Helper Bats Explode for 30 Hits, Sweeps Doubleheader from Corner Canyon at Home


Cole Fossat had six hits and picked up the win in game one of a doubleheader Monday night against Corner Canyon. Helper’s offense was on point in both games, outscoring Corner Canyon 24-3 and out-hitting them 30-6.

Fossat pitched a complete game in game one, allowing just one run, which was unearned, while giving up just two hits. Fossat also had three doubles in the game at the plate. Colton Greener and Bryce Blackburn each had three singles. Mark DeBry had two singles and Dillon Wilstead and Rylee Molinar each had doubles. Helper scored nine runs in the fifth inning to end the game via the mercy rule.

A Corner Canyon lefty slowed Helper’s bats down a bit in game two, but four different Helper players recorded at least two hits. Fossat and Wilstead each had three singles, Marco Mota and Jordan Baletka had two each and Bryce Blackburn and Dominic Rondinelli nailed a triple and double, respectively. Kyler Nelson pitched 6 1/3 innings for the win. Mitch Olson retired the final two batters of the seventh to secure the win.

“We had a lot of opportunities to score more runs,” said manager Jeff Cisneros. “But it seemed all of our hits came with no runners in scoring position. After a week-long layoff, it was nice to see the guys hit the ball.”

Helper’s record now sits at 9-3 in league play with two regular season games remaining, Wednesday at Highland and Friday at Judge.

Four Helper players will participate in the Salt Lake Valley Legue all-star game on Saturday in Magna. Colton Greener, Blake Bean, Domonic Rondinelli and Marco Mota will take part in the nine-inning game. The West Team, comprised of Cyprus, Helper, Price and Judge, will take on the East Team of Herriman, Murray, Corner Canyon and Highland.
