Homer 6, Soldotna 5

The Mariners scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning with the bases loaded. Soldotna pitcher Clayton Justice walked four Homer batters in the inning and the Mariners went from trailing 5-4 to winning the game 6-5 in the inning.

SoHi managed to score a “few timely hits,” according to coach George Stein, including from Justice and Justice Miller.

Tyler Covey went the first four innings on the mound for SoHi, giving up four runs. The loss leaves the Stars with a 1-7 overall and Northern Lights Conference record.
