In baseball action: Otters win twice, edge Slaters, 5-4

ADDISON COUNTY — Otter Valley won twice to provide the only baseball highlights locally late last week, as Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Middlebury all lost games.
On Wednesday, the Otters edged visiting Fair Haven, 5-4. Derek Aines allowed only one earned run and got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning to earn the win. He struck out 10 and allowed eight hits and two walks. He outdueled Slater Jesse Tucker, who allowed nine hits and two earned runs.
OV scored an unearned run in the first and picked up two runs in the third on singles by Nate Hudson, Payson Williams and Josh Beayon, with Beayon’s knocking in two runs. Williams and Dominic McCullough added RBI singles in the fifth.
The 5-6 Slaters got RBIs from Cody Seaver in the fifth on a squeeze bunt and from a Tim Fyles single in the sixth.  
On Friday, Williams tossed a four-hitter and struck out nine in a 6-2 win over visiting Bellows Falls. Reilly Shannon poked two hits, scored twice and drove in a run. Williams also scored twice, and Hudson and Kollin Bissette picked up RBIs as OV improved to 6-4 and BF fell to 4-6.
On Thursday, visiting Missisquoi scored two unearned runs in the seventh inning to defeat the Eagles, 4-2. Losing pitcher George Bailey struck out six in 5.2 innings.
