Taking the tournament

May 08, 2013 - The Wolves took down three teams in the Roy Warner Classic tournament on Saturday to take home the crown.

"It was a nice to go out there and win," said senior Ryan Slaugher. "It was a lot of fun, too. We played well."

The Clarkston Varsity Baseball team beat Lahser in the championship game in five innings, 12-2. Alex Peck had three hits against Lahser.

They also had a shorter game against Birmingham Groves with a 15-0 win in three innings. Jacob LaPorter scored three runs in the game. They also beat Waterford Kettering, 9-4.

"We played really well," said Phil Price, head coach. "Weston Sielaff pitched and did a nice job. Everybody got to play and everybody hit the ball well. Slaughter had a great day. Our kids came to play and we did everything well."

He added a nice bonus to the day was Roy "Pops" Warner came to the tournament.

"It was nice to see him," Price smiled.

The boys followed it up with a double header against Oxford on Monday. They won the first game 10-8. The boys took the lead and Oxford tied it at eight points. The Wolves came back for the win with two runs.

The boys took the lead in the second game in the top of the second inning when Blake Rehahn hit a double and brought in one run. Mitchell Smith was next to score off his hit putting the score, 2-0.

Oxford caught up and led the game at the end of the fifth inning, 8-2.

The Wolves put up a fight in the seventh inning with a double from Slaughter with two RBIs and a hit from Joe Popp with two more runs.

The game ended on account of darkness before the Wolves could continue the momentum with two runners on bases with one out

"It is a lesson for our kids," said Price. "They can't wait until the end of play."
