San Manuel Miner

The San Manuel baseball team was defeated by Pusch Ridge Christian Academy last Tuesday, 8 – 2. The Miners’ took out the frustration of the loss by crushing Duncan on the following day, 21 – 0.

The Miners have scored at least 20 runs in 3 different games this year. They scored 20 runs against Tohono O’Odham in the season opener and scored 26 versus Imagine Prep Coolidge in their second game of the year.

After games against Ft. Thomas and San Carlos on April 1 and April 3, respectively, the Miners will travel to Ray to battle the Bearcats on April 4.

The game versus Ray will be a matchup of two of the top teams in the state in Division IV. The Bearcats should provide a good measuring stick for the Miners with almost half the season passed.

The game at Ray is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
