Farmington wins first game, but bats fall silent later
BRIGHTON, Colo. — After dropping their first two games of the tournament, the Farmington Frackers wrapped up Stan Musial World Series pool play on a brighter note today, splitting their two games at Brighton High School.
Pitcher Sergio Lucero threw a complete game in Farmington’s 5-1 win over the Northern Colorado Roughnecks’ high school graduate team in the opener.
However, the Frackers' bats couldn’t prolong momentum from that first game, as Farmington later lost 8-1 against the Roughnecks’ collegiate team.
The Frackers had 10 hits in Game 1, sending nice shots into the gaps. Justin Watari and Parker DePasquale led the way with three hits each.
Lucero surrendered just one run on two hits and struck out four batters in Game 1.
In Game 2, Farmington’s bats couldn’t do significant damage.
The Frackers had seven fly-outs and struck out five times, all while mustering just five hits.
Dylan Zavala drove in Marquise Glenn for the only Farmington run.
The Frackers will start championship bracket play at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Brighton High.
