Carbon baseball bounces back

Sun Advocate sports reporter

After a drubbing by region leading Juan Diego last Tuesday, the Dinos finished off the week with a decisive 11-1 win over Delta to keep themselves in good position in region eight action.

Carbon's Josh Dennison took to the mound for the Dinos and quickly sat down the first six batters in his first two innings. Good defense behind him helped make fast work of the Rabbits.

The Dinos got it going on offense in the bottom of the second as they sent eight across the plate. Delta's pitcher struggled with his control and Carbon showed patience at the plate and some solid hitting to put the Rabbits in the hole for good.

Delta strung together a couple of two out hits in the third inning, but could only send one across the plate. Carbon answered with three in the bottom of that inning to go up by 10. With no offense to speak of from the Rabbits the game was over in five innings.

Coach Troy Moynier was feeling much better about his team's performance in this game than he was when his Dinos got thrashed by the Soaring Eagle.

"We played some good defense and took advantage of the walks they gave us," he stated after the game. "We got key hits when we needed them. When we play like that we can compete with anyone in the region. It was good to see us regroup after the Juan Diego game. (With) a game like that, you just have to forget and move on."

Carbon travels to Salem Hills to take on the Skyhawks on Tuesday. Moynier feels like that will be a big game. Salem Hills is right behind Carbon in the region with two wins.

North Sanpete will play Carbon at home on Friday. Two wins in these contests would put the Dinos right in the thick of things in region pay.
