The San Manuel varsity baseball Miners took the loss against the Pusch Ridge Christian Lions but picked up a big win over the Miami Vandals.

The Miners traveled over to Oro Valley on Apr. 16 for a region game and returned home with a 13 – 3 loss ending the game after six innings of play.

San Manuel scored one run in the fourth inning and two runs in the sixth inning while Pusch Ridge scored two runs in the first inning, two runs in the second inning, one run in the fourth inning, two runs in the fifth inning, and six runs in the sixth inning.

The Miners scored three runs on five hits and the Lions scored 13 runs on nine hits.

On the mound for the Miners was T.J Brown with Christian Dietz catching, coming in for relief was Richard Romo, John Ruiz, and Shane Kelly; the pitching staff allowed nine hits and 13 runs.

Offensively, Anthony Garcia went 2 for 3 with one run scored; Danny Quijada went 1 for 1 with two RBIs; Demetrious Dietz went 1 for 3 with a double and one run scored; and Bryan Valdez went 1 for 3 with a double.

Head Coach Steve Elmore said, “We did not play a good game from start to finish, there were times that we looked good, but errors, walks, and strikeouts ended those good things. We have four games left in the regular season. We need to start playing team baseball if we want to make a run in the tournament.”

The Miners hosted the Vandals on Apr. 19 and sent Miami home early in five innings as San Manuel pushed 19 runs across the plate to take the 19 – 1 victory.

The Miners pounded out 19 runs on 15 hits while the Vandals only managed one run on two hits.

Miami scored their sole run in the third inning with San Manuel scored one run in the first inning, eight runs in the second inning, four runs in the third inning, and six runs in the fourth inning.

On the mound for the Miners was Anthony Garcia with T.J Brown catching, Garcia allowed two hits, one run – one earned, and struck out five batters.

Offensively, Demetrious Dietz went 2 for 4 with a double and three runs scored; John Ruiz went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs scored; Anthony Garcia went 2 for 4 with two runs scored; and Danny Quijada went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs scored.

“We needed a good win like this to rejuvenate the team,” said head coach Steve Elmore. “Hopefully we can carry this momentum into next week against Pusch Ridge and St. Gregory’s.”

“Anthony pitched great today only giving up two hits and striking out five Miami hitters,” he added. “We batted well today also. We put the bat on the ball and made them make the play. Miami did have some errors that helped us score some extra runs, but overall we hit pretty good.”

The Miners hosted Pusch Ridge on Tuesday of this week and will take on St. Gregory today in a make- up double header with the Miners taking the field at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
