El Dorado boys edge Diamondbacks 3-2

From page A8 | March 27, 2013 |

Chris Swineford drove in two runs including the game-winner as host El Dorado edged Union Mine 3-2 on a great day for baseball Saturday.

Swineford’s two-out single in the fifth that scored Matt Smith allowed Tim Hinrichs to pick up the win. Hinrichs pitched all seven innings, scattered seven hits, struck out three and allowed just one earned run.

Union Mine tightened the score with a run in the top of the seventh on Mike Davis’ second RBI but Hinrichs got out of it to secure the victory.

“A very cleanly played game, fast-paced and well-played high school baseball game,” El Dorado coach Rusty McDonald said.

Union Mine scored first with a run in its first at bat before Swineford’s leadoff home run to right-center in the fourth tied the game. In the Cougar fifth, Zack Culp singled with one out, stole second and scored on Smith’s two-out single.

Swineford and Hinrichs each had two hits for El Dorado. For the D’backs, Davis doubled and had two RBIs; R.J. Blake was 2-for-3 with a double; J.P. Pedretti went 2-for-3 and Carlos Romero doubled.

Davis pitched five and a third innings and Blake two-thirds.

“Both teams played well defensively. El Dorado was more fortunate with timely hits with runners in scoring position. A well-played game between rival programs,” Union Mine coach Brett Robinson said.

The two play again on April 22 and 24.
