The Homer baseball team got five runs from batters who had reached on walks in defeating Kenai Central 10-8 on Tuesday in Southcentral Conference action at the Kenai Little League fields.
The Mariners move to 2-1 in the league and 2-2 overall. Kenai, which hosts Soldotna today at 6:30 p.m., falls to 2-2 in the league and 2-2 overall.
“The freebies that scored, that’s what hurt us today,” Kenai coach John Kennedy said.
While walks, liners and grounders would eventually decide the game, it didn’t start off that way.
