Ostrander, Longhorns top Coal Ridge

Post Independent staff report
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

PEACH VALLEY, Colorado – Corey Ostrander was dealing, and Basalt produced just enough offense to nail down a 2-1 baseball win at Coal Ridge on Tuesday.

Ostrander pitched a complete game, striking out eight and holding the Titans to six hits.

Rafael Fabela rapped an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning to give Coal Ridge an early 1-0 lead, but Basalt eventually answered with a two-run fifth inning.

Kyp Schoon reached on an error to get things going for the Longhorns in the fateful frame. Ostrander followed with a double and Spencer Glasoner worked a walk.

Kenny Resch took care of the rest, plating a pair of runs with a double that put Basalt on top for good.

The Titans wasted a solid effort on the mound from Cody Walls and Nathan Terrin. The former got the start and worked five innings. Terrin worked the final two frames.

Basalt managed just three hits off the duo.

“That was just two really good pitching performances,” Coal Ridge coach Joe Bledsoe said. “Their guy threw well and Cody threw well.”

Tuesday’s game was originally scheduled to be played in Basalt, but the teams swapped home dates due to weather concerns.

They’ll meet again on May 10 in Basalt.
