South Hills wins in 11 innings
: Junior Johnny Dearth of South Hills came up big for his team on Wednesday, in more ways than one.He started Wednesday’s Palomares League showdown for first place against Bonita at first base, but was called on to pitch in the sixth inning, and he had to go nearly five innings.
If that weren’t enough, he added a two-run double in the 11th inning for the decisive runs as the Huskies prevailed 7-4 over their biggest league rival. The win puts South Hills (16-7, 9-1) alone in first, although the teams play again on Friday.
“The most difficult thing is going from one mentality to the other,” Dearth said. “At the plate you’re up there to do the opposite of what you’re doing when you’re on the mound.”
South Hills, ranked fourth in this week’s CIF Division 2 poll, went ahead 4-2 with three runs in the third, aided by a Bearcats error. There were doubles in the inning by Jacob Amaya, Jacob Dominguez and Quinn Cotter, each driving home a run.
