Snow Canyon 11, Hurricane 0 4/18/2018

Breck Eichelberger has pitched 38 innings this 2018 season, facing seven different teams along the way. None of them have figured the Snow Canyon senior out.

Eichelberger allowed one hit and one walk, striking out 12 Tigers, en route to yet another shutout. The Snow Canyon ace has yet to allow an earned run this season and has given up just 22 hits and 10 walks. Opponents are hitting a measly .162 off of him, while his strikeout-to-walk ratio is a stellar 5-1.

Meanwhile, the Snow Canyon offense was hitting on most of its cylinders. SC scored three in the first, three in the second, one in the fourth and four in the top of the sixth to finally bring the mercy rule into play.

Seth Smith started the game with a walk and eventually came home on a wild pitch. Later in the first, Stephen Gubler hit a bases loaded two-run single to make it 3-0.

In the top of the second, Smith had an RBI single with one out to score Brock Secrist and make it 4-0. Brooks Sampson scored on an error and then Austin Deming singled home Smith to make it 6-0.

Deming hit the first pitch of the fourth inning over the left field fence to make it a 7-0 game and it stayed that way until the sixth. In that inning, Deming led off with a triple to right field and scored on a Tim Shakespeare RBI that made it 8-0. Jed Jensen’s single made it 9-0 and then Braden Baker hit an RBI double to make it 10-0. The final run came home on an RBI walk by Smith.

Eichelberger gave up just one hit, a double by Kage Akipoleka in the bottom of the fifth. He also allowed a walk in that inning, but got out of the jam with a groundout and a strikeout.

Snow Canyon ended up with 11 hits, including three by Deming and two each by Austin Staheli and Secrist. Deming’s homer was his region-leading sixth of the season. The Warriors also stole five bases in the game.

Snow Canyon is now 19-1 overall and 7-0 in region games. The Warriors have outscored opponents 69-9 in seven region games. Hurricane drops to 7-11 and 0-7.

The two teams meet again Friday at Warrior Field at 7:30 p.m.
