Snake River dominates Soda Springs on the diamonds
Snake River 20, Soda Springs 1 (5 innings)
SODA SPRINGS — In as lopsided a win as one will find the Snake River Panthers crushed host Soda Springs 20-1 on the baseball diamond Wednesday evening.
"We actually were holding runners," Snake River head coach James Carter said. "We probably could have scored thirty or more runs. We swung the bats pretty good and they struggled defensively."
Zane Stephenson had a triple in the landslide victory while Wyatt Wray, Kade Harrel and Trey Albertson each picked up a pair of hits.
Kade Keller came in to pitch in relief for the Panthers and the sophomore pitched well as he held the Cardinals scoreless over the final two innings of play.
"We were able to get a bunch of our young guys in tonight," Coach Carter said. "The sophomores came in and did a good job for us which will help us with depth down the road."
Snake River improves their record to 5-1 on the season and will host Malad this afternoon for a 4:45 ball game.
Snake River 16, Soda Springs 6 (6 innings)
SODA SPRINGS — The Snake River Lady Panthers hit the road for their first true road test on Wednesday afternoon as they traveled to Soda Springs to tangle with a much improved Lady Cardinal club.
At the end of the day, Snake River proved to once again be the superior team between the lines however as they pounded the Lady Cardinals in a 16-6 game that was called in the sixth inning.
"The girls played well today," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We had good pitching from Raegan and Erica and we had several girls hit the ball really well today. We got a 5-1 lead and then they came back to tie it on us but we were able to pull away from them later in the game."
The pitching duo of Raegan Martin and Erica Ramirez combined to strike out 8 Lady Cardinals while issuing just one free pass.
At the plate Snake River got big days from Katie Ogden who finished 4 for 5 with 4RBI. Macy Martin had a 3 for 3 day with a double and 3RBI. Chelsey Martin was 1 for 1, that hit being a double with 3RBI while Raegan Martin helped her own cause with a 2 for 5 day with 4RBI. Billie Gibson rounded out the big day with a 2 for 4 day as well.
Snake River (6-2) will travel to Sugar-Salem today for a non-conference showdown with the Diggers.
