A dramatic last-inning, three-run home run over the right field fence by Dylan Eugster broke a deadlock tie against West Kelowna in last weekend’s game.

With the Reds up by three going into the bottom of the last Eugster took the mound to finish it off.

With two outs and two runners on, Eugster was pitched out and Colby Heckrodt was handed the ball to finish it off. Four pitches later, a ground ball to Caleb Seyl at second was fielded and the Reds walked off victorious.

The boys finished 2-1 in the round robin and now play a rematch against West Kelowna Red Hawks, who they faced in the Salmon Arm tournament a few weeks back for third place. A shout goes out to Connor Kociuba for winning MVP in the first game yesterday.

In that contest, West Kelowna came out with hot bats in the first inning taking a quick 4-0 lead but Salmon Arm Reds were not to be outdone and answered back with four runs of their own. Chase Henning came out and took the mound again in the second and shut down West Kelowna.

The Reds got another run in the second then handed the ball over to Colby Feist.

West Kelowna battled hard but was shut down by Feist and the Reds defence in the third and fourth. The Reds were up 8-4 going into the open inning and Feist returned to the mound to close it out. West Kelowna fought but was only able to score one run. The Reds walked off the field victorious placing third in the tournament. Feist earned a well-deserved MVP for his stellar pitching.

A fantastic performance by the entire team made for a successful weekend.
