• Warriors, Tigers use bats to get victories
Scott Clow did a little bit of everything Friday for the Central Warriors.
The starting junior pitcher struck out five batters and also hit a two-run home run in the Warriors’ 16-4 win over Pueblo West.
“Clow is really seeing the ball well right now,” Central (4-1) coach Chuck Yost said. “And he is doing a great job on the mound.”
Clow pitched all five innings for the Warriors, who defeated a team in five innings by scoring in the double digits for the second straight day.
Friday, Central scored nine runs in the first inning and added six in the second.
“We came out and had some aggressive quality at-bats,” Yost said. “We set the tone early with our bats and didn’t let up.”
Spencer Hicks and Alex Rupe added doubles for the Warriors.
• Grand Junction 10, Rangeview 3
Andy Willett kept his bat hot as the sophomore followed up a 3-for-3 day against Pueblo West with a double and a two-run home run during the Tigers’ win over the Raiders.
Willett’s twin brother, Charlie, added a double for Grand Junction (5-0) and Tyler Nielsen, Jayke Brock and Zeph Quigley all had extra-base hits.
Grand Junction pitchers Charlie Reicks and Tyler Lindenbaum combined to allow three runs.
• At the first day of the Air Academy Tournament, Fruita Monument lost to Chaparral 1-0 in double overtime.
The Wildcats managed four shots on goal and Fruita goalie Megan Golike stopped 20 Wolverines shots.
“It was a big improvement from last week,” Fruita Monument coach Tracey Burke said. “We held them off as long as we could.”
