Men's Baseball: American rallies for a tight win
Submitted By Denny Martinez and Max Preps
The Irvington Vikings Varsity could not stop an American Eagle seventh inning rally in 3-2 loss on April 10 at Irvington. American had jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first. American's threat began with a single by Walter Ott. A stolen base then moved Ott from first to second. Knox singled, scoring Ott.
Devin Martinez led the Irvington Vikings Varsity's offensive threat, as he reached base three times in the game; he singled in the first and fifth innings. Justin Weightman was a workhorse on the hill for the Vikings. Weightman allowed two earned runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings of work. David Collins recorded the win for the Eagles. He allowed one run over five innings; struck out one, walked two and surrendered four hits. American closer Joey Hockett put away the final three outs to record the save.
