Silo beats Oktaha 3-2, wins third straight championship

OKLAHOMA CITY - Keach Ballard hit a tie-breaking solo home run in the fifth inning, and Logan Oller pitched a complete game as the Silo Rebels defeated Oktaha, 3-2, to win the Class 2A spring baseball championship on Saturday night in Oklahoma City.

Silo trailed 1-0 after the first inning, but the Rebels tied the score in the fourth on an RBI double by Jared Sterling. Ballard's home run in the bottom of the fifth gave Silo its first lead at 2-1, and moments later, Shawn Hendricks singled home Trevor Bowen to make it 3-1.

Oktaha scored a run in the seventh to cut the lead to a single run, but Logan Oller stayed in to finish the game and the championship for Silo.

It is the third straight spring baseball championship for the Rebels, who also avenged a loss to Oktaha in the fall 2009 title game.

Earlier on Saturday, Shawn Hendricks pitched a complete game shutout as Silo beat Latta 11-0 in the semifinals.

    My son is a Rebel and has been in the district since the 6th grade!, We live in the district and have since he started! We have only 2 boys that live outside the district that have legal transfers, one has a parent that teaches the other transfered into the district in the 6th grade! Wipe the dirt from your green eyes and realize that the Rebels are a great team because they/we are a team! Teams work together on and off the field! Our motto is Champions Upholding a Legacy of Teamwork! When the rest of county/state teams learn to be teams they too will become successful. Until then you are reduced to being what you are now, jealous of a group of young men that are to be admired! My advice to all those that are jealous now, keep watching, because this group has only begun to achieve what they are capable of!!! Sooo if you are "still wondering, " there is your answer, it is all a matter of public record! Always look before you cross that road!!!

    Every boy that wears the Silo jersey is a true Rebel! They all attend Silo schools, and have always!!! It is sad that people are jealous of success, regardless of to who, it comes!!! The Rebels are an outstanding group of young men! It would do many in our area to look to the Rebels for an example of what young men are suppoesed to be!
