Broncos take 3 from Wildcats
Boise State got 3 wins from the first place Weber State. Game one was 12-4 win for the Broncos, with Nick Patla getting us off to a good start from the mound throwing a complete game. Nick spread 5 hits around while striking out 7 guys. The offense was lead by Cooper Thomas, Christian Bautista, Angelo Romeo, Joel Perry and Scott “Scooter” Lyness with 2 hits a piece. Game two was much the same with the Broncos pounding out 10 hits in the 9-2 victory. Again Angelo Romeo continued his hot streak with 2 more hits. Nick Patla and Kjell Holmes also had 2 hit games against a much improved Wildcat defense. Angelo Romeo, Taylor Archuleta and Alec Wilson combined to keep Weber State from getting their offense going, holding them to 4 hits while striking out 6. Game 3 was great game to watch as the Broncos jump out to a 6-0 lead, but the Wildcats battle back to tie the game 8-8 in the top of the 6th. Thats when Curtis “Dad” Davidson started the inning with a triple, followed by hits from Rich Hoppe and Angelo Romeo to get the 3 spot in the bottom of the inning. From there Taylor Archulela and Nick Patla took over in relief to shut down them down for the 11-8 win. Rich Hoppe had 4-5 day at the plate, with 2 RBI`s and 2 stolen bases. The Wildcats couldn`t keep Angelo Romeo off the bases this weekend as he went 7-8, with 3 doubles, a triple and 7 RBI`s, he also had a Sac Fly, walk and reach base on a error. Angelo`s work at the plate earned him conference honors as the “Player of the Week”.
