EHS knocks off Kahoks for 20th win

Edwardsville Tiger senior Tito Rivera took advantage of his opportunity in the lineup Tuesday at Arthur Fletcher Field in Collinsville to help lead EHS past the Collinsville Kahoks 11-6.

Rivera, a senior platoon outfielder seeing time sparingly at the plate, mostly working in defensive situations and as a pinch runner, went 3 for 4 with a double, two RBIs, two runs scored and three stolen bases in the Tigers' 20th win of the season. It was the Tigers 30th straight 20-win season, as they improved to 20-1 and 8-1 in the Southwestern Conference. The Kahoks fell to 6-16 and 2-7 in the SWC.

"It's been a struggle the beginning part of the year," said Rivera, who was 5 for 20 in 2009 coming into the game. "The last couple weeks I've been really working hard and I'm feeling a lot more comfortable at the plate and that allowed me to be successful today. After the Lincoln Tournament, coach and I had a talk and I'm seeing the ball a lot better now. I'm thankful for coach's help and I'm just trying to keep plugging away."
