The visiting Homer baseball team split with Kodiak on Friday and Saturday in Northern Lights Conference play.

The Mariners are now 1-1 in the conference and 1-2 overall.

Friday, Homer notched an 11-9 victory over Kodiak in eight innings.

Kyle Johnson was 2 for 2 for Homer, while Adam Brinster was 2 for 4. Michael Swoboda, Joe Ravin, Greg Smith, Seth Adkins and Woape Huffman added hits for Homer.

Brinster pitched six innings, while Smith and Ravin each pitched an inning.

Saturday, Homer lost 14-10. Homer coach Rich Sonnen said his squad fell behind 5-1 after two innings due to baserunning errors.

“It was blowing hard and pouring down rain but we played anyway,” Sonnen said.

Homer came back to lead 8-6 after the top of the fifth, but Sonnen said the team had some crucial mental miscues in giving up six runs in the bottom of the sixth and falling behind 14-9.

He said Adkins, a freshman, and Ravin, a sophomore, did great on the mound, especially considering their youth. He said the biggest problem was defense.

Swoboda had a solo home run, while Huffman was 2 for 4. Smith, Brinster, Adkins and Landon Bunting added hits.
