Wolverines fall to league leaders South Tahoe
The Truckee baseball team on Wednesday hosted South Tahoe in a pivotal league matchup between two of the top teams in the Northern League.
The Vikings jumped out to an early lead, taking advantage of a wild pitch and an error to claim a 3-0 lead after the first inning. From there, South Tahoe never looked back, piling up runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings on the way to an 8-2 victory.
The Wolverines were limited to four hits in the game. The lack of production at the plate was compounded on the field with the team committing four errors.
Junior Dylan Sumner led Truckee with two hits, including a triple, and an RBI. Senior Cody Zachariasen also hit a triple. Senior Tyler Lamperti drove in Truckee’s other run. From the mound, Lamperti struck out five batters and gave up four runs.
Truckee (12-7, 8-6 West League) will look to bounce back today at home against Sparks (12-8, 8-4 West League). The teams will play at 3 p.m., and then again on Saturday in a doubleheader, beginning at 11 a.m.
