EV-W baseball team halted at Holdingford

Fresh off a convincing 13-5 victory over Royalton, the Eden Valley-Watkins baseball boys headed to Holdingford Tuesday, April 22, and dropped a close one, 4-3. The Eagles had a tough time getting started, but finally rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning, knotting the game. But in the bottom of the seventh, the Huskers’ Jeremy Springer and Jake Nelson reached on errors. Mitch Merten was hit by a pitch, loading the bases. After Mitch Messman struck out looking, Jordan Gombos was hit by a pitch, forcing in the winning run.  “After we scored three in the top of the seventh, then loaded the bases with two out, we just couldn’t come up with a timely hit. It was a well-played game with Austin Schlangen and Holdingford’s 
J. Nelson locked into a 1-0 pitcher’s duel through the sixth. Holdingford was a good test to see where we are at, and hope to see continued improvement,” EV-W coach Mike Tomsche said.
