A wild back-and-forth affair finally tilted Tuesday in favor of Polk County’s junior varsity.
The Wolverines scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth to secure a 13-10 victory over Chase in a Mountain Foothills 7 Conference matchup at The Bottoms.
Offense reigned from the outset. Chase scored five runs in the top of the first, Polk County (2-2) answered with seven runs in the second inning. The Trojans retook the lead with four runs in the third, the Wolverines evened the game at 9-9 with a two-run third.
Chase pushed back in front 10-9 in the top of the fourth before Polk took the lead for good in the bottom half of the inning.
Daylon Bradley opened the frame with a walk, with Nick Sotomayer following with a double to left field. Karlen McEntyre followed with an infield single that scored Bradley to make it 10-10.
Sotomayer and McEntyre then executed a double steal to score Sotomayer with the go-ahead run, and the Wolverines added two more runs in the inning to secure the win.
McEntyre and Cohen Edwards each finished 3-for-4, with Kendall McEntyre and Sotomayer each adding two hits. Dustin Shook, Bryson Jones and Bradley each had a hit for the Wolverines.
Polk County is slated to host North Henderson on Thursday for a non-conference game.
