Pack tees off on Mines
CSU-Pueblo 15, Colorado Mines 1
PUEBLO, Colo. - Buoyed by a stable of hot bats and second consecutive dominant start by ace Dillon Meaney (Sr., Westminster, Colo.), CSU-Pueblo mounted a 15-1 win over Colorado Mines Friday.
The win boosts the Pack record to 10-9 overall and an RMAC Plains Division-best 5-2 so far in 2010.
Meaney hurled seven innings for the Pack, striking out seven and allowing just three hits.
On the offensive side, Mark Sayas (Sr., Las Vegas, Nev.) continued his hot streak at the plate, going 4-for-5 and scoring two runs from the leadoff position. He was joined on the offensive leaderboard by Jerry Salazar (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.), who was 3-for-4 with a home run and a double, netting four RBIs.
Amazingly, it was CSU-Pueblo that started off slow, falling to a 1-0 lead Meaney allowed two hits in the opening frame. Meaney then retired 18 of the next 21 batters while CSU-Pueblo had scored in each inning from the second through the fifth.
The ThunderWolves will look to build upon Friday's win when it concludes its series with Mines Saturday with a doubleheader starting at noon.
