Tiger baseball still struggling

FARMERS KORNER – The Summit High School baseball team continued its season-long struggles in a 13-1 loss to Evergreen on Monday. With the loss, the Tigers fell to 1-8 overall and 0-4 in the 4A Jeffco League.

Starting pitcher Ryan Norton contained the opposition for two innings, giving up only one run in the first. But Evergreen went on a scoring tear in the third, scoring five runs off Norton and three off pitcher Cory Olson. Olson gave up three more runs in the fifth before the slaughter rule was invoked.

“They just exploded in the third,” said first-year coach John Padjen. “We couldn’t bounce back.”

Senior second baseman David Payne went 3-3 with 2 stolen bases. Sophomore Garrison Green was 1-2 with a double and the Tigers’ sole RBI.

The Tigers face Englewood at home today.
