Ripley baseball earns victory at Dover Festival

DOVER, Okla. — The Ripley Warriors were just a couple of miscues from opening the season with a perfect game at the Dover Festival on Thursday.

The Warriors won a 10-0 four-inning run-rule contest against Covington-Douglas in which C-D had three base runners all game — an error on the second batter of the game and two walks in the fourth — while Garrett Gosney and Cory Sadler combined for a no-hitter on the mound.

Gosney, who started and pitched three innings, recorded all nine of his outs on the mound — catching a linedrive by the first batter and then striking out eight straight batters after the Ripley error — to earn the victory. Sadler pitched the fourth inning, giving up two walks while also striking out a pair of batters.

At the plate, Donnie Hoffman's squad played small ball to get the run-rule, stringing together eight hits mixed in with two Covington-Douglas errors. The biggest hit of the night for Ripley came from Cauldin Greenfield with a three-run double.

No. 13-ranked Ripley will face Garber at 8 p.m. Friday in Drummond, as part of the Dover Festival, before a battle of top 15 squads on Saturday with a 2 p.m. matchup against No. 12 Okarche.
