Carbon busted Rabbits power

Playing in the cold rain for the second straight game, Carbon saw a much different outcome than they did when they thrashed Granite 14-0.
The Delta Rabbits came to town and ran over the top of the Dinos in a 20-5 rout.
Half of the damage in the loss came in the top of the first.
With Adam Martinez on the mound and two outs, it looked like Carbon was going to get out of the inning with only one run scored against them. Then a series of errors and good hitting allowed Delta to send eight more players across home plate.
During the series, Martinez took a line drive off his pitching hand and thought he could shake it off. But one batter later he was pulled by Coach Lane Herrick and Aaron Sandoval took over the hurling duties.
The team tried to climb back in it, but the Rabbits overpowered the Dinos with their offense. They left the Carbon team looking to put this one behind them and move on. Carbon is now just under the .500 mark with an overall record of 4-5 overall. They are 1-1 in Region 8 play.
The squad will travel south to Emery for a game on April 4 and then they will be back at home on April 7 to take on North Sanpete.
