Carbon gave up two big innings to Spanish Fork on Tuesday, spoiling its Region 12 opener, 12-7.
The Dinos jumped out to an early 5-0 lead after the first inning, aided by three walks and two key hits from Kaden Fiechko and Derek Young. Spanish Fork countered with seven runs in the second and pushed across four more in the sixth. Starting pitcher Dakota Cisneros lasted until the third and was credited with the loss. The Dinos added two more runs in the top of the seventh to round out the scoring.
The Dinos (5-3, 0-1 Region 12) and Dons (6-2, 1-0 Region 12) will face each other again Friday, this time in Price.
