers weren’t finished. They stormed back to score four runs in the final at-bat and steal the game 7-6. In the process, they extended their season when a routine ground ball to the shortstop was thrown wild by the Lions to give the Tigers the winning runs.
