A lost day at Fallon

FALLON — Fallon continued its run trough Northern 1A baseball teams with a doubleheader sweep of Dayton, 9-4 and 11-1

The Dust Devils led twice on the day, both times coming in the first inning of each game, and after that it was all Fallon.

“Fallon is really loaded,” Dayton coach Mike Burrows said. “They have more baseball players than we did football players. We have seven games left, and we’re not going to mail it in. We just have to stay the course and work hard. Hopefully it will translate into some wins down the line.

“In the first game we scored three and they answered back with five. We never got anything going until the fifth when we left the bases loaded. We couldn’t string hits together.”

Trevor Burrows, Davis Winebarger and Mikey Selmi drove in runs with singles in the opener. Selmi drove in Dayton’s lone run in the second game.

Selmi had four hits on the day and Dylan Baker had two, both in the first game.


Dayton swept by Greenwave

FALLON — Fallon took three straight over Dayton this weekend, winning 18-2 on Friday, and 20-0 and 19-0 on Saturday.

Mallory Dickenson tripled in the opener on Friday.

Galena sweeps Senators

RENO — The Grizzlies swept Carson, 7-3 and 12-2 Saturday in a Northern Division I doubleheader.

Errors hurt Carson in the opener, as the Grizzlies scored three unearned runs off starter/loser Lauren Lemburg.

Bailey Allen led Carson with three hits and Nicole Brown tripled.

“We gave them three in the first inning (of the first game),” CHS coach Shane Quilling said. “We hit the ball well. I think we only struck out a couple of times. Lauren pitched well. Galena hit the ball a little better than us.”

In the second game, Galena scored five in the first and seven in the second off Makenzie Tucker, who was the victim of poor defense.

“We dropped three flyballs,” said Quilling in talking about the second-game demise. “Makenzie pitched well and deserved better.”

Carson plays at McQueen Thursday and hosts Spanish Springs on Saturday.


Hopkins sparks Pack to win

RENO – Senior Karley Hopkins went 3-for-4 with a career-high five RBI, and senior Megan Dortch tossed five innings of relief to earn the win as the Nevada softball team topped in-state foe UNLV, 10-5, on Saturday afternoon at Hixon Field.

Junior Amanda Weis drove two runs, senior Ashley Butera hit her fifth home run of the season and freshman Alyssa Mendez and junior Jasmine Jenkins each tallied three hits for the Pack (14-29, 4-10 MW).

The rubber-match of the three-game series is set for noon today at Hixson Park.
