Mason Girdley hammers Atoka as Cougars sweep doubleheader

Ada —

Mason Girdley had a massive offensive day, going 4-for-4 from the plate with three triples and seven runs batted in as the Ada Cougars swept a home baseball doubleheader from Atoka, 16-5 and 8-0, Monday.

Girdley went 1-for-1 with a triple, four RBIs and two runs scored in the first game and was 3-for-3 with a pair of triples, three RBIs and two more scored runs in the nightcap.

Each game lasted just five innings due to the run rule.


ADA 8, ATOKA 0 (Game 2)

Dalton Wolf worked all five innings in firing the one-hit shutout, as he allowed just two walks and struck out nine.

Girdley’s 3-for-3 effort sparked the eight-hit attack for the Cougars. Teammate Micah Simmer went 2-for-2 and drove in a run, and Reid Kinder was 1-for-3 and knocked in a run.

Easton Pingleton also had a triple and scored a run for Ada. Walker Whitworth also had a 1-for-3 effort and scored once.

The Cougars picked up their first run in the second and added two more in the third before scoring five times in the bottom of the fifth to end it.


ADA 16, ATOKA 5 (Game 1)

Kinder, Whitworth and Tim Simpson fueled the Cougar offense in the opener as Ada compiled nine hits.

Kinder went 2-for-2, drove in three runs and scored twice, and Whitworth was also 2-for-2 and crossed the plate three times. Simpson went 2-for-3 with a double, knocked in two runs and scored twice.

Besides Girdley’s triple, Kane Moore went 1-for-1 with a double and knocked in two runs, and Scott Johnson was 1-for-2 and scored a pair of runs.

Johnson got the pitching win while surviving seven walks. He struck out three and surrendered just five hits.

The Cougars were helped by four Atoka errors.

Ada is scheduled to play next on Saturday at Harrah, beginning at 2 p.m.
