Our Miners kicked off the weekend with a win against the Pioneers with a score of 9-3! We played on the Whitney field, but with the support our Miners received, it felt like we were right at home. The crowd was filled with parents, staff, family members, and peers of the Miners. The rate our champions are on now, suggests huge success for the rest of this season.
Throughout the game, we showed off our raw talent with Adam Munoz hitting a homerun and going 3 for 3 with an incredible double and a quick single. Blake Hernandez hit multiple doubles, Eean Mexicano went 3 for 4, and Austin Ayers hit singles each time he went up to bat. Julian Rubio didn’t fail his team mates when pitching seven out of the nine innings with incredible stamina. With each skilled tactic by the Miners, the Pioneers seemed to stumble in their positions and fail to put up a challenge for this key win.
Although Whitney came out with confidence, they were no match for our Miners who continued to steal bases and rack up runs. This win came with almost too much ease as our Miners dominated both offensively and defensively. The crowd was rowdy and encouraged the boys to dominate the field! El Diamante plays this upcoming Wednesday at home, come watch our talented Miners!
