Baseball Fairmont 5, Worthington 4 FAIRMONT -- Trailing 4-0 through five innings Friday, the Fairmont High School baseball team scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to edge Worthington 5-4.

The Trojans played well, said head coach Brian Iverson. But the Cardinals couldn’t be held down and they dropped WHS to 1-6 on the year.

“They never hit one ball hard, but everything found a hole,” Iverson said.

Dalen Keltgen earned the mound win in relief.


Michael Iverson had two hits and an RBI for Worthington. Daniel Pavelko had a single and two RBIs. And Ben Rogers also drove in a run.

Eight of the nine Worthington batters in the lineup got at least one hit. The Trojans had runners on base in every inning.
