Weston– In a very well-played, well-pitched baseball game, the host DC Everest team bested the visitors from Wausau West, 4-1 on Tuesday afternoon.

Ty Tretter pitched a complete game, only allowing two hits.

DCE head coach Dave Langbehn agreed that this was a terrific showing for his team.

“That was by far the best game we’ve played. We obviously didn’t hit like we would like, but give their pitcher credit, he kept us off stride. But we played such good defense, backing up the pitching, and reduced the number of pitches that Ty had to throw.”

“We also did the little important things, like moving runners, bunting well, sacrificing and doing the little things.”

West pitcher Mitch Zahurones threw another solid game, but did not get any support from the hitters.

“It’s becoming another game where we didn’t support Mitch, he deserved better,” said West coach Ryan Whalen.

In the fourth inning, Zahrones lined a single to left field for the first hit in the game and was plated by Luke Hamann’s single to left to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

Everest would not waste any time to take the lead in their half of the fourth.

Owen Lantendresse singled and Brady Sendelbach walked to open up the inning. After two wild pitches, Latendresse scored on a fielder’s choice by Jackson Miles.

Latendresse would score later on a sacrifice fly by Hunter Gipp.

Everest added two insurance runs in the fifth when Nolan Hoppe singled, and was advanced to second on a sacrifice but by Brady Paiser.

Cade Sivertson reached on an error and both were driven home on a scorching liner to left by Brady Sendelbach .
