Rye opened up a doubleheader against the Trinidad Miners with a pitching duel. Rye gave senior Brandon Johnson the ball, and he didn’t fail to impress. Johnson worked through six innings, allowing only one run on three hits. Johnson struck out seven Miners in the game. Rye struggled to get things going as well, but finally broke through with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth. Kevin Bailey, Austin Gookin, and Bailey Benz drove in runs. With a 3-1 lead entering the top of the seventh, Rye called on Bailey to shut it down. He struck out the side for a perfect seventh to secure the save.

In game two, sophomore Damon Elarton pitched a complete game for Rye. He allowed four runs (only one earned) and struck out four. Rye benefitted greatly from a nine run bottom of the fourth. The Bolts would pull out a 12-4 win. Bryce Benz had a great game, driving in two and scoring three times. Coach Stacey Graham on the game said: “These were good wins that we needed. We started 0-2 in league play and getting two back to get to .500 is huge for us. We played good, clean, well rounded baseball.”
