Bear River all-stars beat Sierra Foothills

The Bear River All-Stars outlasted the Sierra Foothills Saturday to win 10-8.

Dayton Anderson had three RBIs for Bear River at the plate while Kyle Soria pitched three innings and struck out four to help lead the team to victory.

Martin VIgil and Brett Solomon pitched in relief for Bear River, allowing only two runs and two hits over three innings and striking out four batters. Vigil had three strikeouts.

“This was a hard fought baseball game from the very start,” manager Randy Anderson said in an e-mail. “Sierra Foothills came out swinging the bats and jumped to an early lead … Our players stayed focused and took advantage of pitches to hit, coupled with smart baserunning and took, and kept, the lead.”

Isaac Van Patten went 3-for-3 for Bear River while Solomon went 3-for-4 and Vigil went 2-for-2 with a triple and one RBI.

Tyler Toft had two RBIs on 1-for-4 batting while Nick O’Conner added an RBI single to the scoring bunch.

Soria batted 2-for-3 on the day and Matt Lopez went 2-for-2. Nick Mansuetti went 1-for-3.

Mansuetti, Lopez and Toft were credited with “defensive gems,” Anderson said.
