Prep roundup: Ridgerunners clip Joplin in tournament

CLAREMORE, Okla. — Justin Tesreau had three hits and drove in four runs to lead Grove High School past Joplin 9-8 in the Claremore Pool of the Tiger/Zebra Classic on Friday.

Joplin coach Kirk Harryman said the Eagles, who finished 1-2 in pool play, will play at 1 p.m. or 3 today in the tourney. Position and site — Claremore or Pryor — depends on a later result on Friday night, Harryman said.

Tesreau had a double and home run among his hits.

Joplin (2-3 overall) had 12 hits with Gavin Jones and Chris Leonardi getting three apiece. Nate Brummer and Adam St. Peter each added two hits and Jones, who tripled, drove in two runs.

The Ridgerunners snapped an 8-8 tie by scoring in the bottom of the fifth inning. Joplin tallied four runs in both the first and fifth innings.
