JUNEAU, Alaska (KINY) - It was some wild and wooly baseball over the weekend in Sitka – as Sitka High School’s Wolves hosted Thunder Mountain in a 3 game series! The Wolves took the series two games to one.
Friday night, Sitka High’s Dayton Cropper went two for three and Ky Stockel 2 for 4 with four R-B-I’s to lead the Wolves to a 6-3 win. Saturday’s rainy double header turned into a marathon – both games going over three hours!
In the Saturday afternoon end of the twin bill Sitka High and Thunder Mountain battled it out for ten innings! Thunder Mountain scored five runs in the top of the tenth to all but put the game away – but the Wolves staged a furious comeback in the bottom of the tenth – with Bryce Kelly getting a clutch two run single to give the Wolves a dramatic 12 to 11 victory. Sitka’s Dayton Cropper led the offense with a three for six performance and 5 R-BI’s. Then in the Saturday doubleheader nightcap – Thunder Mountain’s Bobby Cox knocked in five runs to help the Falcons to a 16-12 win – in a wet and wild game – with 21 total walks and many lead changes.
In between games of Saturday’s doubleheader 6 graduating seniors on the Sitka High baseball team were honored – Caleb Suarez, Ky Stockel, Dayton Cropper, Oliver Moore-Baker, Eric Coonradt and Jorin Yokum – all suited up for their last game on their home field.
This Friday the regional boys baseball tourney gets underway in Ketchikan – and the lady softball tourney gets underway in Juneau. Live play by plays from both tournaments will be available on 12-30 KIFW!
