Helper tops Springville for road region win

Consistency at the plate propelled the Helper Merchants past Springville 8-5 on the road Wednesday night in the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams.

One day after falling 4-3 at home, Helper traveled to Springville with the hopes of earning a series split. While both teams found success at the plate, it was the Merchants that had six different players record at least one hit.

Kade Dimick ended 2-4 with two singles and three runs to lead the offensive explosion. Jordan Wright contributed two singles and one RBI in a 2-3 effort. Nathan Richins, Jacob Vasquez, Keaton Rich and Rylan Hart all registered one hit a piece.

Dimick also earned the win on the mound, rounding out a solid all around effort as Helper picked up a much needed win.

Now 4-3 overall on the season and 1-1 in region play, Helper will take Thursday night off before returning to the field Friday for a double-header against Salem Hills.

Originally scheduled for a home-and-home set for the two teams, Salem Hills will now travel to Helper for the double-header. The first contest is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m., with the second following immediately after at 6:00.

Following Friday’s set, Helper will take the remainder of the weekend off before hosting Maple Mountain in a double-header Monday.
