South Salem is 7-4. Aloha is 4-10.

In a surprisingly sunny non-league contest, South Salem overcame an early deficit to beat the Aloha Warriors.

Ryan Brown got Michael Powers to groundout to lead off the ballgame, but back-to-back errors and a walk allowed Keegan Rupe, Aaron Powers, and Eben Elling to load the bases. Joe Cassidy then grounded into a fielder’s choice to plate a run. Gage Holman followed with a single to bring home another, making it 2-0 Aloha. A Payne Ashbrook grounder to Tori Doten ended the top of the first.

South answered with 3 runs to take lead in the bottom half of the frame, despite not getting a hit. Sean Alvarado led off with a walk. Tori Doten was hit by a pitch to advance Alvarado to second. After a double steal, Aaron Zavala walked to load the bases. Following a strikeout, pitcher Michael Powers attempted to pick Alvarado off of third base, who had been drawing a lot of attention, but he threw the ball out of play after stepping off the rubber, allowing Alvarado and Doten to score, and Zavala to move all the way to third base. Fredinburg then brought him home with a sac fly to center, giving South a 3-2 lead.

Ryan Brown worked out of trouble in the top of the second. Beau Hellman singled to lead off the inning, but was picked off at first by Brown. Nathan Acuavera then crushed a long fly ball to right-center field for a double. On a normal outfield, Collin Vogt would have made the play, but the mud pit that is the center field at Gilmore slowed him down just enough, allowing the ball to drop in. Powers drew a walk, and was followed by a Rupe single to load the bases. Brown then earned a strikeout and flyout to end the inning.

Both teams continued to trade zeroes until the Saxons broke out for 3 more runs in the bottom of the fifth. With 1 out, Vogt was hit by a pitch. Alvarado followed with a walk. As Alvarado was jogging to first, the Aloha pitching coach approached the field to meet with the pitcher, asking the home plate umpire for a timeout once Alvarado reached first base. An alert Vogt caught the third baseman and shortstop heading to the mound well before Alvarado got to the bag, so Vogt sprinted and slid headfirst into third base; Alvarado followed by sprinting around the bag at first and taking second base. It turned out to be a huge heads up play, as it forced Aloha to play with the infield in, allowing Tori Doten to hit a ground ball double over the third base bag, scoring both runners. Doten later came around to score on a passed ball, making it 6-2 South Salem.

Elijah Enomoto-Haole took over in relief in the 6th, and went on to record the final 6 outs to shut the door on Aloha.

South Salem is scheduled to travel to Aloha on Wednesday for a 5:00pm rematch.
