A four-run fourth-inning rally and stellar pitching from Hayden Blanford and Landon Rayner led the Evergreen baseball team to a 4-0 win Monday over Kelso, sending the top-ranked Hilanders to their first defeat of the season.

The win, which was the 11th straight for the Plainsmen, kept Evergreen in the hunt for the 3A Greater St. Helens League title. Evergreen meets Kelso again Tuesday in Kelso, and then the two teams complete their series Thursday back in Evergreen.

Kelso needs to win one of the next two to secure the 3A GSHL title.

In the fourth inning, singles by J Marin and S Heys plus a walk to K Cook loaded the bases for Evergreen. Cade Livingston, the No. 9 hitter, put Evergreen on the board with a sacrifice fly.

Rayner follwed with an infield single to score Heys. Cook then scored on a wild pitch before Ryno Oldham Catabay capped the rally with an RBI single.

Blanford held Kelso to one hit over 3.1 innings. Rayner finished off the win with 3.2 shutout innings, allowing four hits.
