DAYTON — Spring Creek snapped a 1-all tie with two in the third and three in the fourth en route to a 15-2 win over Dayton in a Northern 3A baseball game Friday.
The teams play an 11 a.m. doubleheader today, weather permitting.
“The final score was not indicative of the game,” Dayton coach Mike Burrows said. “Dylan (Baker) pitched well in windy conditions against one of the best offenses in the league. Our bullpen woes continued and they broke it up in the seventh (eight runs).”
Baker left trailing, 7-2, yielding three homers. Avery Nelson gave up five runs and five hits without retiring a batter, and Cole Purdy gave up three runs and three hits in one inning.
Dayton tied the game at 1 when Nick Hein walked and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. Spring Creek led off the third with back-to-back homers by Jon Jund and Sheldon Wilkinson. Dayton made it 3-2 when Trevor Burrows scored on a passed ball in the bottom of the third.
Jund made it 6-2 in the fourth when he crushed a three-run homer to left. Dayton threatened in the fifth, loading the bases with no outs. Hein lined into a double play, and Dayton failed to cut into the lead.
Jund doubled home a run in the sixth to make it 7-2, and the Spartans scored eight times in the seventh.
Trevor Burrows had two hits for Dayton while Jesse Schmidt, Zach Woitas and Justin Schmidt added one each.
