Davis County snapped a three-game losing streak by rallying past Central Lee 8-5 at the Mustang Sports Complex in Bloomfield on Tuesday night.
The Mustangs and Hawks each scored a run in the first two innings. Central Lee broke the tie in the fourth inning after a throwing error scored a run. Two pitches later, senior Alex Sandoval hit a two-run homer off Presley Cantrell to give the Hawks a 5-2 lead.
The Mustangs responded with four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Dalton Reeves drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. A pair of wild pitches by Central Lee pitcher Tanner DeMoss tied the game. Carson Maeder beat a throw to first on a fielder’s choice that scored a run and gave the Mustangs a 6-5 advantage.
Justin Matheney handled matters on the mound for Davis County. The junior lefty did not allow a hit in three shutout innings. He walked three and struck out four to earn the win.
Cantrell provided insurance in the sixth inning with a two-run double.
Davis County (13-5, 8-0) will put their perfect South Central Conference record on the line when they travel to Knoxville for a doubleheader on Friday.
