Cougars maul Dino baseball squad

Sun Advocate sports reporter

Things were looking good for the Dino baseball squad after four big wins in Colorado, but that all changed on Friday as the Union Cougars came to town and handed Carbon a 10-5 loss to end pre-season play on a down note.

The Dinos actually led the game 4-1 through four innings. They dodged trouble after committing a few miscues and things looked good. But in the fifth Union capitalized on defensive woes of the Carbon in-field and parlayed them into three runs to tie things up.

Six more Union runs crossed the plate in the sixth inning to ice things up. The Dinos were not able to push anything else across except for a single run in the seventh as they went down hard to the Cougars.

Two things led to the winning streak's demise for Carbon. They committed seven errors in the game and they left 11 runners stranded on base. They also were only able to post six hits in the game compared to Unions 11 hits and two errors.

"It's the story of our season," commented Coach Troy Moynier after the loss. "We either play really good ball or fall apart. The errors seem to be contagious once we start making them. Our pitching got the job done they were supposed to do, but our defense didn't. You can't make seven errors and leave 11 stranded (on base) and win a game against anyone."

Region action begins and now the wins and losses all count. Delta is the first opponent in the Dino sights with a game Tuesday in Delta.

Carbon returns home to take on Salem Hills on Friday with the varsity game at 3:30 p.m.
