DAYTON, Nev. — The South Tahoe junior varsity baseball team produced a victory on the road Tuesday — and exacted some revenge in the process. The Vikings beat Dayton 10-6, evening the season series with the Dust Devils in the teams’ second meeting.

South Tahoe (13-5, 11-3 I-A Northern) scored 10 runs on eight hits in Tuesday’s victory, led by two-hit games from Cameron McCarthy and Bryin Schouten. McCarthy finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs and one run and Schouten was 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

Cameron Milam also had two RBIs in the win, finishing 1-for-3 with a run. Andru Aquino went 1-for-2 and scored three times, Tyler Wattanachinda had a hit and Evan Brewer added an RBI and a run.

Chris Pfister threw a complete game against the Dust Devils, allowing three earned runs in 7.0 innings. The freshman struck out eight and walked one while improving to 6-1 on the season.

Last Saturday, the Vikings split a doubleheader against Fernley at Todd Fields Park. South Tahoe took the first game 8-7 before falling to the Vaqueros by a 9-3 margin, a loss that snapped a four-game winning streak.

In the first game of the doubleheader, Schouten, Wattanachinda and Matt Cain collected two hits apiece. South Tahoe’s eight runs came on RBIs from seven different players — McCarthy had a pair to lead the team.

The Vikings threw three pitchers in the opener against the Vaqueros, and Pfister picked up the win with a scoreless inning of relief. Quentin Marullo allowed seven runs (four earned) over 5.0 innings with seven strikeouts, and Ben Bushrow struck out two in an inning of relief.

South Tahoe lost the second game of the twinbill against Fernley 9-3. The Vikings were held to five hits in their second home defeat of the season.

Cain had a hit and an RBI in the loss, and Caleb Bray added an RBI in his lone plate appearance of the contest. Scott Mansfield finished with a hit and a run — Wattanachinda, Pfister and Alex Aguirre collected one hit apiece.

Aquino took the loss for the Vikings in the second game, allowing six earned runs on four hits over 2.1 innings. Brewer allowed a run in 1.1 innings of relief, and Pfister gave up two runs over 3.1 innings — both relievers struck out two batters.
