Miners notch 3rd straight

The Union Staff

The Grass Valley Miners, an American Legion baseball team, continued their strong start Tuesday, improving to 3-0 this season after topping Del Oro, 9-6.

Left-handed hurler Garrett O’Callaghan got the win, going 4 1/3 innings on the mound, striking out five and allowing just two earned runs.

Chris Sarto relieved O’Callaghan, going the final 2 2/3 innings with four strikeouts and no earned runs allowed.

From the plate, the Miners got a big game from Joey Souza with a pair of doubles. O’Callaghan helped himself out with a 2-for-2 day and Dalton Maxwell along with Brock Grininger added key base knocks in the win.

The Miners are back at it again at 5:30 p.m. Thursday when they host Chico.
