The Winslow Bulldogs defeated the Roadrunners 10-0 behind the no hit, shutout pitching of Kuster Kinlecheenie last Tuesday in Holbrook. The win left the Bulldogs with a record of 15-8.
Kinlecheenie went the full five innings. He fanned three and walked one, but the runner who walked was thrown out stealing, allowing Kinlecheenie to face the minimum number of batters in his near perfect game.
Winslow took a 4-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a walk, a home run by Colton Corum, another walk, and doubles by Adrian Montoya and C.J. Chacon. The lead grew to 7-0 in the second inning on a walk, an error and a home run by Cirre. Singles by Corum and Cirre in the fourth inning plated a run to increase the lead to 8-0. A single by Rey Chavez-Velez and a home run by Vincenzio Sells increased the lead to 10-0 in the top of the fifth and allowed the game to end on the 10-run mercy rule when Holbrook failed to score in the bottom of the inning.
Montoya and Chacon were 2 for 3 to lead the Bulldogs at the plate, with Chacon having a double. Corum and Cirre were both 2 for 4 with a home run and Corum added a double. Chavez-Velez was 1 for 2. Sells was 1 for 3 with a home run.
The Bulldogs will journey to Show Low today (April 23) to meet the Cougars, host the Round Valley Elks on Saturday, and journey to Snowflake to end the regular season against the Lobos next Wednesday.
