Bingham pounds Riverton to win 6A baseball title, 9-0

News

OREM, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – Bingham flipped the script on Riverton to win the 6A state baseball championship.

After getting shut out in the first game, 7-0, the Miners turned the tables on the Silverwolves in the championship game to win the title, 9-0.

Bingham scored six runs in the third inning, including a 3-run home run by Noah Wallick. 

Derek Soffe threw a complete game shutout, scattering four hits and striking out nine.

“It was just the adrenaline,” Soffe said. “All these guys on my back, I know they had me. There’s no other way to go out. It’s the best feeling you could ever get.”

Camden Snarr went 3 for 4 with 2 RBI, while Brandon Thomas also drove in two runs for the Miners, who won their first state title since 2013.

“We just tried to stay positive,” Wallick said about the first game defeat. “We knew we had our best guy on the bump right there, Derek. We just tried to stay positive in the mindset. We knew we had Derek, so that’s all we had to do.”

“I told them a little story about perspective that I probably won’t be able to share with you guys,” said head coach Joey Sato. “But I told them you get to play about 2 1/2 or 3 more hours with your buddies one more time. So, celebrate that and let’s have some fun.”
