Midwest City improved to 4-0 in district play with a pair of wins against Altus last week.

The Bombers (5-5, 4-0 in District 5A-2) beat Altus 14-4 on the road Monday afternoon, and won 9-6 on Tuesday at home.

In the first game, Midwest City led 6-4 in the fourth inning, before putting the game away with an eight-run sixth inning.

Kenneth Colston and Kevin Nelson both homered in the win.

Bryan Williams Jr., Stephen Lewellyn and James Washburn had two hits each, and Terrance Rideau hit a triple.

Noah Polston earned the win in four innings of work. He allowed three runs on five hits and five walks. Washburn closed out the game with two scoreless innings.

The Bombers racked up 14 hits in the second game for the 9-6 win.

They took control early with three runs in the first inning and never trailed the rest of the way.

Williams went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs. Lewellyn and Turner McPherson each had three hits and Colston had two.

Lewellyn started the game and allowed three earned runs on eight hits and two walks, while striking out seven.

The Bombers didn’t fare so well later in the week. They lost a pair of close non-district games against Chickasha and Southmoore.

The Chicks won 5-4 on a walkoff single in the 10th inning.

Colston homered and drove in three runs for the Bombers. He also started the game on the mound and threw seven innings. Colston allowed four runs on four hits and four walks, while striking out nine.

Washburn pitched the final 2 1/3 innings.

On Saturday, the Bombers tied the game in the fifth inning but surrendered a pair of runs late in the 7-5 loss to Southmoore.

Lewellyn had two hits and two RBIs.

Polston and Jesse Bain pitched for the Bombers. Polston allowed three earned runs in four innings pitched. Bain gave up two runs on two hits and four walks.

Midwest City will play in the Edmond Festival later this week.
