Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 4, 2021

Dimond 10, Chugiak 0

Miah Eneix racked up 13 strikeouts and allowed one hit over five innings as the Lynx scored early and often to easily win the Cook Inlet Conference league game at Bartlett High School.

The senior southpaw struck out eight of the first nine batters before Chugiak center fielder Camden Costanios singled to lead off the fourth inning.

Eneix struck out the side in the first, second and fourth innings. He faced a bases loaded situation in the fourth but ended the threat on a three-pitch strikeout.

Dimond catcher Logan Sweet’s two-run double made the score 4-0 in the second inning. Third baseman Luke Smith had two RBIs, including one in his team’s six-run fourth inning.

The Lynx (5-0, 1-0 CIC) have reached double figures in all five games this season and score an averaging of 13.4 runs per game.

The Dimond-Chugiak rivalry is one of the most competitive in CIC history. Since 1992, the all-time series is tied 28-28 in 56 all-time meetings.

South 10, Service 0

Starting pitcher Ryan Watson pitched four no-hit innings and second baseman Oliver Brown drove in three runs as South cruised to victory in a Cook Inlet Conference league game at Bartlett High School.

South pitchers combined for 13 strikeouts – 10 from Watson and three by reliever Reece Ivanoff, who pitched a clean fifth to seal the deal.

Brown batted 2-for-3 and scored two runs. Teammates Sean Giffen, Thomas Pease, Lucas Wilkins and Joey Serra each had RBIs. Maddux Soland scored twice.

The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 CIC) are fresh off their win at last week’s Buddy Dale Invitational in Wasilla.

Service's Andrew Hickman struck out four batters and gave up three runs in 3.1 innings. Second baseman Hunter Christian and first baseman James Ivey both drew walks for the Cougars (1-4, 0-1).

South now leads the all-time series 17-12 dating back to 2005.
