Prep Roundup: Carson High baseball beats Hug
Carson High baseball coach Bryan Manoukian gave most of his reserves a chance to play significant innings Thursday night against Hug.
The only starters who were in the lineup at first pitch were Delsin Roberts, Kobe Morgan and Joe Tonino.
It didn’t matter. CHS still manhandled Hug, 13-3, in 4-plus innings at Ron McNutt Field to even its Northern 4A record at 4-4.
The win gave Carson a season sweep of the Hawks. On Tuesday, Carson pounded Hug, 19-1, in three innings.
“We put the bat on the ball and scored enough runs to win,” said Manoukian, whose team is scheduled to host North Valleys on Saturday at 10 a.m. “We’re 7-3 in our last 10 games, and now we get a day off. We still need to play better defense.”
Hug threatened in the first, loading the bases with one out, but Zach Glanzmann induced Fernando Martinez to hit into an inning-ending double play.
Carson took a 3-0 lead in the first on singles by Josh Buchan, Tonino and Vernon Painter plus two walks and an error.
The Senators extended their lead to 7-0 with four in the second.
Buchan and Tonino singled to open the inning. After Roberts singled to load the bases, Painter hit a two-run single to make it 5-0. Roberts stopped at third and Painter went to second on an error in right field. Pitcher Ben Nelson, serving as the designated hitter, hammered a ball to deep left, scoring Roberts and Painter to make it 7-0. Nelson reached third, but was called out for missing first base.
Hug scored on a double steal in the third to make it 7-1, but Carson countered with two more runs in the third to make it 9-1. After Hug trimmed the lead to 9-3 in the top of the fifth, Carson scored four in the bottom of the inning to end the game on the 10-run rule. Josh Ingram had the walk-off hit.
Tonino went 3-for-3 and scored three runs. Buchan, Painter and Nelson all had two hits. Seven of the nine Carson hitters had at least one hit.
CHS girls blank North Valleys
RENO — The Senators scored eight runs in the first four innings en route to a 10-0 win over North Valleys in a Northern 4A game Thursday afternoon.
Jailene Salciedo threw two shutout innings to start the game, and Taylor Murphy threw the final four innings. The duo combined to limit the Panthers to six hits, one off Salciedo and five off Murphy.
Kedre Luschar walked in the first, moved to third on an error and scored when Cam Quilling was thrown out on a dropped third strike.
Carson scored four in the second to extend its lead to 5-0.
Amaya Mendeguia and Kassidy Cooley singled to start the inning. After a strikeout, Nicole Brown singled to load the bases. Kailee Luschar singled home Mendeguia, and Cooley and Brown also scored on an error. Luschar scored on a single by Salciedo.
That was more than enough, but the Senators went on to score two in the third, one in the fourth and two in the sixth before the game was stopped because of the 10-run rule.
Brown, Cooley and Salciedo each finished with two hits.
