Baxter Springs went 1-1 in competition against Oklahoma teams last week.

The Lions dropped a 6-5 decision to Miami on Thursday, then defeated Fairland 6-3 a day later.

Miami got all six of its runs in the first three innings and was up 6-1 heading into the top of the fifth.

The Lions scored three runs in the top of the fifth, the key blow a two-run double by Austin Karnes.

Then in the sixth, Colton Krokroski’s two-out RBI single off reliever Matt Walker narrowed the gap to one run.

Walker closed the door, getting a grounder to shortstop Richard Bearskin to end the inning.

Walker struck out the first two Lions in the top of the seventh before yielding a single to Derrick Barnes.

The game ended with a fly ball to right.

The Dogs’ fast start in the first included a leadoff homer by Walker and a two-run double by Spencer Neal.

A five-run fourth inning by Baxter Springs was too much for Fairland to overcome in Friday‘s contest.

The Owls grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third inning on a single to left field by K.C. Jones, then made it 2-0 in the fourth on a base hit by Jared Johnson.

A misplayed fly ball off the bat of Nick Abernathy started a fourth inning for the Lions that saw them send 10 batters to the plate while scoring five times.

The Lions added a final run in the sixth.

Fairland picked up its third run in the top of the seventh on a walk by Dillon Sanford, a single by Johnson and a walk to Jones that loaded the bases. A fly ball to left by Kolton Selsor allowed Sanford to score. Johnson was cut down trying to advance to third, ending the game.

Johnson finished with three hits in the game. Kyle Crockett, who suffered the loss, doubled and Jones singled.

Austin Karnes had two doubles and Derek Barnes added two singles for the Lions.
