A four-run homer made the score more lopsided than it was between the HHS Dirtbags and the Oktaha Tigers Monday.
Playing in the first game of the season after a week of rainouts, the Henryetta nine lost 11-6.
Even though Oktaha jumped out to a four-run lead in the first two innings, the Henryetta team stayed in the game with a run in the first and one in the second on stolen bases.
The problem came in the third inning with the Tigers picking up seven runs. That would be their last time to cross the plate in the game.

Three of those runners got on when they were hit by a pitch and another walked.
The homer over the left field fence came on the heels of two RBI hits.
Cade Furer scored three for the Dirtbags in the game. Brannon Murphy, D.J. Jones and courtesy runner Devin Longan supplied the other scores.
Henryetta went through four pitchers. Kiley Johnson started out for Henryetta while Furer, Jones and Hunter Thomas all saw play from the mound.
Henryetta had seven hits and Oktaha got their runs on six hits.
A short second game saw Henryetta lost by a closer 5-9 margin.
The dirtbags will go to Weleetka Tuesday afternoon then travel to Kellyville March 23.
