It’s one of the best baseball games Liberty has ever played, Eagles coach Jeff Crane said.
With a 5-4 victory over Loudoun Valley, Liberty ended the Vikings’ 19-game winning streak Monday and upset the defending Class 3A state champions.
“That will go down in Eagle baseball history,” Crane said. “This was one of the most exciting Liberty baseball games in recent memory. I am very happy for our guys.”
The Eagles (4-6) scored five runs in Bealeton against a Loudoun Valley team (11-1) that had allowed only three runs over its previous 11 games this season and outscored those opponents by 7.3 runs per game. The Vikings began this season with an 11-game winning streak after finishing last season on an eight-game winning streak, including a 9-1 win over Poquoson in the Class 3A state final.
Vikings ace pitcher Justin Ager (committed to Yale) suffered his first loss of the season after allowing six hits to Liberty. Michael Wigglesworth had two singles while Ryan Fogle, Tyler Colwell, Bailey Russell and Dylan Ramirez had one each.
Eagles pitcher Tyler Dueling picked up the win by allowing two earned runs on four hits while striking out two over five innings. Fogle and Brock Smith closed out the game as relief pitchers.
