Delta downs Demons; Boyle throws one-hitter
DELTA ” The Demons didn’t leave town without giving Delta a scare.
Delta, which has yet to drop a Western Slope League game this season, had to rally from five runs back to keep its record perfect with an 11-5 victory over Glenwood Springs in prep baseball action here Tuesday.
The Demons scored four runs in the first inning and added another run in the second inning, but the offense evaporated thereafter.
After pitching three scoreless innings, the Delta batters got to Glenwood pitcher Beau Chicione for six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Delta kept up the offensive pressure with three and two runs in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively.
Taylor Wilde paced the Glenwood offense with a 2-for-3 performance, while Matt Miller and John Faris were both 2-for-4.
Glenwood drops to 3-7 in league play, while Delta improves to a league-best 10-0.
The Demons host rival Rifle Saturday for their final two league games. The doubleheader begins at 11 a.m. at the Glenwood Springs Middle School field.
CARBONDALE ” Jake Boyle pitched a one-hitter and the Roaring Fork Rams avenged an earlier loss to Cedaredge with a 10-0 mercy-rule shortened victory over the Bruins in prep baseball action here Tuesday afternoon.
The Rams, which handed Cedaredge its only win of the season two weeks ago, got a run in the first inning and it was all Boyle would need.
The senior had 10 strikeouts in the five-inning contest and was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with a pair of doubles. Max Green also had a solid day offensively for the Rams with a 2-for-2 day.
The win is fourth-place Roaring Fork’s fourth straight and the Rams improve to 6-4 in the Class 3A Western Slope League. Cedaredge drops to 1-8.
Roaring Fork travels for a league doubleheader at Aspen on Saturday starting at 11 a.m.
