Arms and bats came together for the first time this season for the Kingfisher baseball team.

Anadarko paid the price. The Jackets swept the Warriors 13-0 and 10-0 in five-inning run rule games Monday at Homier Field to begin their District 4A-4 slate.

In grabbing their first two wins of the season, the Jackets got their two best offensive outputs and also saw a pair of no-hitters tossed.

The opener saw one delivered by Dallen Barton as he struck out 11 Warriors batters without surrendering a walk.

Jett Braun followed with a 14 strikeout performance while walking just two.

Braun had two hits, two stolen bases and scored a run in the initial victory.

Up 3-0 after two innings, the Jackets put the game away with a seven-run third.

After taking advantage of multiple errors and free bases surrendered by the Warriors, KHS got back-toback- to-back run-scoring hits.

Barton delivered an RBI double before Tanner Parker followed with a single that brought home another.

Eli Johnson capped it with a single to center for another run to push the score to 10-0.

The Jackets had 10 hits in the game.

Barton and Parker joined Braun with two each. Parker drove in two runs.

KHS had 12 hits during Braun’s no-hitter.

This time it was a ninerun second that did much of the damage.

Barton, Johnson and Bode Williams each had two-run hits in the inning.

Damien Haynes, Braun, Johnson and Barton collected two hits apiece.

The Jackets were 2-5 after the wins.

They were set to play Thursday and Friday in the Edmond Spring Break Festival before returning home Monday to host Western Heights in more district matchups.
