D’backs have enough against River City

EL DORADO — Behind some early offensive firepower and solid pitching, the Union Mine Diamondback softball team held off a rally from River City Thursday to win 5-3.

The Diamondbacks got out to a 5-0 lead off of River City starter Karina Callazo.

“We had a plan coming into it. We had a pretty good idea what (Callazo) was going to do. So we were able to get a couple of runs on the board and (Laura Dager) and (Sarah Phillis) did a great job on the mound,” Coach Rob Diggle said.

Calista Almer doubled to lead off the home half of the first inning before Shyanne Winje connected to deep center field for a home run and a 2-0 lead. Jessica Dager then went yard to extend Union Mine’s advantage.

The D’backs added in the second when Madelynn Heape doubled in Miah Linson. After turning a double play in the third, Union Mine scored again as Phillis ripped a double, swiped third base and scored when a Carley Stevens grounder was mishandled.

The Warriors cut the deficit to 5-2 on Jordin Sanchez’ towering home run and Alexis Bennie drove in Callazo in the fifth to make it 5-3.

In the seventh, Winje doubled up a runner at first to end the game.

The win improves Union Mine to 7-4 on the year with a 2-0 Sierra Valley Conference record.

The D’backs have six freshman on its squad this year, including Laura Dager, Winje, Linson, and Almer. Union Mine also sports three sophomores, one junior, and three seniors.

“They’re adjusting to the speed of the game. They go from playing on travel teams with 14 year olds to playing against 17 and 18 year olds, so they’re still catching up to that, and they’re doing really well. And the seniors are really helping as mentors of the younger girls,” Diggle said.
