FARMINGTON — The Piedra Vista and Bloomfield baseball teams squeezed in a non-district matchup in the middle of the district season.
The Panthers knocked off the Bobcats 10-0 in five innings on Friday in Bloomfield.
"We're getting better every day," PV head coach Mike McGaha said.
The Panthers (14-9) scored three runs in both the second and third innings to open up a lead and then added a pair of runs in both the fourth and fifth innings.
McGaha said he was pleased with the balance throughout his lineup.
"We executed and did a good job hitting guys in with less than two outs," he said.
Matt Martin and Zach Ahlgrim each had a pair of hits in the victory, and Logan Klunder added a two-run triple in the third inning.
Wyatt Weaver threw four innings for PV to earn the victory.
"Bloomfield put the ball in play more than other team has against him, but he didn't allow them to get in a groove," McGaha said.
Bloomfield head coach Frank DeHoyos was unhappy with some sloppy play by the Bobcats (12-9) and hopes things turn around quickly for his team.
"We've got a lot of things to fix," DeHoyos said. "We're not playing the right way."
The Panthers will get back to district play today against Aztec.
Bloomfield will face Farmington on Monday and then play a doubleheader against Shiprock for the District 1-3A title on Thursday.
