The Carbon Dinos, having wrapped up the number one seed out of Region 14 on Friday, hosted Desert Hills on Tuesday to wrap up the regular season.
Carbon lost the game 15-4. Carbon sent a total of 15 batters to the plate and used four different pitchers. The Dinos managed just three hits in the game, with Cody Lowe, Anthony Jones and Nate Olson contributing them. All three were singles.
Carbon honored nine seniors before the game. Triton Abeyta, Zac Bradley, Cesar Laya, Jaxon Leonard, Cody Lowe, Nate Olson, JP Powell, Talen Richardson and Jadon Robertson smiled for the crowd as they were about to take the field for the last time in a regular season game.
The game against Desert Hills, a 4A team, did not factor into playoff seeding.
Carbon (16-8, 9-1 Region 14) will host the first and second rounds of the 3A Playoffs, beginning Saturday. Carbon will face Region 15 number six seed Emery at 10 a.m. Grand and Morgan will then play at 12:30 p.m. The losers of the first two games will then play at 3 p.m. The winners will take part in the night cap at 5 p.m. Because the Dinos are hosting the event, they have chosen to play the 5:30 p.m. game regardless of whether they win or lose in the 10 a.m. game.
All of Saturday’s games will be broadcast live on ETV Channel 10 and online at www.etv10news.com/livesports/carbon-high-school/
