Orem • Lone Peak did almost everything one could want in a baseball season, including winning its region and getting to the top of the regular-season rankings.
But American Fork, while finishing second to Lone Peak in Region 4, managed to beat the Knights five of the six times the two teams met in 2016.
Yeah, you could say the Cavemen had their number. And that number was one.
With a 13-9 victory Friday night, American Fork grabbed the first-place trophy for Class 5A after beating Lone Peak for the second time in the same day.
"It's fun. We did it five times this year and the fifth one was as hard as any," said American Fork's Mick Madsen, who pitched the last five innings of the nightcap. "Especially at this point when you're facing Seth Corry, it's awesome to beat those guys."
