Wild sixth inning pushes Delta past Eielson in MAC Baseball Matchup
Two of our Interior baseball teams managed to get away from this snowfall and play a game last night in Delta Junction.
Delta won this Mid Alaska Conference Contest 15-5.
Despite what the final score may tell you, this was anybody's game heading into the sixth inning.
Delta held a 6-5 lead and then absolutely exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, securing the victory.
Dustin Hjelm knocked in four RBIs for the Huskies off of a 2 for 4 day at the plate.
Dustin Peterson went a perfect 3-for-3 at bat, bringing in one runner and scoring four times.
For Eielson, Brandon Lewis, Donovan Paul, Cody Benjamin, and Jaydenn Manibusan all finished with one RBI to share the team lead.
Pitching-wise, Dustin Peterson led the huskies with seven strikeouts in four innings, while allowing only three hits.
These two teams were scheduled ot be in action within city limits this weekend, however all Baseball games have been delayed through the 21st.
