Sophomore Aaliyah Gutierrez launched a 2-run home run as part of a 7-run second inning as the Guymon Lady Tigers improved to 6-2 on the season with a 14-2 win over Hooker, Tuesday.

The Lady Tigers only recorded four hits in the short, 3-inning game, taking advantage of a combined 13 walks by Hooker pitchers Morgan Maloney and Tomi Hise. Jadyn Garcia, Haeley Vasquez, Malia Moore and Gutierrez recorded RBIs, some off bases loaded walks.

Guymon initially went up 5-0 in a bottom of the first inning that included a 2-run double by Garcia.

Hooker (1-7 overall) loaded the bases in the top of the second on a Bailee Hanson double and walks by Mattie Baird and Natalie Rodriguez, but a fielder’s choice out by Ana Gomez ended the inning.

Guymon went ahead 8-0 to start the bottom of the third on passed balls and wild pitches before the Gutierrez blast.

Maloney scored on a passed ball in the top of the third and a bases loaded walk to Natalie Rodriguez scored Tomi Hise.

Chloe Browning got the win for Guymon, allowing one hit and two runs while striking out one in three innings of work. Hise took the loss for Hooker with four runs on one hit and three strikeouts. Maloney got the start, striking out two.

Guymon and Hooker will both begin play in the Beaver Tournament on Friday.
