Last night the El Diamante Miners Varsity baseball team took on the Bullard Knights. Senior Mason Garispe LHP was on the mound and threw 5 innings allowing only 3 runs for the Miners.
The Miners scored 3 runs in the first inning to take the lead over the Knights.
Second inning, senior Zane Thompson, with bases loaded, takes one over for a grand slam. The Miners now had insurance runs to relieve stress from Mason Garispe.
Later throughout the game both teams were running out of daylight to play. Due to Bullard not having lights and the sun going down too fast, Bullard scored most of their runs by hitting ground balls in the outfield. They were catching up until they had to stop the game because it was too dark and the final score was 9-6, Miners on top.
