Blue Hill—In the only game the George Stevens varsity baseball team could squeeze in the past week in between rainstorms, the Eagles came from behind to win 9-8 in the ninth against the Orono Red Riots (2-2) on their home field on Saturday, April 29.
“We did pull out a great win,” Coach Dan Kane said.
Lagging 6-1 at the end of the third inning, the Eagles went on a six-run spin in the fourth, helped by a double by Marshal Lebel, and then a three-run double by Jake Keenan.
After Orono tied the game 7-7 in the fifth, neither team could bring a player home until the bottom of the ninth. The score tied, with George Stevens at bat in the bottom of the ninth, Lebel led with a double and was brought home by a game-winning single by Ethan Vinall.
At 4-0, the Eagles remain undefeated in early season games, with wins against Sumner, Ellsworth and Washington Academy.
The Eagles play on Friday, May 5, at Dexter (3-1) and on Monday, May 8, at Deer Isle-Stonington, who have managed to play just one game so far this season.
