The ever-anticipated matchups between Carbon and Delta are underway. On Tuesday, the Dinos were on the road and despite grabbing an early run, fell to the Wasps 4-2.
Carbon gave up all four runs in the third inning after a couple of walks and an error put them in a jam. After a hit batter and a bases-clearing single, Carbon was in a 4-1 deficit it would not overcome.
Senior Ty Anderson was a home run away from the cycle. He was a bright spot for the Dinos offensively, scoring both runs and tallying three of the Dinos’ six hits in the contest. Braxton Bennett surrendered the four runs but all were unearned. He struck out three over 2 2/3 innings. Keaton Rich came in for relief and only allowed one hit through 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three Wasps.
The rematch between the two teams is slated for Friday afternoon in Helper at 3:30 p.m.. The game will be broadcast live online and on ETV Channel 10.
