Vikings earn split at Carson Tournament

Randy Henson had a two-run homer, three RBIs and recorded the eventual game-winning hit in the fourth inning as South Tahoe beat North Tahoe 6-5 on Thursday in the opening round of the Carson Tournament.

Henson broke open up a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the fourth when he scored Bo Hallam, who singled to start off the inning.

In an 8-6 loss to Lassen in the second game of the tournament, Spencer Dean pitched three solid innings and totaled five RBIs off a three-run homer and a two-run double. Dean left the game with the Vikings (1-1) leading 3-2, then watched Lassen open up an 8-3 lead going into the fifth.

South Tahoe’s comeback bid fell short after scoring three runs in the final inning. Kyle Jones led off the inning with a bunt and Daniel Tinlin hit an RBI double to make it 8-4. Dean followed with his one out, two-run double, but the Vikings wouldn’t get any closer.

“I was happy that we were able to come back like we did,” said first-year coach Matt Tillson. “I think that was a good sign. Overall, I thought it was a good day.”

South Tahoe continues tournament play today with a 3 p.m. game against Sparks. The Vikings face host Carson on Saturday at 7 p.m., then finish tournament on Monday with a 5 p.m. game against Damonte Ranch.
