Description

It is not always how hard the ball is hit, but where exactly the ball lands that can change the way a ballgame ends up.

That was definitely the case when Thunder Mountain’s Peyton Harp blooped a double into shallow left field, scoring the eventually winning run in what turned out to be a 6-3 victory over Juneau-Douglas High School in softball action at Melvin Park Thursday.

“I had been struggling and I was just trying to make contact,” Harp said. “If it got into the outfield that would be awesome.”
