BYRON — The Hayfield baseball team lost 5-1 at Byron (2-0 overall, 1-0 HVL) Tuesday.

The Vikings (2-1 overall, 2-1 HVL) took a 1-0 lead in the first and they had a chance to go up two in the second when Cam Rutledge laced a single into right field with two outs, but Carter Pesch was thrown out at the plate as he was trying to score from second.

“It took a perfect throw and their right fielder made one,” Hayfield head coach Kasey Krekling said. “We kind of lost a chance to gain some momentum on that one.”
