Emery Baseball Splits, Advances

Emery split its pair of State Tournament games on Saturday in Cedar City to advance to the tournament’s third round.

Geren Payne helped the Spartans to an 8-7 victory over Wasatch by recording the win in game one.

After an error-laden sixth inning helped Wasatch take a 7-6 lead, Emery plated two runs in the seventh inning and held on for victory.

Kash Jewkes led the offense with a home run and double. Nick Stoddard and Tappan Draper also recorded doubles, and Nathan Mecham slammed a triple.

A Spartan error in the first inning led to six Canyon View runs in game two, and Emery was unable to recover. Canyon View won the game 7-1.

Emery will meet Cedar High in the one-loss bracket at 1:30 on Thursday at Dixie High School in St. George.
