Kingston Baseball Overcomes 2-Run Deficit; Gets Comeback Win over Valley
(CALEDONIA) The Kingston Cougars baseball team overcame a 3-1 deficit to knock off the Valley Vikings Tuesday evening. Kingston scored the opening run of the game in the first inning, but the Vikings answered quickly.

What started as a clean game for the Vikings defense snowballed into a nightmare in the sixth inning, as several errors allowed Kingston to tie the game. Cody Yates made his first start on the mound for the Cougars this season and pitched all seven innings. He survived the sixth without letting up a run, and made a big play to seal a Kingston win on offense.

Yates was named the Applebee’s of Farmington Player of the Game, as he threw 85 pitches in seven innings with three strikeouts. On offense, he was perfect at the plate with four hits and three runs scored. Cougars manager Kyle Nettles tells us about Yates’ performance.

For Valley, starting pitcher Ayden Sims gets the loss. He threw 105 pitches in the effort and struck out four batters. Vikings manager Trent Hartley says errors were the deciding factor in the game.

The Vikings have now lost three in a row, and are 6-3 on the season. They’ll face Valle Catholic Wednesday afternoon. Kingston is back over .500 with an 8-7 record, and will have a day off before a battle with Fredericktown Thursday afternoon.
