On Tuesday, April 16th, Coach Graham’s Rye high School Thunderbolts took on Las Animas for the second time in a week. Coach started Senior Jackson Ortiz, who threw 45 pitches before being relieved by Robert Buford. Buford held Las Animas in check through the 6th inning, when Coach decided to bring in Senior Damon Elarton as a “closer” to seal the deal. Rye’s hitters came through again, with Damon Elarton going two for four with three RBIs, and Freshman Brock Benz going two for three with 1 RBI. Rye continued their winning streak, winning nine to three.

On Saturday, April 20th, Rye’s baseball team travelled east again for a double-header against League rivals County Line and Crowley County.

In the first game against County Line, Coach Graham started pitching ace Damon Elarton. Elarton was in for the long haul, throwing the full seven innings with 106 pitches. He only gave up two hits, but Rye’s defense committed three errors in the contest. Elarton did struggle in the second inning, tossing 42 pitches with walks and hitting batters. “Wear It”. He then re-focussed in the next frame, getting out of the inning with only 6 pitches. Rye’s bats again came to life and saved the day, with Brice Benz going two for three with an RBI, and Jackson Ortiz going two for three with one RBI. Rye finally put their hits together, scoring seven runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to pull ahead. County Line’s defense, or lack of, assisted the Thunderbolt effort by committing seven errors in the game. Rye came away with another “W”, winning the contest 12-5.
