To say Evergreen’s baseball season has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs would be an understatement.
However, the Vikings ended on the upside by putting away Fayette in a six-inning 10-0 home victory to finish the season on a high note Tuesday.
Evergreen scored without the benefit of a hit in the first as Mason Henricks was hit by the game’s first pitch, went around to third on a wild pitch and a passed ball, and scored on Jaden Adamczewski’s grounder.
The Vikings added three more in the second.
John Ruth’s two-out double to deep left was followed by an error, then Bryce Hudik’s ringing RBI single and another error bumped the score to 4-0.
Phoenix VanOstrand’s base hit started another Evergreen rally an inning later.
Sam Lubinski’s run-scoring double was followed by Ruth’s second double of the game and Josh Dowling’s RBI single to put three more on the board.
Henricks’ single in the fourth was followed by three straight walks and a wild pitch to plate two additional runs before Lubinski’s base hit that scored VanOstrand in the sixth ended it.
On the mound Teagen Pinkelman had a quality start, going the full six innings, allowing just three hits and a pair of walks while striking out four.
Porter Maginn took the loss for Fayette.
