Ripley wins conference tournament with rout of Davenport

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Ripley Warriors won a pair of games against Davenport on Saturday to claim the Cimarron 7 championship.

The Warriors had to claw their way to a victory in the opener, which had started Friday night and was postponed to Saturday morning due to inclement weather.

Levi Morris, who relieved Caulden Greenfield after the overnight delay, earned the win on the mound thanks to his play at the plate. Morris hit a three-run home run in the four-run fourth inning for Ripley, which led to a 6-3 victory. For the game, Morris was 2 for 3 with a homer, a double and four RBIs — and followed it with a 3 for 4 performance in the nightcap.

The rest of the Warriors got in on the home run action in the championship match later in the day.

Ripley’s offense collected 14 hits, including belting three home runs, to roll to an 18-5 run-rule victory.

Greenfield, who had struck out five in the first two innings of Friday’s game, hit a three-run home run in the top of the first to set the tone. He went on to go 3 for 4 with a double and six runs batted in — finishing a triple shy of the cycle.

Chandler Salinas contributed a two-run home run, while Garrett Gosney was 2 for 2 with a two-run blast, as well. Houston Twoguns went 2 for 3 with a double.

So hot was the Ripley offense that No. 9 hitter, freshman Dylon Moore, got in on the action. Moore, who coach Donnie Hoffman said has been swinging a hot bat of late, was 2 for 4 with a pair of doubles and four RBIs.

Cory Sadler picked up the win on the mound for Ripley, going all five innings in the rout.

The Warriors (12-4) return to the diamond Monday for a home game with Pawnee. First pitch is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
