Rabbits run out of their second place lair at home

Sun Advocate sports reporter

Adam Martinez throws the ball with it just barely slipping off his fingers during the game with Granite at home last week. Again this week he helped to defeat another Region 8 team by pitching against Delta.

It may be that the Delta baseball team was feeling pretty good about meeting Carbon on their home field on Tuesday afternoon.

They had a better record, something they haven't held over Carbon in many years, and they had the home field advantage.

But they forgot about Adam Martinez. His strong arm threw Carbon to another victory as the Dinos soundly defeated Delta with a 7-4 win.

With Emery breathing down their backs Carbon sits in second place in Region 8 play. Emery will be looking for revenge of their earlier loss on Friday when they travel up to Carbon to go head to head. The Dinos are 5-2 in region play, while Emery is 4-2.

The team the Carbon is chasing for the region title is last year's 2A champion, Juan Diego. The Dinos will get a chance at their own revenge when they meet up with Juan Diego at home on May 4.
