Cougars shut out Vikings
For the second straight day, hits were hard to come by for South Tahoe High.
The Vikings were limited to four singles as Spanish Springs won the Manogue tournament baseball game, 2-0, on Tuesday in Reno.
Unlike their 11-0 loss to Galena a day earlier, the Vikings put their bats on the ball.
“It was one of those things where we were hitting the ball hard, but they were finding gloves every time,” said STHS coach Matt Tillson, whose Vikings didn’t advance a runner past first base. “For us to bounce back after getting beat bad by Galena, I was impressed with the heart and character we showed today.”
Otto Trebotich, Derek Holmgren, Jason Winslow and Gary Prescott each singled for the Vikings.
The Cougars didn’t fare much better against South Tahoe pitchers Max DeLallo and Kyle DiGrande. Spanish Springs mustered only four hits, including a run-scoring double with two outs in the fourth. The Cougars other run came on a second-inning sacrifice fly.
DeLallo allowed four hits and two runs in his four innings on the mound. He fanned three. DiGrande struck out four and didn’t allow a hit in his two-innings
STHS continues Manogue tournament play against the host Miners at 3:30 p.m. today.
Final frame costly for WHS
Whittell High’s field became unhinged during Truckee’s seven-run seventh inning that lifted the Wolverines’ JV to a 12-4 triumph on Tuesday at Lampe Park in Gardnerville.
The Wolverines led 5-4 entering the final inning, but they scored seven unearned runs as a result of Whittell errors to pull away.
Whittell (3-2) plays twice on Friday in its tournament at Lampe Park. Game times are 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
