Baseball roundup: Holy Family wins District 4

Posted

BROOMFIELD — The Holy Family baseball team is getting hot at the right time.

Since falling to Faith Christian, the Tigers have won 10 in a row, including sweeping the District 4 tournament on Saturday — topping Roaring Fork 12-2 and St. Mary’s 11-0.

“We played well,” Holy Family coach Marc Cowell said. “The hitting has been an approach we’ve been working on since the Faith Christian doubleheader and the guys have done a great job with that approach.” 

Since the loss to the Eagles, Holy Family has outscored its opponents 138-28. And on Saturday the Tigers bats were hot — making quick work of their opponents.

Three Holy Family batters homered against Roaring Fork. Matt Erb and Devlin Granberg each sit solo home runs — Erb in the first and Granberg in the third. Jacob Tinnon hit a two-run home run in the second.

Austin Brown earned the win on the mound for the Tigers, striking out eight batters and allowing one hit and two runs.

The Tigers didn’t let up against St. Mary’s, scoring seven runs in the second and adding four more in the fourth.

Erb also had a solo shot in the second game and finished the day going 4-5 with four runs and three RBIs.

Tinnon was 5-5 with four runs and three RBIs, while Granberg was 2-5 with four runs and 2 RBIs.

Zach Trombley gave up only three hits in five innings and didn’t allow a run to get the win against the Pirates.

NORTHGLENN FALLS TO CHAPARRAL

No. 15 Northglenn (16-4) had its season come to an end on Saturday, falling 10-0 to No. 2-seeded Chaparral.

The Wolverines scored eight runs in the second to cruise by the Norse.

Northglenn topped No. 18 Legacy in the opening round, scoring three runs in the first and adding three more in the

The Lightning’s lone run came in the second after Devin Payne got on base with a double and scored on Wyatt Cross’

single.

The Norse won the EMAC league title after going a perfect 9-0 in league play.

Senior Jacob Saunders had a team-high 30 hits for the Norse, while Pedro Montes finished the season with 20 RBIs to lead Northglenn.

Senior Jakob Bublitz led Legacy (13-6) with 22 hits and 17 RBIs.

innings.
