Dino might: Streak goes on
They aren't just winning, but they are destroying their opponents as they wind their way undefeated through the season.
The Carbon baseball team moved their winning streak to 13 games as they downed Union, 19-5, and, 14-3, in a pair of region games on Friday, April 9.
The team is almost halfway through their region schedule and are sitting easily in first place in the standings. In the first game Beau Rich (3-0) earned another win off the mound giving up only six hits and five runs. Carbon jumped out to a six-run first and then let the Cougars cut the lead in half. It stayed that way until the fifth when both teams popped for a run.
Then the Dinos got their bats going and put up five in the sixth and seven in the seventh. They ended the game with 19 hits.
Three Dinos went long. Clint Finkbiner,Dylan Vogrinec, and Keny Seals all found the fence for Carbon. Gage Bigelow had a pait of doubles and Julian Tamllos and Seth Tryon added a double.
In game two, Carbon wasted no time in putting up four runs to take the early lead. They scored in every inning and ended the game in five with the mercy rule. Union was only able to push a single score across in each of the middle three frames. Jake Nichols (2-0) got the win for the Dinos.
Tryon had the big bat with a home run. Keny Seals was also big with a pair of doubles and Tamllos also had an extra base hit.
For Coach Troy Moynier, it is a good place to be. But he is still wary of what may come their way, "I don't know if the competition is not that strong or that we are just that good.
"But whatever it is we are happy with where we stand. We are hitting well and our pitchers are giving us good quality innings." He added, "I was happy to see us jump out to early leads in both of these games; it really helps settle down the pitching and takes a lot of pressure off things. The only down side is that we didn't ten run the first game and save Beau's (Rich) arm in case we needed him Tuesday."
Next week Park City will take a shot at ending the streak when the two teams meet up in Kearns on Tuesday. Park City has too much snow on their field.
That game will start at 3 p.m. Then Carbon will travel to play a double header with ALA on Friday with first pitch at 2:30 p.m.
