Sam Edson, of Imlay City, throws a strike to home plate in a Blue Water Area Conference game this spring.

IMLAY CITY — Imlay City upset host Algonac (no. 1, Division 3) by a 4-3 count in a Blue Water Area Conference varsity baseball battle last Wednesday.

With the decision, Imlay City improves to 11-14 overall and concludes BWAC play as owners of a 2-12 mark.

“It was by far the most clean and complete game our team has played this season,” Imlay City Coach Martin Barker commented. “I am super happy for the players,” he noted.

“They have put in a lot of hard work this season and haven’t always been rewarded by the result so it was great to see them get the win. Sam Edson pitched an absolute gem, we made some key plays on defense and got some timely hits. It was an excellent way to close out the BWAC schedule.”

Brady Detwiler led Imlay City with a pair of singles. Trace Dennis, Sam Edson and Travis Bush (a single each) also reached the hitting column.

Edson was the winning Imlay City pitcher. He allowed four hits over seven innings, struck out eight and walked one.
