Dinos come up short again
The last time the two teams met, Juan Diego had its way with the Carbon Dinos.
This time Carbon really came to play. Even so they couldn't overcome one of the best teams in the region and lost 12-6 on Thursday night.
It looked like another blowout for Carbon when they found themselves down 11-1 going into the fourth inning. But to their credit, the team dug deep and found some offense and hit the Soaring Eagle with a four spot to move it to 11-5. Both teams posted only one more run as the defenses settled down and Juan Diego walked away with another victory.
Coach Troy Moynier was very happy that the team found its stroke, albeit a little too late to get the win. Carbon matched the Soaring Eagle with 12 hits apiece.
Keny Seal sent one deep. Beau Rich had two sail over the fence on the night.
"I am exited about how they were hitting," he said. "They got some good hits off a really good pitcher. They were down, but battled back and made it interesting. We had much better hitting in our last two games. We actually hit and moved the runners around. We need that going into the play-off."
Carbon finished off the regular season with a Monday home game against Salem Hills.
Scores and highlights will be in the Thursday edition of the Sun Advocate.
