Midwest City’s baseball team had a rough go at it last week.

The Bombers dropped a pair of district games against Sapulpa early in the week and went winless at the Rose Rock Classic in Noble.

They opened the week with a trip to Sapulpa on March 27. The Bombers (5-11) got on the board in the fourth inning but gave up five more in the sixth for an 11-2 loss.
Devin Sissons had two hits. Kenny Colston and Noah Polston pitched for the Bombers.

It was a different story on Tuesday night as the Bombers took the lead early at home. But the Chieftains tied the game 2-2 in the fifth and scored four in the seventh for the 6-2 victory.

Irvin allowed four earned runs on 10 hits and two walks. He recorded eight strikeouts.

Kevin Nelson gave the Bombers the early lead with a two-run single in the bottom of the first. Sapulpa added one run in the third and fifth innings to even the score, before pulling ahead in the seventh.

The Chieftains (14-3, 6-0) are the only unbeaten team in District 5A.

Midwest City returned to action Thursday for the Rose Rock Classic. The Bombers fell behind early and never recovered in an 8-2 loss to the host Bears.

It was a similar scenario Friday against McAlester. The Buffaloes scored 11 runs in the first three innings and rolled to a 13-4 win.

Bryan Williams Jr. went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI. Sisson and Brandon Dixon also doubled in the game.

Polston started the game and threw three innings. Dixon threw the final 1/3 inning.

The Bombers didn’t have much luck Saturday in an 8-0 loss to Southmoore in the final day of the tournament.

Williams went 1 for 2 with a triple.

Colston took the loss in four innings on the mound.

The Bombers faced Bishop Kelley Monday and Tuesday night in district action. They will play again Thursday as they host Weatherford in the Bill Tipton Classic. Midwest City, Carl Albert and Shawnee are hosting games in the tournament Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
