The Class B baseball state quarterfinals are underway and Oklahoma Sports is on hand to bring you the action on the diamond.
Roff 10, Shidler 0
The hard-hitting Roff Tigers showed Shidler they can pitch as well, shutting down the other Tigers team, 10-0.
The offense started early, with an Aaron Cornell home run in the bottom of the first.
A fantastic defensive play by Shidler center fielder Ladd Murphy couldn't do enough to stop Roff's record-breaking offense. Nor could Cornell be stopped on the mound, striking out 11 and taking a no-hitter into the fifth.
A three-run shot by Brendan McCurry put the game out of reach for Roff.
Red Oak 6, Asher 1
Dakota Knight was the story of the game, giving up just two hits in his six innings of work for Red Oak. One of the hits he surrendered was a solo home run by Matt Johnson, but Asher could not muster any more offense to overcome a fast start by Red Oak.
The Eagles began the game's scoring with a run in the top of the first to take a quick lead. They extended their advantage with a big third inning, when Mason Krenshaw launched a two-run home run and his teammates added a third run in the frame to take a 4-0 lead.
After Johnson's homer, Red Oak tacked on two more insurance runs and coasted into the state semifinals.
Granite 5, Caney 2
Caney took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, but Granite tied things up in thetop of the third on a Bo Hopkins RBI single to right.
Later in the third with the bases loaded, Caney's Aaron Chalk walked Dlan Graves and Granite took the 2-1 lead. Granite would end up taking a 3-1 lead after three.
Caney's Chas Crites cut it to 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth on a sacrifice fly, and then in the top of the sixth Blake Warren hit a three-run bomb to break it open at 5-2 and that would be the final.
Granite remains unbeaten on the season and advances to the Class B semifinals at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Red Oak.
