Steamboat baseball comes up short in Eagle, ends season
May 5, 2010
Steamboat Springs — The Steamboat Springs High School baseball team lost a pair of games Tuesday in Eagle Valley, falling 5-3 and 11-6.
Despite the two losses, which finish Steamboat's season at 4-15 overall and 3-10 in the Western Slope League, Sailors manager Dave Roy said Tuesday's games showed how Steamboat could play.
"They were two very good games," Roy said. "It was the best doubleheader we've played all year. We played good defense and hit the ball well."
In the first game, Steamboat got a pair of home runs from Brandon Clark and Matt Watwood. Justin Ditter went 3 for 3 in the game, and Tyler Brown pitched a complete game.
In Game 2, Steamboat took a 4-2 lead after one inning on a two-run home run by Clark and a two-run single by Carson Becker.
Clark hit his third home run of the day in the third inning. Watwood threw four innings before Becker came in and gave up one run in the final three innings.
Roy said he was happy with the way the season ended, especially being without the team's top two starters, Alan Capistron and Tommy Lyon, because of injury.
