North Sevier had a good week of Baseball as they wrapped up the region, completing the sweep of Millard with a 3-2 win in 9 innings Tuesday.
The game started in the top of the 8th inning, Tayler Rasmussen pitched two great innings for us and Kagan Beckstead drove in Breken Mason to win the game in the bottom of the 9th. It was a big win for us and good to see our guys play well in a do or die type situation. Those are the types of games you need to win to have success in the State Tournament,” said Coach Josh Robinson.
On Thursday they played their final home game of the season against Milford. It was senior day for Brody Butler and Marshall Okerlund, two guys that have been an integral part of growing the North Sevier Baseball program the last four years according to Robinson.
“Both guys have been starters since they were Freshman and have done some big things on the diamond during their time at North Sevier. Most importantly, these two guys have been exceptional students in the classroom, role models to their teammates, and coachable young men. We are definitely going to miss them and the energy and attitude they bring every day. We know no matter what they choose to do in life they will find much success and we wish them the best of luck on their journey,” he said.
Unfortunately the team was unable to send them out with a win, losing 7-5 to Milford.
“I thought we played well and the guys competed most of the game, we just fell short in the last inning,” said Robinson. “Breken Mason struck out 9 Milford hitters and he added a double at the plate. Brody Butler was perfect from the plate going 4 for 4.”
The team will now travel to Juab on Tuesday to play their last regular season game and then wait for the RPI to come out on Wednesday to see where they travel to Saturday to play the first round of the state tournament.
