For the Ardmore baseball team it was deja vu all over again Tuesday. The regularly scheduled district contest against El Reno on the road was postponed, marking the second straight week the Tigers have had a district series finale moved around due to weather. The game against the Indians will now be made up 5:30 p.m. April 28. Plenty of other local teams were in action on Tuesday, including the Plainview Indians who took on the Sulphur Bulldogs.
Plainview 5 Sulphur 0
In the opening game of the doubleheader, Plainview’s Bryce Smith put on a show pitching wise.
Smith threw a complete game shutout of the Bulldogs, allowing just one hit with two walks and six strikeouts as the Indians won.
Michael Greisman got PHS out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when he hit an RBI single to left field to score Bryce Smith.
Greisman struck again in the bottom of the third with another RBI single, this time to right field which scored Smith again to make it 2-0.
Britton Sperry brought Smith home for the third time in the game with an RBI single, before Greisman collected his third RBI hit of the game, this time a double to left field scoring Blake Barnard.
Sperry would eventually score to make it 5-0, after a sacrifice fly RBI from Clay Christensen.
Jaden Cantu took the loss for the Bulldogs on the mound, throwing an inning of work allowing two walks. Daniel Robledo threw five innings of work, allowing four earned runs on seven hits with two walks and five strikeouts.
Sulphur 4 Plainview 3
Plainview just missed out on a double-header sweep as the Bulldogs walked it off in the second game.
A walk-off RBI single from Daniel Robledo brought home Dawson Muck for the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh.
Michael Greisman made it 1-0 for Plainview in the top of the first inning with an RBI single off a ground ball to left field to score Bryce Smith.
Spencer Flatt doubled the advantage for the Indians with an RBI double to left field in the top of the fourth, before teammate Grant Voss made it 3-0 off a line drive to right field for an RBI single.
Sulphur began to chip away at the lead in the bottom of the fifth inning. First, Muck made it 3-1 with an RBI groundout to second. Then, the Bulldogs got to within one at 3-2 with an RBI single from Justin Pettifer.
Just when it looked like the Bulldogs were finished in the bottom of the seventh, they came back and tied the game. Tyler Edgar tied the game at 3-3 with an RBI groundout, before Robledo won the game with two outs.
Taiwan White got the win on the mound for Sulphur, throwing a complete game. He allowed two earned runs on nine hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
Bracken Campbell took the loss for the Indians, throwing 1 2/3 innings of work. He allowed two earned runs on three hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

Marietta 2 Dickson 1
Just one day after their four game winning streak was snapped, the Dickson Comets now find themselves with an unwanted two-game losing skid.
The Indians were scheduled to have a game against Ringling on Tuesday but that game was canceled.
Marietta was able to claim a narrow 2-1 victory at home Tuesday afternoon, thanks to a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Brayden Brasheer hit a hard ground ball which led to an error at first, allowing Chris Campos to score and make it 1-0.
Javier Sanchez then hit a sacrifice fly RBI which doubled the lead for the Indians at 2-0.
Sam Herriott scored on a passed ball for the Comets in the top of the sixth inning to cut the deficit to 2-1.
Dickson (8-10) faces Ardmore Thursday afternoon beginning at 4:30 p.m.
