Emery’s Kaden Fieschko went 3-4 with a double Friday against non-region foe Manti to lead the Spartans over the Templars 6-4.
Geren Payne and Colton Collard also doubled as Emery ran its unblemished record to 2-0. Jordan Cox picked up the win for the Spartans.
Emery coasted into the sixth inning with a comfortable 6-1 lead, but Manti plated three in top half of the inning to cut the Spartan lead to just 2, 6-4. Emery would win the game by the same margin.
Emery will next travel to Cedar City tomorrow for a matchup with the Redmen before embarking on a trip to Montrose, Colorado for a three-game tournament Friday and Saturday.
