Micah Engel had two home runs, including a walk-off grand slam in the sixth inning, to lead the Horizon Christian School baseball team to a 17-7 comeback victory Monday evening at Collins Field.
The Hawks were outplayed early in the game, falling behind 5-0 at one point before coming alive offensively in the bottom of the third. Four runs in that inning, followed by a fiery eight-run fifth and another five runs in the sixth gave the Hawks the mercy-rule victory.
Ethan Evans, RJ Hicks and Kirby Carter shared time on the mound, with Carter getting the win.
Behind Engel’s two home runs and six RBI was solid hitting by Matt Totaro, who had one homer and four RBI.
Horizon is now 3-1 in its nonleague season with a Thursday game at home vs. Tillamook before league action begins with an April 12 doubleheader on the road vs. Heppner/Ione.
