THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Coleman Splits With Mavericks
The Coleman summer baseball team used a 9 run first inning to earn a split with Mid-County, winning 13-4 before losing 3-0.
In the opener, Coleman sent 11 men to the plate and scored nine runs on only three hits, four walks and three errors. Nick Sailer and Derick Teteak had RBI singles and Trevor Seewald drove in two with a double.
Quintin Lukasik came on and pitched seven solid innings in relief, allowing four runs on five hits while also striking out five. The Mavs did all their scoring in the third as Jesus Becerra, Ricky Chaney, and Lukasik all drove in runs. Hunter Stodola pitched two scoreless innings to close out the Coleman win.
Game two saw Mavs starter Eddy Becerra pitch five scoreless innings, allowing one hit, one walk, and striking out eight. Alex Stodola took the loss, despite allowing only three runs on three hits over five innings.
The Mavs scored two in the first on back to back doubles by Gabriel and starter Becerra to start the game. Becerra advanced to third on a passed ball and scored on a wild pitch. In the second, Andrew Dahlberg drew a one-out walk, advanced to third on Nate Rasner's opposite field double, and then scored on a wild pitch. Those runs were more than enough for Becerra, who faced the minimum through four. Catcher Matt Hanson gunned down the only Coleman base runner trying to take second on a wild pitch.
Coleman mounted a threat in the fifth inning with runners on second and third and no outs but Becerra sandwiched two strikeouts around a come backer to the mound to escape trouble.
