Capital tops Bonneville for third place in 5A

Capital High School scored the game-winning run on an error in the bottom of the seventh to beat Bonneville 4-3 in the 5A high school baseball state tournament third-place game Saturday at Capital High School.

The game was tied entering the bottom of the seventh when Payton Hamilton reached on a one-out single to center. Hamilton moved to second on a passed ball and to third on a sac fly.

Grayson Sterling hit a ball to short that was mishandled by Thomas Alexander, allowing the winning run to score.

The Bees scored a run in the third when Tavyn Lords reached on an error, moved to third on another error and scored on Andrew Olaveson’s groundout.

Bonneville added two more in the fifth when Easton Dahlberg (walk) and Olaveson (double) scored on a single from Bruer Webster and a bases-loaded walk from Thomas Alexander.

Randon Hostert was the tough-luck loser despite allowing just one earned run on six hits with one walk and 11 strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

The Bees finished the season 22-9.
