Mike Imes wasn’t trying to do too much with the 0-1 offering. But the baseball, especially the way Evergreen’s batters were seeing it, looked like a giant beach ball on April 18 at Evergreen High School.
And it was flying around all over the place.
Imes smacked the floating curve ball for a third-inning grand slam — one of four home runs Evergreen hit off Conifer starting pitcher Steven Stick and the second in the inning — en route to an 18-7 victory. The game was called after five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.
