Diamond Dawgs Break Out the Bats in Beating the Monarchs

By Brad Hallier


HUTCHINSON – A day after getting great pitching in an exciting extra-innings win over the Cheney Diamond Dawgs, the Hutchinson Monarchs allowed 14 hits Monday in a 15-5 loss to Cheney at Hobart-Detter Field.

Nine Diamond Dawgs had at least one hit, led by three each from Cole Miears and Alex Epp. The duo combined for four extra-base hits as well, and Epp added a home run.

The Monarchs took a 2-1 lead after two innings, as Jaxson Anderson hit a two-run home run. But by the time the Monarchs batted again, they were down 7-2, as the Diamond Dawgs scored six runs on five hits in the top of the third inning against losing pitcher Corbin Hawkins.

Cheney scored in every inning after, including four in the seventh inning, which enabled the Diamond Dawgs to win by mercy rule.

Anderson and Bryce Logan led the Monarchs with two hits each.

The Monarchs, who fell to 5-2, will wrap up the four-game set against Cheney with a 7 p.m. game tonight in Cheney. The Diamond Dawgs have won two of the first three games.
