The Broncos donated their time and energy today to help the local food bank sort food. 15 members of the team took a couple hours out of their busy schedule to help out in the community. The staff said it would have taken their small crew 8 -9 hours to complete the task. Since the guys did such a nice job so quickly, we all decided to do it again next week with another big task to help food bank out. Great Job guys!
Boise State took game 1 by the score of 9-5 in a 9 inning game. Tyson Dellasilva pitched a complete game only needing 112 pitches to finish off ISU, striking out 7 and stranding 8 runners. Broncos bats came alive banging out 14 hits with Tyson leading the charge with a 4-6 game and Charles Bertolli chipping in 2 key hits. Game two was another pitching dual with Nick Patla losing a heart wrenching 1-3 game that should have been won with the performance Nick gave, only throwing 60 pitches and spreading out 5 hits. Game three was just the opposite as the Broncos exploded for 15 hits in a complete 16-5 beat down of the talented Bengals. Kjell Holmes pitched a complete game, spreading 7 hits and getting the big outs in key situations. Taylor Archuletta went 3-4 from the plate, Cooper Thomas was 3-5, Seth Osgood was 2-3, Charles Bertolli was 2-4, Tyson Dellasilva was 3-5. Several Broncos had a huge weekend with the bats, but none larger than Tysons 7-13 performance, Cooper 6-13, Taylor 5-11, Charles 4-8 and Rylan Kobre 4-9.
The Broncos had a strong showing over the weekend in their series against Blue Mountain C.C. varsity team. Just goes to show how far club baseball has come in the past couple years when we can not only compete but win against scholarship players. Game one was a 9-8 victory with Nick Palta starting on the bump and going 5 innings and spreading out 6 hits, Kjell Holmes then came in and finish it off with 4 innings of 4 hit ball. Blue Mtn. couldn`t keep the top of the Bronco order off the bags! Cooper Thomas, Rich Hoppe and Tyson Dellasilva were on 15-18 at bats, scored 5 runs and had 9 hits. Game two was a pitching dual with Tyson Dellasilva going toe to toe with their best pitchers. The Broncos had more hits, fewer errors and generally out played the other team everywhere but on the scoreboard, we just didn`t get that key hit in a tough, well played 1-4 loss. Game three was also very well played by the Broncos as Marcus Brother took a 3-2 lead into the 6th inning, our exhausted 5 man pitching staff just couldn`t hold against a roster with 15+ pitchers. Still we out hit the other team, committed fewer errors and hustled to the end in a 4-7 loss. Blue Mountains coach after the game expressed his and his teams new earned respect for our club.
