On Monday, April 27th, the Rye Thunderbolt baseball team hosted Ellicot for an

evening home game. The contest was moved from Colorado City to Runyon Field in Pueblo due to impending weather. Coach Graham started freshman Brock Benz, who threw four shutout innings. According to Graham, Benz pitched “very well”, giving up only two hits. After four innings, Benz was relieved by Robert Buford, who finished the game. During the contest, Rye had eight hits, scoring 14 runs. Rye did commit two errors on defense, which contributed to Ellicot’s only run. Brock Benz was again consistent with the bat, going three for four with two RBIs. Johnny Marquez also had a good day at the plate. He smacked a double, which scored three runs. Rye won the game, 14-1 in five innings.

Saturday, April 27th, was a beautiful day for baseball. The Rye Thunderbolts hosted league rival Swink for a double header. The stands were filled, and extra fans from both teams spread out their lawn chairs to experience America’s pastime.

Coach Graham called on Senior Damon Elarton for the start. Elarton had great velocity on his fast ball, and his breaking ball was fooling Swink batters all day. The home plate Umpire was calling strikes high in the zone, and Elarton took advantage of it. Swink batters couldn’t catch up to the pitch. Elarton totaled six strikeouts for the effort. He was relieved by Robert Buford, who also had two strikeouts. Swink managed only two hits in the game.
