Devils destroy Aspen

Andrew Harley

The Devils are working on an impressive season, considering their 11-1 record – 6-1 in conference.

“We needed to wake up our bats today,” said Eagle Valley coach Derek Cordes. “And we scored 23 runs with only three walks, so there were a lot of hits.”

Drew Pietrack picked up his first varsity win in an impressive pitching day for the Devils, which included three pitchers and a strikeout to end the game from Manny Varela – in his first varsity appearance as a pitcher.

Eagle Valley bats were led by J.J. Alvis, who smashed a home run over the center-field fence.

The bottom of the fourth inning saw a seemingly unending offensive barrage from the Devils. Justin Wood had a two-run double and was followed by Craig Jagger, who doubled to knock Wood in.

Later in the inning, Wood and Jagger had back-to-back RBI singles.

The Devils didn’t make many mistakes in their veritable hitting clinic against Aspen. However, Cordes says they still have things to work on. Namely, the five mishandled balls the Devils had in the field.

“I’m having a lot of fun,” said Cordes. “This is a great group of guys, and I’m really enjoying coaching them.”

Eagle Valley faces Basalt in a double header this Saturday.
