Canyon Baseball Rolls to Convincing Win at Levelland
Posted By: Mike Roden - 3/30/2019 12:00:00 AM

The Canyon Eagles dominated in every facet of the game as they beat Levelland 12-0 on Friday. 

The Eagles offense was in high gear, jumping on the Lobos early with two runs in the first inning, three more in the third, one in the sixth and then blew the game wide open with six runs in the 7th inning. Canyon racked up 11 hits, led by Clay Artho, who smashed two doubles, driving in two runs and scoring twice. Cash Hamby also had two hits with an RBI and scored four times. Brett Cobb also finished with two hits. Canyon was also helped by 6 Lobos' errors. 

Canyon had another outstanding performance by a pair of pitchers. Starter and winner Cade Olson tossed four shutout innings, allowing 3 hits with 3 strikeouts.  He managed to work out of a bases loaded jam in the 2nd inning. Blake Rodriguez took over in the fifth and kept the shutout going, giving up just 3 hits with four strikeouts.

Defense also played a big role in the win as the Eagles did not commit an error in the field. Catcher Trent Hefner gunned down two base runners. 

Canyon stays perfect in the 3-4A race, improving to 4-0 and now prepares for a big series with 2nd place Estacado. The Eagles and Matadors meet Tuesday at 5 p.m. in Canyon and again on Friday at 7 p.m. in Lubbock.
