Chiefs have no trouble with WNHS

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

It's still a perfect baseball season for the Santa Fe Chiefs.

The latest victim of the Santa Fe machine was Well-ington by a 10-1 count last week Monday at Wellington.

There was some trepidation on the part of Santa Fe skipper Josh Fisher before the matchup. But the Chiefs gave him no reason to panic once the game started, scoring five first-inning runs and adding five more in the second frame.

The only blemish that kept the game from being a shutout victory was a lone Tiger tally in the fourth inning.

With one out in the first, the Chiefs had three straight singles by Hunter Rolf, Matt Lovercamp and Andrew Curry. After the second out, Nathan Wesley smacked a two-run single, Andrew Smith walked, Max Hollingsworth whacked a base hit and Ross Tieman a two-run single.

In the second, Rolf singled, Lovercamp walked, and after an out, Jake Hollingsworth drilled an RBI base hit. Wesley and Smith followed with run-producing hits and Tieman again singled in two runs.

Dalton Wilkinson hurled the first six frames for the mound win. He struck out three in a row to start his outing in the bottom of the first and eight total. Curry finished off the game, fanning two in the seventh.

The Chiefs, still the No. 1 team in Class 1, are 10-0 on the season.
