GJ Rockies roll in home finale

Club can finish with best record in Pioneer League

Grand Junction manager Anthony Sanders got everything he hoped in his club’s final home game Tuesday night.
James Lomangino pitched six shutout innings with four strikeouts, and the Rockies committed no errors in a crisp 5-1 victory over Orem in Pioneer League baseball at Suplizio Field.
“You couldn’t ask for a better final home game,” Sanders said. “With Lomangino going out that way with a quality start, and (Marc) Magliaro and (Hunter) Brothers — two guys who have been struggling this year — to put the game they did together is fantastic.”
Lomangino spread four hits across his start, and he pitched well for his second straight appearance. Five days after giving up three hits and one run in 6 1/3 innings against Ogden, he had his first scoreless outing in an appearance that lasted three or more innings.
His earned-run average has dipped to 2.08, and the sturdy right-hander has 30 strikeouts compared to eight walks.
