San Manuel Miner

The San Manuel baseball team defeated the Hayden Lobos last Tuesday, 13 – 3. It was the Miners second consecutive win.

The Miners have now won two consecutive games for the second time this season. They previously did it in their first two games to open the season.

Both times they have won consecutive games, the Miners have held their opponents to 2 runs or less. In the first two games of the season they held both of their opponents scoreless. In the most recent back-to-back wins against Apache Junction and Hayden they allowed a combined 4 runs between both games.

On the season, the Miners are now 4 – 2 and in their four victories they’ve allowed a total of 4 runs. It appears good pitching and sound defense is the secret to the Miners’ success.

After games versus Tombstone and Hayden this week, the Miners will return to action on March 25 at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy. On March 26 they will travel to Duncan. Both games begin at 4 p.m.
