Bees, Bears stay perfect

PLEASANT VALLEY — The East Fairmont baseball team had just two innings left to overcome a 6-3 deficit when the scoreboard clicked over to the bottom of the sixth inning.

As it turned out, it only took one of those turns at the plate.

The Bees put up seven runs in the sixth inning to rally past Liberty, 10-6.

Colton Toothman doubled twice to lead the Bees at the plate. Jacob Bolander also had three hits and pitched two relief innings to earn the victory on the mound.

E.J. Trickett, Travis Gordon, Tanner Lambert, Tyler Weiss and Stanley Deavers also added hits.

The win improves East Fairmont’s record to a perfect 3-0 on the season, but first-year coach Joe Price was more creative with the math when asked about the hot start.

“We’re 1-0 on the day,” he said. “And we’re 0-0 when we come out here tomorrow.”

The Bees host Grafton today.

Polar Bears start fast, stave off rally

Fairmont Senior’s baseball team also stayed perfect Monday with a 13-10 victory.

The Polar Bears went up 9-1 and looked like they would win their second game in a row by 10-run mercy rule. But after substituting six sophomores and making a handful of fielding errors, the Polar Bears were sweating it out in the final innings.

Gage Hannah went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI. Austin Norman was 2-for-4 with two RBI. Bailey Mohr went 2-for-3. Ryan Ricer was 1-for-3 with a double. Joyce Riley was 1-for-2 with two RBI. Austin Kuhn added a hit and Johnny Keesling added an RBI.

Keesling also started the game, went three innings, allowed four hits, three runs (two earned), walked two and struck out three.

Ryan Valentine went four innings in relief, allowed seven hits, seven runs (one earned), one walk and four strikeouts.
