After jumping out to a 1-0 lead in the first in what looked to be a promising start, Gering Platte Valley Companies Seniors let momentum slip away in a 9-1 loss to the Twin Cities Wesco Zephyrs Wednesday night at Cleveland Field in Scottsbluff.

In their last meeting on June 7, Gering edged the Westco team, 8-7, with a walk-off ground out on home turf at Oregon Trail Park.

Evan Hughes stuck to his guns, getting it done on the rubber on the way to a win, allowing one run over five innings. Hughes struck out three, walked four and gave up two hits.

Twin Cities’ Gunnar Buchhammer, Carlos Felix, Max Mason and Trevor Garcia combined for six hits and four RBIs.

Trace Fulk was the game’s losing pitcher. He lasted just 1-2/3 innings, walked one, struck out none, and allowed five runs.
Carlos Palomo started out on the mound, giving up four runs in three innings of work.

Gering’s seniors managed to score one run in the first inning on an error.

The game’s last lead went to Twin Cities thanks to a third inning rally that saw three runs cross the plate on a sacrifice fly by Buchhammer.

The Zephyrs added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth. A clutch ground out scored Mason to open the scoring in the frame, which was followed by Buchhammer’s single, scoring Felix.

The Zephyrs built on its lead with three runs in the fifth. The inning got off to a hot start when Garcia tripled, plating Braden Lofink. Mason’s single followed, scoring Garcia.
