Otter Valley baseball tops Mill River in five
NORTH CLARENDON — The Otter Valley Union High School baseball team opened its season this past Friday, April 5, with an 11-1, five-inning win at Mill River.
Rain postponed the Otters’ game vs. Fair Haven on Monday. Officials had hoped to move it from Fair Haven to OV because of better field conditions in Brandon, but the bad weather made it a moot point. The game was not immediately rescheduled, and as it stood on Monday OV will next take the field at home on April 20 vs. Bellows Falls.
OV pitchers Josh Beayon, Pat McKeighan and Nate Hudson combined to limit the Minutemen to two hits over five innings in the opener for both squads, and MRU’s run was unearned off Hudson in the fifth. Beayon opened with two scoreless innings, striking out four, and McKeighan also worked out of trouble to toss two scoreless frames.
OV managed just three hits, but took advantage of walks, wild pitches and other miscues, and six stolen bases to round the bases.
Beayon, Marcus McCullough and Hudson rapped the hits for OV. A Hudson single plated two baserunners in OV’s seven-run fifth.
