Carson High School baseball showed some positive signs Thursday in a 9-1 loss to Galena.

Tanner Bohemier struck out five over 3.1 innings of work, mixing and matching his off-speed pitches with his fastball.

Bohemier’s slider and circle change were responsible for several of the senior’s strikeouts.

“I thought Tanner threw very, very well today. We needed to be a little more aggressive on some fly balls to help him out,” said Carson head coach Bryan Manoukian.

The Senators had the bases loaded in both the third and fourth inning, but were only able to plate a single run.

“We just have to score runners in scoring position. That’s what we’re not the best at right now. Other than that, we feel pretty good,” said Bohemier.

The Senators are still feeling good after winning five games in a row over spring break.

In Saturday’s 13-2 loss to Bishop Manogue, the Senators had six hits from six different hitters.

Jeremy Hernandez and Tyler LaFollette were both credited with an RBI.

Jordan Sieben and Bohemier both doubled in the loss.

“Over spring we played really well. We need that to transfer over to league. We pitched extremely well and we played really good defense. We need to carry over the defense is the biggest thing,” said Manoukian.

UP NEXT: Carson (7-14, 0-8 in Class 5A North league play) will welcome its rival to town Tuesday at the Douglas Tigers (13-5, 4-4) will be in Carson for a league tilt. Thursday, Carson will host McQueen (10-10, 4-5).
