Wednesday, April 18, 2012 • Posted April 18, 2012

The Punchers pounded Eldorado on Tuesday 16-3 at Mason in six innings.

Mason scored five runs in the fourth on an RBI double by Chance Stockbridge, a two-run single by Miguel Castillo, an RBI triple by Austin Trip, and an RBI single by Kolby Yonker.

The teams traded runs for most of the contest, leading to four lead changes in the game. The Punchers finally managed to grab the lead after a strong third inning. Mason scored on an RBI double by Winston Trip off N Jimenez, scoring Castillo. Trip racked up five RBIs on two hits for Varsity 2012. Hunter Kunc recorded the win for Varsity 2012. He allowed three runs over six innings. Hunter Kunc struck out eight, walked one and surrendered seven hits.

The Mason Punchers hammered Eldorado pitching as seven hitters had a field day, combining for 12 hits, 14 RBIs and 14 runs scored.

The Punchers pushed across two runs in both the second inning and the fifth. In the second, they scored on a two-run double by Andy Duarte, plating Trip and Bodie Adams.

After pushing across one run in the top of the fourth, Eldorado faced just a 5-3 deficit. An error triggered Eldorado’s comeback. Kunc ended the inning by getting W Barker to ground out.

In the bottom of the sixth E. Bibb reached on an error committed by the short stop. He then stole second. Kunce reached by an error as well. Castillo got plunked by the pitch. Then the unthinkable happened. It was like when the universe is aligned perfectly something supernatural happens. Winston Trip, had so much backside drive and hand torque that he sent a ball sailing well over the fence for a walk off grand salami. That’s good bull right there.
