Another great escape for Dinos baseball

Colin Moynier is greeted as he crosses home plate by Gage Bigelow after he smashed a home run over the fence to give Carbon an early lead. It was a nail biter until the bottom of the seventh when Bigelow drove in the winning run to extend Carbon's winning streak to 12 games.

With Wasatch fields still too muddy to play, Carbon switched their away game for a home game and kept their winning streak alive for another day.

It now sits at 12 after they escaped with a victory over the Wasatch Wasps in a 3-2 seven inning win.

Gage Bigelow took the mound for the Dinos and struggled through the first inning.

Wasatch had bases loaded with no outs, but Bigelow and the team pulled together and only allowed one run to score.

It was the third inning before Carbon was able to push anything across.

They put up a pair including a right field shot over the fence by Colin Moynier.

The Wasps tied the game in the fifth.

Bigelow came out in the sixth with it tied and Jaren McCourt took over the pitching duties.

Bigelow did not get the win, but made sure the Dinos won by blasting the go ahead shot that scored the final run.

McCourt was credited with the win. Seth Tryon smashed a double and Julian Tamllos added a triple as the Dinos remain undefeated in region action.

"Well we pulled it out at the end for the second time in two days," said Coach Troy Monyier.

"This time is was in the seventh and we didn't need extra innings. Gage Bigelow came through with the hit that won it and he pitched a pretty good game too. Now we face everybody again as we start the second half of play and I just hope we can keep winning."

Carbon now enters the second half of the season as they take on Wasatch for their final match-up of the season Tuesday afternoon in Heber.

They will finish up the week with a home double header against Union with games starting at 2:30 p.m.
