Warriors’ Baseball Team Rolls To Win

Mountain Mail Reports

Socorro baseball coach Alan Edmonson thinks his team may be turning the corner.
The Warriors rebounded from a 9-3 loss to district power Cobre by winning at Hot Springs 16-4 on Tuesday.
Against Hot Springs, Charlie Savedra connected on a three-run homer and Freddie Martinez added a solo shot.
“Overall, we hit better than we had all year,” Edmonson said. “The team we expected to have showed up yesterday.”
Edmonson also was pleased with the pitching performance of Justus Jaramillo, who shut down Hot Springs.
“He tried some different things and made some adjustments,” Edmonson said. “He had not been throwing that well but I am really proud of him.”
Edmonson said the loss to Cobre was closer than the score indicated.
“We were leading 2-0 in the third inning and we made an error that led to four runs,” Edmonson said.
The Warriors (9-10, 2-1) will host Cobre, which has played in the past three state title games, on Friday for a doubleheader at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
“We have no choice we have to win both if we want to have any chance at winning district,” Edmonson said.
The Socorro baseball coach also is optimistic about the rest of the season.
“I am pleased that kids are starting to make adjustments and they need to be more coachable and they have done that,” Edmonson said. “I have seen improvement in our play.
“I would rather have a terrible record and peak at the end of the season than have a great record and not playing our best baseball.”
