South Sevier High School
Thirteen teams entered the 2A state baseball tournament, and now only three remain.
With a 12-5 win over sixth-seeded Parowan in the winners bracket Friday evening at Kearns high school, the South Sevier Rams advanced to the 2A state championship game, where they will either face Parowan again, or Kanab — who won it’s matchup with Enterprise 9-6 Friday night to keep its hopes of playing for a championship alive.
Unlike its quarterfinal game just a day earlier — where it trailed Kanab 8-0 through 4 ½ innings — South Sevier was the side that jumped out to a fast start in the battle of the Rams.
Bats heated up quickly for South Sevier, which notched five hits on its first six at bats. The top-seeded squad rattled off eight runs in the first two innings, all while keeping Parowan off the board.
After charting unfamiliar territory in its prior game against the Cowboys, the Rams found themselves in a position much closer to home with an early onslaught of runs.
“That’s the kind of game that we want to play and that’s the kind of game that we’re used to playing,” South Sevier head coach Eric Baker said.
“We came out hot early…and I think you saw a similar approach today that we saw in those last couple of innings (against Kanab). We were disciplined and we made them work to try and beat us.”
Facing pitchers that they knew liked to attack the zone, Baker said that his players excelled at waiting for the right pitch, and then making contact with the bat.
