Lady Dinos bounce back from Wasatch loss to destroy ALA

The Lady Dino softball squad stumbled in their opening game of region play with Wasatch Wednesday before leaving ALA in the dust on Friday. The Wasps beat Carbon 6-3 in the first region game of the season. But on Friday the Lady Dinos made quick work as they downed the Eagles 17-1 in four innings of play.

Wednesday Wasatch jumped out with a pair in the first inning. Both teams then could not generate any offense until the fifth. The Wasps added a run in the top of the frame and then Carbon pulled it to 3-2.

But the top of the sixth saw the Wasatch lead grow to 6-2. The Dinos had chances with runners at second and third, but one got one across. In the seventh the Dinos again threatened, but with runners in scoring position could not move them home. Kenzie Cave swallowed the loss on the mound.

Coach Tony Pinedo felt like his team came out with some nerves because it was the first region game of the year.

He felt like the loss was not from lack of effort and they worked hard all game, but they left eight runners stranded and that hurt in the long run.

It brought the team down to earth from their winning streak, but Pinedo reminded them it was not the end of the world and there were lots of games ahead still to be played.

The talk seemed to help, because on Friday it was a totally different outcome. ALA made a little contact in the first. The cold wind seemed to bother the Dinos a little and they made one bad play that allowed the eagles their only run of the game.

Then Carbon showed some good discipline at the plate and after one run scores and the bases were loaded, Alexis Oliver stepped up and blasted a shot over the left center field fence for a grand slam. By the time the inning was over seven Dinos had scored.

Solid pitching backed up by tough defense made short work of any offense that ALA tried to put up. Carbon put up four more in the second, but failed to score in the third.

But in the fourth Carbon again found a way to produce runs and they sent home six more and the game was called for the mercy rule.

Cave fanned seven in the winning effort. She also smashed a double as did Darrian Smith.

The Lady Dinos will take on Emery in a non-region match up on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. on the Dino softball field.

The Dino baseball games over at Wasatch were rescheduled due to weather.
