After seeing their two-game winning streak snapped on the road against Oklahoma Christian on Thursday, the Plainview Indians put themselves on the verge of something they haven’t done in two years on Friday.

Plainview easily handled the Durant Lions on the road by a score of 12-1 in five innings, putting them one win away from their first 20-win season since 2017.

The Indians scored two runs in the top of the first inning, before the Lions came back with a run to make it a 2-1 contest.

However, the Indians were in no mood to allow a comeback as they scored three runs in the top of the second, before blowing the game wide open with seven runs in the top of the third to seal the victory.

The highlight of the third inning was Jake Guerin stepping up and blasting a two-run home run to left field, which made the score 9-1 at that point. 

Geurin finished 3-for-3 at the plate with two RBI’s and two runs scored. 

Payton Webber also had two RBI’s in the game while going 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

Layne Davis, Britton Sperry, Trevor Burton, Bryson Stricker, Owen Lassahn and Braden Landis each finished with one RBI in the game for Plainview. 

Parker Wallace got the win on the mound for the Indians, throwing four innings. He allowed just one earned run on three hits with two strikeouts.

Stricker pitched one inning in the game, allowing no hits with no walks and one strikeout.

Plainview will play its final district road game of the season on Monday against Ada, before finishing out district play on Tuesday at home against the Cougars.
