Rocky Mountain 7, Alliance SRs 6
Rocky jumped out to a 6-0 lead after two innings Monday but the Spartans rallied back and made it a close contest. Five consecutive singles and a sac-bunt RBI in the fourth got Alliance within 6-4, and Joel Baker's RBI ground out in the sixth made it a one-run deficit at 7-6. The Spartans left the tying run on base in the final inning.
Chance Crowe started on the hill and threw two innings, giving up six earned runs and five hits. Kirk Sanders came on in relief and calmed the Rocky Mountain bats, giving up just four hits in five frames and striking out four while walking four.
After giving up seven hits into the fourth inning, Rocky turned to its bullpen and limited the Spartans to just three hits in the final 3 2/3 to squelch the comeback.
Alliance SRs 4, Rocky Mountain 3
Vic Hinojosa's two-run homer pushed Alliance past Rocky Mountain Monday, 4-3. Rocky had taken a 3-2 lead the inning prior and Hinojosa's homer was the last of the scoring for the day and the Alliance bullpen of Chase King and Trevor DuBray did a great job of working out of fifth and sixth inning jams to maintain the margin, leaving two Rocky runners on base each frame.
