FARMINGTON — The Farmington High and Piedra Vista baseball teams each picked up victories on Friday.
The Scorpions earned a critical win against Albuquerque Academy 5-2, and then the Panthers knocked off Sandia Prep 13-1 in six innings at Ricketts Park.
FHS (10-8) used a four-run fifth inning to pull away from the Chargers.
The Scorps strung together four straight two-out singles in the inning and were aided by a couple of passed balls by the Academy catcher.
"That was great. We haven't had too many innings like that this year," FHS head coach Sean Trotter said.
Easton Haskill pitched a complete game for FHS, allowing just two runs in seven innings.
"He did a great job," Trotter said. "He filled up the strike zone. He made a couple of bad pitches with two strikes, but, other than that, he did a great job."
FHS opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning with an RBI single by Beamer Wick to score Rylan Deyapp.
Academy (8-7) answered with runs in the second and fifth innings to take a 2-1 lead before FHS scored four in the bottom of the fifth.
The Panthers (13-8) had an easy time with Sandia Prep, scoring three runs in the first inning and two in the second to get an early lead.
"We took a different approach in practice this week," PV head coach Mike McGaha said.
Kody Russell, Matt Martin and Zach Ahlgrim got the PV offense going with three straight singles to lead off the first inning.
Martin and Ahlgrim added RBIs in the second inning to score Tanner Goodwin and Philip Archuleta, pushing PV's lead to 5-0.
PV added seven runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to seal the victory.
Gunner Archuleta got the win on the mound for PV, throwing six innings and allowing just one run on four hits.
"Usually we don't get too many runs, and it puts the pressure on me, but today I knew I could miss every now and then," Gunner Archuleta said.
The two teams will switch opponents today, with FHS playing Sandia Prep (12-4) and PV facing Academy at Ricketts.
