Carbon baseball grabs top spot in region
Only one top spot and there were two teams battling hard to get it. Now there is one. Carbon won the region 10 baseball title after defeating Park City in both ends of the doubleheader on Friday afternoon in Price. Both were come from behind wins. Game one was a 6-5 victory and game two was 17-12.
Game one of the double billing saw Carbon score in the first. Park City tied it up and then the Dinos scored again. It stayed that way until the sixth when the Miners put up four to go ahead 5-2. But it was the Dinos turn to tie it up and then in the final inning Beau Rich was able to get a hit to drive the winning run over the plate.
Gage Bigelow started for the Dinos and got a no decision, but Coach Troy Moynier stated he pitched a great game. Jake Nichols came on in relief and got the win.
Julian Tamllos and Seth Tryon each had a double. Daniel Peczuh was 0-3 going into his final at bat and came through with a big hit to set up the win.
Now it was down to one final game with both teams tied in the standings. Each put up a run in the first, but it was the Miners who took control of the game with a nine run third inning. Just like in their game against Union, the Dinos did not let the 10-0 deficit deter them. They began chipping away at the lead with a pair in the fourth and one in the fifth to close it to 10-3.
With only two at bats left Carbon exploded with one of their signature offensive shows and when the dust settled they had 13 cross the plate in the sixth. Park City added two to their total in the final frame, but the Dinos had done it and earned the region title.
Rich, Tamllos, Peczuh, Dylan Voginec and Keny Seals doubled in the game. Nichols was the starting pitcher for Carbon, but Bigelow came on and got the win for the Dinos.
At press time the Dinos are not sure who they will face in round one, but the one thing they do know is that they have earned home field advantage. They will play the number five seed from region 11. The first round will begin this Saturday, May 8 and will have four teams and four games.
