During a season when Frontier League baseball teams can’t score too many runs, West Valley’s Tyson Sohns pitched a dandy.
His four-hit, 12-strikeout 5-2 victory that evened WV’s record was an aberration in a league where teams have scored in double figures 13 times.
“Just when we talked about scores, this happens,” said Eagle coach Ray Riggin. “It’s amazing how well you can play when a pitcher gets ahead in the count and there are no errors.”
Sohns’ victory got the team back into the chase behind surprising East Valley.
The Knights scored 12 runs or more in four games to lead the league at 5-1. Included were 12-10 and 25-10 wins over WV.
Hot-hitting Brock Rogers has had 16 hits and 14 runs batted in for the Knights.
Not to be outdone, Eagle Tim Eklund has gone 14 for 20 in six games. At one time he was 13 for 15, including one 9-for-9 stretch.
