Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, April 22, 2015 5C , Greenville remains perfe :t in Evergreen League, beats Dunsmuir Greg Knight Sports Editor The Greenville Indians managed to stay perfect in Evergreen League standings last week by capturing a pair of wins, 7-1 and 15-5, against Dunsmuir at home in a doubleheader. It wasn't all smooth sailing for head coach Mike Chelotti's team, however, in the late game. After taking the easy, six-run win in the early game, the Indians got a scare put into them as the Tigers slapped up a 2-0 lead in the top of the first offruns from their Nos. 1 and 2 batters. After pitcher Darian Potts collected himself on the mound he, along with some help from catcher Ray Bustamante, first baseman Landin Carmichael and shortstop Carter Kingdon, was able to put away the next five Dunsmuir batters and runners and get a chance at some Indian offense. Oh, what an offense it was. Beginning with leadoff batter James Martinez, Greenville was able to throw down a six-run inning that included scores by Landin Carmichael in the No. 2 slot and Logan Carmichael at cleanup, with Brent Washoe, Dalton Johns and Bustamante adding to the drive as well. The Tigers were able put up two more runs in the top of the second to make it 6-4, but Potts managed a pair of strikeouts, with infield helping out with three other hitters and runners to retire the side. It was a quiet inning in the third for both teams, but everyone seemed to roar back into baseball existence in the fourth as the Tigers crept ever closer after another run made it 6-5 in favor of the Indians. Visibly upset over the way the Indians were playing at that point in the game, Chelotti drew the team together at the mound for a discussion -- and he must have said something right, as the Greenville squad put away the next four runners and batters. Whatever Chelotti said must have spurred the offense as well since the team put together another six-run inning with Landin Carmichael adding his third run of the day, followed by a triple and eventual score from Potts, and reaches by Washoe, Johns, Bustamante, Brian Deal and Kingdon. Up 14-5 in the bottom of the fifth, Potts was able to seal the deal for Greenville after blasting a single to right, stealing to second and getting the send to home off a sacrifice bunt RBI from Logan Carmichael. Offensively, Bustamante led his team with two runs, a hit and two RBI. Martinez penciled a pair of doubles (Johns and Bustamante had one apiece) and Potts record a triple. Both Carmichael brothers managed a pair of stolen bases as well. Over on the defensive side, Logan Carmichael, Kingdon, Deal and Washoe all earned 1.000 fielding percentages after combining for nine of the game's 15 putouts. At the mound, Potts nailed eight strikeouts against 22 Tiger batters. The win ups Greenville to 13-4 overall and 6-0 in league standings. The Indians will play a doubleheader against Big Valley today, starting at 2 p.m. The matchup is important, as both teams are standing at 6-0 in league. The Indians will host a twinbill with Happy Camp this Friday, April 24, with the first pitch scheduled for 2 p.m. Early game Greenville 7 Dunsmuir 1 The Indians won the first game with ease after holding Dunsmuir to a single run in the top of the first inning. With Martinez at the mound, the Indians put away six of the Tigers' 18 batters on strikeouts and one on a pick-off at second. Potts was the overall stud of the game, scoring three runs, smashing two hits -- one for an RBI -- and managing four stolen bases. Martinez snagged three steals, Johns secured two and Logan Carmichael also robbed the Tigers of a bag in the game. The runs for the Indians came early and often as Martinez, Landin Carmichael, Potts and Logan Carmichael all scored in the bottom of the first. Martinez and Potts did it again in the second and Potts put up his third run in the fourth off an RBI by Logan Carmichael. Defensively, every infielder Dalton Johns makes the slide into .home in the late game of the doubleheader.

Bustamante went .857 after an error at the plate. Greenville softball Dunsmuir 13, Greenville 0 Dunsmuir 14, Greenville 0 The Lady Indians fell to 1-9 on the season and 0-4 in league after the Lady Tigers dispatched them in both games of a doubleheader. Next up for Greenville will be an April 28 battle with the Quincy Trojans at home. Game time is set for 4 p.m. Chester routs Indians in late-inning thriller Greg Knight Sports Editor After taking the better part of two weeks off from competition, the Chester Volcanoes baseball team met Greenville last week at home, besting the Indians on an 8-4 final score. The game saw Vols outfielder Matt Blanton smash a homer over the center field fence midway through a fifth-inning rally by Chester. At starter for Chester, pitcher Spencer Lee managed to allow only a double by Greenville's James Martinez, at the top of the order, to start the first inning before striking out Darian Potts and Landin Carmichael for the second and third outs. Lee was so accurate throughout the game he was able to pencil in strikeouts against nine of 29 batters and took the win while allowing on seven hits. Offensively, Blanton was the man of the game; the junior not only garnered a run in the fourth and his homer in the fifth, but also managed three RBIs and had a double, barely missing a chance to hit for the cycle against the Indians. He also added a stolen base to his stats after making a tight slide into third against Brent Washoe. The game was all about Chester in the early going as the Vols tacked a 3-0 lead on the scoreboard in the first four innings -- courtesy of Nick Cancilla and Damon Stephens crossing on RBIs from Caleb Sylvester and Adam Branch in the second and Eddy Perez making it home in the bottom of the fourth off another Branch RBI single. Greenville could not be counted out, however, and in the top of the fifth, with two outs already in the book, Carter Kingdon and Martinez reached on a Landin Carmichael two-RBI single, after which he also made it home on an RBI single by Potts. Tied up at 3-3, the Vols embarked on a dual mission in the bottom of the fifth: avoid more Greenville hits, all while scoring more runs via the Chester offense. Leading off the order for the Vols, Tristan James was walked by Washoe and subsequently stole a pair of bases before reaching on a Blanton RBI double. Blanton and Cancilla rounded out the offensive push in the inning as they traveled home on RBIs from Stephens and Sylvester, leading to a about overcoming another two-out situation for Chester after Washoe managed to strike out Jason Schlueter and James popped out to Kingdon at second base. A follow-up single and steal by Lee was merely a preamble to Blanton's moonshot, a hit that sailed deep over the center field fence and scored them both for the 8-3 final score -- as Greenville failed to find any offensive mettle 6-3 tally for Chester after in the botto m O f the seventh. five.
