JV: Nevada Union 10,

Del Oro 5

The Miners used their home field advantage to beat the Golden Eagles of Del Oro, 10-5, Tuesday earning their first Sierra Foothill League victory.

The Miners, playing in only their third home game of the year, used the third inning to their advantage. After the Bruins scored in their half of the third, the Miners erupted for five runs of their own.

Kross Corbett started the inning with a double. Cody Voss tried to sacrifice Corbett to third base, but ended up legging out an infield single. James Schnitzius then bunted for a single. Cain Lackey then followed with a grounder that gave the Del Oro shortstop trouble. The error allowed Corbett and Voss to score.

Brad Hedger reached on another Del Oro error. He moved to second on a passed ball. Hedger then scored on Andrew Schnitizius’ sharp single to right.

In the fourth inning the Miners scored again. Jared Stephensen singled and scored on yet another error by Del Oro.

While the offense was getting it done the Miners starter, Austin Butler, held Del Oro’s bats in check. Butler scattered six hits and received defensive help from Lackey and shortstop Weston Gaddis.

In the fifth inning the Miners scored four more runs to put the game away.

Butler ran into some trouble in the sixth inning and was relieved by Lackey who gave up a hit that scored two runs. After those runs Lackey settled down and finished the game off.
