BUHS Baseball falls 2-1 in 8 inning dual
Junior pitcher Aaron Chinzi was great Tuesday, however Rosamond was just a bit better. Chinzi threw a gem on a windy, cold day at Rosamond High School but took the loss 2-1. Rosamond’s Leonard Grimes opened the 8th inning with a double and scored on the game winning single delivered by Tyler Herrick. Prior to the back to back hits in the 8th, Chinzi had allowed just 4 Roadrunner hits, all singles. Chinzi struck out 7 and walked just two batters.
Rosamond Senior Matt Lecomte matched Chinzi pitch for pitch. Lecomte allowed just 4 hits, a double and triple to Colton Riesen and singles to Clyde McCoy and Jake Traynor. Traynor walked twice scoring Bishop’s run in the top of the first on a Riesen RBI ground out. Lecomte stuck out 13 Broncos.
