Share on RSS


Day one of the 63rd annual Glen Winget Tournament is in the books.

The Doenges Ford Indians have started off strong, as Bartlesville got a one-run win in come-from-behind fashion against Springfield Kickapoo.

Indians topped Kickapoo 3-2.

Bartlesville trailed Springfield throughout in a pitchers dual, before the Tribe’s bats came alive in the final two frames. Down 2-0, Bartlesville tied it on a couple base hits and a walk in the bottom of the fifth. Then in the sixth, the Indians would take the lead.

Two outs and two strikes to former Nowata Ironmen Jace Thompson, when he doubled home Luke Fox to give Bartlesville the eventual win.

Pitching and defense is what kept Bartlesville in the game early.

Alan Covarrubias allowed the two runs in four innings of work. Josh Weber threw a scoreless fifth. Then it was Daniel Barham who slammed the door shut. Barham allowed two baserunners, but no runs, in the final two innings to get the win.

Here is how the final out sounded on Friday evening on KWON.

With the win and only two runs allowed, the Indians are in good shape early to make the semifinals on Monday, but will need some more wins.
