Carbon High Dinos baseball leave Colorado with wins
A three game road swing across the border into Colorado was just what the Dinos needed. They came away with three wins over some very good teams. Moffat, Colo., was the first victim with Carbon beating them 9-5 on Friday. On Saturday they beat Palisades 11-6 and then followed that up with an explosive fourth inning against Delta, Colo., to take a 17-0 win. .
Derek Young got the first win on the mound for the Dinos Friday. Moffat jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but that would be the only frame that Carbon didn't score in as they pounded out 14 hits and nine runs.
Bryce Blackburn and Kayden Fiechko hit doubles and Jaren McCourt pounded out a three bagger. Dylan Vogrinec went 4-5 and drove in 5 RBI's including a home run.
Saturday had Palisades took a 2-0 lead in the second before the Dinos came back with a 6-run third. Going into the final frame with a slim 7-6 lead, Carbon pounded out another four runs to ice up the game.
The Dinos had 10 hits and 11 runs in the win with Fiechko and Voginec blasting doubles and Clint Finkbiner going deep. McCourt got the victory on the mound.
In the final game Carbon took a four run lead in the first, but good Delta pitching kept them in check for the next two innings.
But when a new hurler took the mound, the Dinos teed off for 13 runs to finish the game in five. Voginec had his second homer of the road swing while Blackburn and McCourt added doubles. The team put up 13 hits and 17 runs and no errors in the win.
"I told them its easier to win when you don't make mistakes" Coach Troy Moynier said about the solid defense the Dinos had all weekend. "We played much better than down in St George. To say Dylan (Vogrinec) had an great weekend at the plate was an understatement, I think he batted 1.000 for the weekend. He never got out."
The Dinos head to Uintah on Friday for a non region game. That game may take place in Price if the Uintah field is not playable. The location of the game will be in Thursday's paper and on the Sun Advocate website if changes are made.
