In game 1 of the DH the offense put it to the Artichokes early scoring 5 runs in the 2nd and 3rd inning and an extra in the 5th to make it a 6-0 ball game. Alex Tovalin had another great start as he went the distance for the Apaches allowing 3 hits 3 runs (1 earned) while only giving up 1 walk and striking out 2. Offensively, Jamori Blash and Alexander Marco were the leading hitters in the game but all nine guys were locked in. Marco ended the game going 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run. Blash went 2 for 3 with 3 RBI’s of a bomb and a run. Jacob Thoning and Robert Valenzuela would each have an RBI in the game, as well.

In game 2 of the DH the offense would stay hot. The Apaches combined for a total of 14 hits on the game. Logan Bottrell (3), Alexander Marco (2), Alex Cornell (4), and Max Draijer (2) were the four with multi-hit games. Luis Hidalgo, Bottrell, Marco, Thoning and Max Draijer each all had at least an RBI in the game. Bottrell had a break out game going 3 for 3 with with 2 walks, a run scored, and 2 RBI’s off his bomb to right field. Be careful ACCAC teams because the Apaches offense is starting to figure it out and that means more runs for an effective pitching staff who struck out 11 and only walked two in the 2nd game. Jerry Ochoa went 3.1 innings before Anthony Toribio came in to relieve him. Toribio went 3.2 innings only giving up 3 hits 1 run (1 earned) while walking 1 and striking out 5. Aaron Vernon came in again to shut the door going 2 innings allowing 0 runs and walking 1 while striking out 2.

The Cochise College Apaches are finding ways to win at just the right time because it is the month of April. They are now 33-9 overall and 16-6 in the ACCAC which gives them a Ranking of #6 in the nation. Come support them as they try and continue their streak against Chandler-Gilbert on Saturday at noon.
