It’s time for this week’s edition of Heavy Hitters.  Every Monday, we'll recap the nine most scintillating hitting performances from the past week of competition.

Why nine?  Because there's nine batters in the lineup.

I should note that these are single-game performances only.  I don't have the math skills to pull off calculating weekly totals.

With that said, here's our list of Idaho baseball's Heavy Hitters, from the week of April 3rd to April 8th.  The performances will be listed in chronological order.

1. Easton Vivier, Fr, Mountain Home

The Tigers found themselves in a slugfest with Kimberly in a non-conference showdown on Tuesday, April 4th, ultimately prevailing 16-12.  Vivier led the charge, finishing 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, five RBIs and two runs scored.  The freshman added a stolen base for good measure.

2. Ty Koepp, Jr, Kendrick

Kendrick picked up a critical Whitepine League win on Tuesday, April 4th, with a 2-0 nail-biter over perennial power Prairie.  Koepp’s fingerprints were all over it.  Not only did he pitch all seven innings in the victory (making him a tough omission on this week’s Primetime Pitchers list), but he also was responsible for both of the Tigers’ runs on offense, as well.  Koepp finished 3-for-3, and considering that Kendrick had four hits total, he accounted for 75% of Kendrick’s attack.  Koepp also stole two bases and scored both runs in a close win.

3. Kyson Barden, Sr, Lewiston

Barden only tallied one hit in the Bengals’ 10-1 win over Moscow in Inland Empire League play on Tuesday, April 4th.  But boy, did he make it count.  Barden went 1-for-2 on the day, and his lone hit cleared the fence for a home run.  He also drew a walk, and finished with four RBIs in total.

4. Cooper Thompson, So, Twin Falls

Thompson sizzled during the Bruins’ 11-1 Great Basin Conference win over Wood River on Wednesday, April 5th.  In five plate appearances, the sophomore reached base four times, finishing 2-for-3 with a home run, a triple, four RBIs, two walks and two runs scored.

5. Grady Daniels, Jr, Skyview

The Hawks soared in a 28-1 victory over Vallivue on Wednesday, April 5th in a Southern Idaho Conference battle.  Daniels was a perfect 5-for-5 at the dish, and hit for the cycle, finishing with a single, two doubles, a triple and a home run.  Daniels also scored all five times he reached base, and finished with an astounding eight RBIs.

6. Jayme Ramos, Jr, Buhl

Ramos attends Castleford High, and is a standout football and basketball player for the Wolves.  But Castleford doesn’t have a baseball team, so Ramos heads over to Buhl to play, and the Indians welcome him with open arms.  Especially after games like Buhl’s 12-2 win over South Fremont at the Buhl Midseason Classic on Friday, April 7th.  Ramos went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, three RBIs, two runs scored and a stolen base.  For good measure, Ramos also went 2-for-2 with seven RBIs in an 18-2 win over Teton later in the day.

7. Davon Inglet, Sr, Preston

The Indians haven’t been able to play much this year, due to inclement weather, but on Friday, April 7th, Preston looked the part of a seasoned team with plenty of action under their belts in a 14-3 win over Shelley.  Inglet led the charge, finishing 3-for-4 with four RBIs, two runs scored and a stolen base.

8. Clayton Elsbree, Sr, Wood River

Wood River performed well at the Buhl Midseason Classic this past weekend, going 4-0 at the tournament.  Among the victories was a 15-0 decision over American Falls on Friday, April 7th.  In that contest, Elsbree went a perfect 3-for-3 with a home run, a double, a walk, six RBIs and four runs scored.

9. Cooper Smith, Jr, Lake City

The Timberwolves picked up an Inland Empire League win over Moscow on Saturday, April 8th by a score of 18-8.  In the win, Smith went 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBIs, and a run scored.
