Visiting Union Mine erupted for 10 fourth-inning runs Thursday to overwhelm El Dorado 15-0 in five innings of intra-county Sierra Valley Conference play. Laura Dager delivered the big blow, a two-run home run halfway up the spruce that towers over the high left field fence, driving in Jessica Dager. “The pitch was right down the middle and one I was waiting for,” Laura said. The Dagers combined to hit for the cycle. Laura also tripled and was robbed in the first inning by Cougar third baseman Trinity Jackson. Jessica smoked an RBI single to left that got through the outfielder as runners circled the bases and also doubled in two more in her next at bat. “It was good to see our patience (at the plate) and we let the ball get deep,” D’back coach Rob Diggle said. “We moved up in the box — sometimes against off speed pitchers you can spin yourself into the ground.” Union Mine scored two in the first against Cougar starter Kelsey Liddell and another three in the third. Jackson singled in the first but overall El Dorado couldn’t get anything going against D’back pitcher Beth Hammer. “Beth pitched a great game and was very much in control,” Diggle said. Union Mine registered six hits in its big inning. For the game, Madelynn Heap had two hits and four  RBIs;  Miah Linson singled twice; Carley Stevens had two hits and Calista Almer tripled and singled. El Dorado made contact against Hammer but popped up seven times to the infield. Defensively, Hailey Harkley had several nice catches and Kristen VanGilder snarred a line drive. “We knew it’d be a challenge, Union Mine is 3-0 and has some power hitters,” Cougar coach Marci Brown said. “We made contact today which was great to see with only one strikeout so were growing offensively.”
