San Manuel Miner

The 2013 State Champion Miners’ softball team extended its winning streak to 14 games last week with wins over Tombstone and Pima. They are undefeated in their section and playing like a team on a mission to repeat as champs.

The 2nd-ranked Miners have dominated in all phases of the game over the past month. During the 14-game winning streak they have scored 11 runs or more 11 times, 15 runs or more six times, and 20 runs or more two times. They have limited every opponent during the winning streak to three runs or less, including seven shutouts. And, finally, only twice did they win by a margin of less than five runs.

The schedule gets tough down the stretch for the Miners as four of their remaining six games are against teams ranked in the top seven by the AIA. The Miners have a chance to regain the top ranking in Division IV this week with back-to-back games versus a Superior team currently atop the division rankings.

Upcoming schedule: Apr. 16 @ Superior, Apr. 18 vs. Superior, Apr. 22 @ Globe, and Apr. 23 vs. Miami. All games begin at 4:00 p.m.
