Cohen Edwards prepares to cross the plate for one of Polk County's six runs in Monday's first inning

Patton JVs rally to spoil Polk’s home debut

Patton scored in every inning Monday, erasing an early Polk County lead and defeating the Wolverines 12-6 in junior varsity baseball action at The Bottoms.

Polk County (1-2, 1-1) scored six runs in the first inning and held a 6-2 advantage at that point. But Patton answered with two runs in the second, then four runs in both the third and fourth innings to complete its comeback.

The Wolverines quickly loaded the bases in their first at-bat as Karlen McEntyre walked, Cohen Edwards singled and Kendall McEntyre was hit by a pitch.

Bryson Jones followed with a single to center to score Karlen McEntyre and Edwards before Mason Beiler’s infield single reloaded the bases.

A Patton error allowed McEntyre and Jones to score, with Beiler moving to third, where he scored on Daylon Bradley’s infield single. Another Patton error and a wild pitch moved Bradley to third, and he scored from there on another Panther fielding miscue.

Jones and Nick Sotomayer each finished 2-for-2 for Polk County, with Edwards, Kendall McEntyre, Beiler and Bradley adding hits. Sotomayer also finished with four stolen bases.

The Wolverine JVs will be back in action on March 29, hosting Chase at 4 p.m.
