SoHi baseball ousts Kenai

The Soldotna baseball team run-ruled Kenai Central in five innings Tuesday at the Soldotna Little League fields, beating the Kardinals 10-0.

 

It offered the Stars a bit of relief after a 3-2 loss to Kenai in walk-off fashion two weeks ago.

“The kids were pretty excited, we felt pretty good about it,” said SoHi coach George Stein.

The win was also the first for SoHi this season, improving the record to 1-4.

The Stars’ Tyler Covey pitched all five innings with four strikeouts, and provided a crucial two-run double in the second inning, while Sheldon Nelson went 3 for 3 on the day. Soldotna scored six runs total in the second, batting through the lineup.

“The difference was they got the hits and we didn’t,” said Kenai coach John Kennedy.

Kenai started with Sam Combs on the mound, getting 2 1-3 innings out of him with nine runs (eight earned), and ended with Gabe Boyle, who pitched 2 1-3 innings. Paul Steffensen, Nate O’Lena and Boyle each provided a hit for Kenai.

The loss dropped Kenai to 2-3 for the season.
