Indians Fall in Wignet Semis

Share on RSS


The Doenges Ford Indians did not have enough to get into the title game of their own Glen Winget Tournament on Monday afternoon.

The Tribe fell to the Elk City Mudcats 8-3 in the semifinals of the historic 4th of July event.

Bartlesville had an early 3-0 lead evaporate quickly, as the Mudcats bats came alive down the stretch. Elk City scored three runs in the fourth then five more in the fifth to pull away.

Bartlesville managed only two base-runners from the fourth inning on.

Early in the contest it looked like the Indians might roll. Alan Covarrubias hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first, the third homer of the year for the Tribe, and it got the Indians on top early.

Unfortunately there would not be a lot of other offensive highlights. Bartlesville scored one unearned run in the third to grab the three-run advantage before Elk City piled on. The Mudcats had 11 hits to the Tribe’s four. Bartlesville walked three and committed one error.

Bryant, Arkansas would go on to beat the Mudcats 6-4 in the Winget title game. Mudcats left the bases loaded in their last at-bat. 

Despite the loss, still a successful weekend for the club. Bartlesville stands at 21-9-1 on the season heading into its final few weeks of play.

No game for the Tribe on Tuesday – at one point there was an Oklahoma Collegiate League double-header on the schedule for today, but that has been pushed back.

Tribe will be in action later this week in the Oklahoma City area.
