The Delta Panthers picked up two important wins in Western Slope League competition when they dominated in a doubleheader Saturday, April 14, against Moffat County.
"We played two all around good games," said coach Marty Rover. "We threw strikes on the mound, played good defense and broke out offensively."
The Panther bats were certainly busy Saturday. They pounded out 20 runs in the first game, while giving up only one run. The second game was a 13-6 win.
Senior Chris Lopez homered twice — once in each game. He also hit a single and double in each game.
Sophomore Isaiah Kathrein had an incredible day agianst the Moffat County pitchers. A quick bat and sharp eye resulted in Kathrein being on base eight out of 10 plate appearances. Along with three singles, he drew five walks and was hit by a pitch.
Rover praised the pitching efforts of senior Jordan Sandoval and sophomore Tyler Sandoval. In the first game, Jordan three shutout innings. Tyler threw four innings of two-hit, one-run baseball.
"We seemed to play relaxed and focus, and took care of business," Rover noted.
The wins pushed the Panthers to a 7-5 record for the season, and challenging in the conference with four league wins.
The Panthers will host Montrose on Tuesday, April 24, at 4 p.m. at the Delta Middle School field.blog comments powered by Disqus
