Davis Tolar hit two home runs and Caleb Waters pitched a two hitter over four innings as Weston beat Castor 13-1 to continue their streak of winning by the “ten run rule” in all twelve of their victories this season.
A six run, second inning after the Wolves opened the contest by plating a pair broke the game open. Five more in the fourth put Castor away. The Wolves, ranked #1 in Class B, now stand at 12-4 on the year while former district foe Castor fell to 1-10 on the year.
Waters gave the Wolves a first inning lead when he singled in Bryce Zehr who had opened the game by getting hit with a pitch and stealing second. Cooper Delaney double the lead with a two out single.
Weston poured in on in the top of the second as Colton Blundell singled and Kaden Shirley doubled with one out. Tait Henderson followed with a two out walk and both he and Shirley scored on Waters second hit in as many innings. Davis Tolar then turned on an 0-2 pitch for a two run “jack” setting up three straight singles by Delaney, Drew Browning and Braden Theriot that upped the lead to 8-0.
Tolar led off fifth with his second shot of the day to almost the identical place beyond the left centerfield fence and Weston added four more with two outs three coming on Bryce Zehr’s round tripper giving him 4 RBI’s on the day.

Wolves blanked by West Ouachita
Sometimes you just have to tip your cap to an opposing player. That was what Weston had to do to Logan Clampit after the West Ouachita hurler struck out seven and limited the Wolves to just four singles in the 4-0 loss. Clampit also helped his own cause by hitting a double and scoring a run. Kaden Shirley took the loss despite allowing only six hits and suffering through a first inning where two runs scored on passed balls and a sacrifice fly. The loss dropped Weston’s season record to 12-5 while Class 5A West Ouachita improved to 9-12 on the year.
