Vikes fall to Manogue
South Tahoe High’s baseball team allowed eight runs in the sixth inning, losing the third-place game at the Bishop Manogue tournament to the hosts, 19-12, on Saturday.
Tahoe was ahead, 12-11, going into the bottom of the sixth. Viking reliever Greg Bruso tossed the fateful final frame, allowing two walks and five hits, including the game-winning home run. He said it wasn’t so much Tahoe’s defense as it was Manogue’s good fortune that decided the contest.
“I was feeling good. Our infield was in and they got two (hits) over the shortstop. They were pretty weak hits. Only one of them was solid,” he said. “There wasn’t much talk after the game. I thought we did well.”
Tahoe’s Chris Barna busted out at the plate, belting two dingers while collecting four RBIs. Adam Heggen, Bret Uppendahl, Scott Fair, Carson Triggs and Scott Souers each had two hits.
The Vikings (5-9, 1-6 league) travel to Lowry on Thursday.
South Tahoe High’s softball team got its second win of the season last weekend in the Bishop Manogue tournament.
The Vikings outlasted Hawthorne, 9-2, with the help of 10 hits. Kelly Patterson had a double and two RBIs, while Megan Humphreys, Missy Johnson and Amy Johnson added two hits apiece. Amy Johnson fanned four and walked the same for the win.
“They really came alive and finally some things starting dropping,” said Tahoe coach Jan Johnson. “The kids were heads up in the field. I was our first errorless game of the year. We’re really pleased.”
Tahoe also dropped a pair during the weekend, falling 6-3 to Quincy and 16-0 vs. McQueen.
The Vikes (2-11, 0-5 league) travel to Sparks on Tuesday.
