Vikings sock five homers in 34-14 win over Falcons

Sydney Manring socked three of Teays Valley’s five home runs on Monday in a wild 34-14 win over host Fairfield Union in a five-inning Mid-State League Buckeye Division game.

The two teams combined for eight home runs on the evening.

Teays Valley scored in four of its five at-bats, starting with a five-run first inning.

Michelle Brumfield singled to left, advanced to third on a wild pitch and stolen base and scored on a single to right off the bat of Micah Mann, who advanced to third on the play due to a two-base error by the right fielder.

Reagan Mengerink followed with a single to left to score Mann and Alyssa Brown started the home run derby by smacking a 2-0 offering over the center field fence to give the Vikings a 4-0 lead.

Aimee DeWeese scored the final run of the top of the first when she reached on an error and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly to center off the bat of Alyvia Lawrentz.

Fairfield Union scored twice in its half of the first and then Teays Valley countered by sending 15 batters to the plate in the second and scoring 11 times that Mengerink capped with a three-run homer over the center field fence.

Teays Valley’s Sydney Manring (front), seen celebrating her first varsity home run last month against Logan Elm, smacked three homers on Monday in a 34-14 win over Fairfield Union in five innings.

Manring hit the first of her three home runs wit a three-run shot over the left field fence in the third and then hit her final two in the fifth, a three-run smash over the center field fence and later another three-run blast back over the center field fence.

Fairfield Union cut its deficit to 22-14 entering the fifth, but the Vikings finished the run-rule win with a 12-run frame.

Manring was 3-for-6 with 10 RBI and three runs scored and Mengerink was 5-for-6 with nine RBI and five runs scored. Morgan Cantrell, Isabel Sayre and Brown followed with four hits apiece, and DeWeese and Brumfield added three knocks apiece. Brown and Sayre combined for seven RBI and seven runs scored.

Manring earned the win for the Vikings (10-2, 4-0), who host Logan on Tuesday for a non-league game.
