Eagle Mountain All-Stars advance to single-elimination.

Eagle Mountain All-Stars advance to single-elimination

As far as game outcomes go, there was a little bit of everything for the three Eagle Mountain Baseball All-Star teams on Thursday as they registered a win, a loss and a tie in the final day of pool play.

All three teams advanced into Friday's single-elimination round of their respective Wasatch Baseball League All-Star tournaments.

The best day belonged to the 12U Eagle Mountain team, which registered a 13-10 victory over Bingham Juan Diego to wrap up the No. 2 seed in its pool.

Kaleb Horinek got things rolling for Eagle Mountain by blasting a first-inning grand slam. Still, the two teams battled to a 10-10 tie before James Carter broke the deadlock with an RBI double on the first pitch he saw in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Eagle Mountain produced plenty of offense on the evening, pounding out 15 hits and aiding its cause by stealing 14 bases. Carter (7-for-7 in the tournament so far), Preston Stewart, Aiden Clarke, Quincy Edmunds and Horinek all delivered multiple hits in the victory.

Clarke started the game on the mound, before giving way to Payne Brower, who turned in two solid innings of relief, scattering three hits in two innings. Carter also pitched in relief before Edmunds came on to earn the save by recording the last three outs.

Eagle Mountain 12U will play Copper Hills/West Jordan tonight at 7:30 at the Copper Hills fields in the first-round of single-elimination.

 

The Eagle Mountain 11U team (Aces) rallied for six runs with one out in the bottom of the final inning to record an 8-8 tie against Copper Hills. The tie earned Eagle Mountain the No. 1 seed entering single elimination, with a 2-0-1 record in pool play.

With one out, Cougar Fox started the last-inning with his second double of the game, which was followed by a single to left by Detmer Murdock and walks to Diego Roberts, Jett Oliverson and Denver Dutton. With two outs and the bases loaded, Treyson Cram delivered the key hit of the rally with a hard grounder to the right side that got by the right-fielder, scoring three runs and moving Cram to second with the tying run. Cram stole third and then scored on Crew Simpson's infield single. Simpson stole his way to third moving the potential winning run to 70 feet away, but was stranded as the final out was recorded.

Diego Roberts, Will Peterson, Cache Connelly and Denver Dutton all pitched for Eagle Mountain.

Eagle Mountain 11U will play Riverton tonight at 5:30 in Herriman in the first round of single elimination.

 

Eagle Mountain 10U (Reapers) was defeated 11-3 by Riverton. Despite the loss, Eagle Mountain finished pool play with a strong 2-1 record, good enough for the No. 3 seed in the six-team field.

The Reapers open single-elimination play tonight at 7:30 in Riverton against Bingham. It should be a great matchup as the two teams played a 9-8 thriller on Wednesday during pool play, in a game that saw the potential tying run tagged out at home to end it.
