Manogue sweeps Carson

RENO – Ryan Charles blanked Carson on three hits, and Josh Rolling hit a two-run double in the third to lead Manogue to a 4-0 win in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader.

Charles threw just 86 pitches, as Carson extended its scoreless inning streak to 15 straight innings dating back to the seventh inning of the first game against Galena on Tuesday.

Teigen Key went 2-for-2 and Abel Carter 1-for-3 for the Senators, who never got a runner to third the entire game.

In the second game, Carson lost 3-2 despite a nice pitching performance by Avery Powell, who allowed just six hits. Rolling picked up the win for the Miners.

Carson took a 1-0 lead in the second when Key reached on catcher’s interference, and Carter drove in the run with a sacrifice fly.

Bishop Manogue took a 3-1 lead with two in the third and one in the fourth.

Carson cut the lead to 3-2 in the seventh when Carter doubled and eventually scored on an infield out by Landon Truesdale.

Carter went 2-for-3, while Kobe Morgan, Colby Zemp and Kahle Good had one hit apiece.

Damonte Ranch takes 2 from Douglas

Zack Jensen tripled to lead off an eighth inning rally that lifted Damonte Ranch to a 5-2 victory and sweep of its Northern 4A doubleheader over Douglas Saturday in Minden.

Coupled with its 14-1 win in game one, Damonte Ranch (12-4 conference, 18-8) remained in a three-way tie for second-place.

Douglas (5-11, 7-14) bounced back after being held to one hit in the opener. The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Blake Murray drew a leadoff walk and came home on Elijah Hinojosa’s single to right field.

Damonte Ranch scored twice in the sixth inning to take a 2-1 lead. The Tigers answered in the bottom half of the inning when Jayden Foster hit a two-out double and scored on Ayden Murphy’s line drive single to center field.

Foster pitched five-hit ball over seven innings for Douglas, however, the Mustangs got untracked with five hits in the eighth. Jensen lined his triple to center and scored the go-ahead run on Jerry Thomas’ infield groundout. Esteban Lopez followed with a single, Mike Nicholas doubled to left, Jacob Bercovich hit an RBI single up the middle and Hunter Dunithan added a sacrifice fly to extend the lead to 5-2.

Tyler Hopper pitched four-hit ball over seven innings to secure the win and Everett Williams came on to retire the side in order in the eighth to earn credit for a save.

Douglas faces Wooster on Wednesday in a 4 p.m. game at Greater Nevada Field in Reno.

Damonte rallies against Douglas
