The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (16-3, 5-1) picked up a pair of district wins against Ponca City (7-15, 1-5) in a home-and-home series Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday they needed an extra inning to edge out a 2-1 victory over Ponca. The Wildcats scored their only run in the bottom of the second thanks to an error at second and an RBI triple.

Cal Watkins quickly tied the game in the top of the third, bringing in Seth Villines on a single. Cale Savage hit a double in the eighth to score Kiefer Massey for the win. Sand Springs out hit the Wildcats four to one and both teams picked up six walks each. The Sandites stranded six runners and Ponca left seven on base.

Undefeated senior Ben Banker (5-0, 6-0) got the start on the mound, walking three and giving up one hit in three and one third innings. John Miller (2-0, 7-1) took over midway through the fourth and was credited with the win after walking three and striking out seven.

Tuesday’s game was a totally different story as the Sandites scored four in the first inning and led 7-0 before the Wildcats tried to rally with four runs in the final two innings.

Tyler Ash, Watkins, and Savage hit singles in the first inning, with Savage scoring Ash. Watkins scored on a fielder’s choice and Ethan Sartin hit a double to bring in Savage and Jacob Snodgrass. Watkins and Savage scored on a pair of errors in the bottom of the fifth, and Malachi Burks stole home.

The Wildcats finally got on the board with an error in the sixth. Austin Haney hit a solo homer in the seventh and Ponca loaded the bases with a single and a pair of walks. Eli Wohl scored two on a double and the Wildcats reloaded with another walk, but a Watkins strikeout secured the win.

Sebastian Cassity (3-1) got the start and win on the mound, throwing four hits, three strikeouts, and two walks in six innings. Watkins (1-0) closed out the night and was credited with his second save of the season, throwing a hit, a strikeout, and two walks.
