FARMINGTON — The Farmington High baseball team had mixed results in its second day at the Coach Bob National Invitational.
The Scorpions defeated Green Mountain High School from Lakewood, Colo., 19-13 and then lost to Highlands Ranch, Colo., 7-4 on Thursday in Phoenix.
FHS (8-5) fell behind Green Mountain 10-0 in the fourth inning after committing six errors before the hitting came around.
FHS scored three runs in the fourth inning and then added seven more in the fifth inning to get back into the game.
The Scorps pulled away in the sixth and seventh innings, scoring a total of nine runs.
Lance Lee and Beamer Wick led the way with three hits each in the victory. Lee finished with a double and five RBIs, while Wick added a triple and four RBIs.
Dominic Martinez got the win on the mound for the Scorps after throwing three innings in relief of starter Easton Haskill.
FHS then dropped a close game to Highlands Ranch.
The Scorps opened up a 4-3 lead in the third inning behind starting pitcher Shayne Sandoval, but they were unable to hang on.
"They made pitches when they needed to," FHS head coach Sean Trotter said. "Overall, it wasn't a bad day though."
Piedra Vista struggled in a 10-0 loss to Moorpark, Calif.
The Panthers (9-5) allowed three runs in the first inning and gave up a three-run home run in the second inning to fall behind early in the game.
"We knew coming in that we were going to be overmatched," PV head coach Mike McGaha said.
Tanner Goodwin came on in relief of starter Isaiah Valdez and threw three and one-third innings to keep the Panthers in the game, but the PV hitters had trouble generating any offense.
"That's the best arm we've seen all year," McGaha said. "He was throwing between 84 and 87 and backing it up with a good slider and change up."
McGaha said the game helped answer questions for his team, and now PV is closer to finding out who the top three in the pitching rotation will be.
"We're always trying to find the answer," he said. "It's never fun to lose, but today was about data collection."
PV will play Boulder Creek High School from Anthem, Ariz., today, while FHS continues with Silver Creek High School in Longmont, Colo.
