3A State Championship

Eaton scored seven runs in the third inning as the school won its second consecutive Class 3A baseball championship with a 13-0 victory Saturday over Holy Family.

Logan Hall allowed just two hits in a complete game shutout, striking out seven and walking two. The win caps an undefeated 25-0 season.

Center fielder Bryce Ruff had a two-RBI double, catcher Bennett Pickar had a two-RBI single and Tanner Anderson and Tyler Wallace had an RBI apiece as Eaton jumped to a 10-0 lead in the third.

The championship game ended after five innings.

5A State Championship

Marco Gonzales picked up his third win in a title game as Rocky Mountain won the Class 5A championship with a 10-1 victory over Mountain Vista Saturday.

Gonzales led his team to titles in 2007 and 2008 and did it again this year by striking out eight and allowing four hits in 6 1/3 innings. Byran Peters recorded the last two outs.

Rocky Mountain's offense erupted for all 10 of its runs in the fourth and fifth innings, with Pierce Trumper (3-for-4, four RBI) and Chris Roglen (3-for-4, two RBI) doing most of the scoring.

Mountain Vista (20-6) got on the board in the top of the fourth on a homer by Tommy Clothier.
