Dayton continues winning ways
RENO — Dayton scored six runs in the first three innings, and then held off a late surge by South Tahoe to grab a 9-5 Northern 3A win Tuesday night at Greater Nevada Field.
Dayton outhit South Tahoe 15-5, which was impressive considering the Dust Devils were off last weekend.
“I was concerned with the week off we might come out flat not having seen live pitching,” coach Mike Burrows said. “The middle part of our order really came through when we needed it. It was nice to see Zach (Woitas) get some balls to drop. He has been hitting the ball hard, but right at people lately. Nick (Hein) and Jake (Madson) also had good days at the plate.”
Woitas went 3-for-4 with four RBI, while Madson went 3-for-3. Trevor Burrows, Jessie Schmidt and Justin Schmidt had two hits apiece.
Burrows threw 6.1 innings, allowing two earned runs and striking out 10.
