Trevor Wick was knocked around for 10 runs in four innings, and Alpine’s Daniel Williams tossed seven innings of one-run ball as the Garden City Wind were routed, 12-1, Tuesday evening in at Clint Lightner Stadium.
After Caleb Davidson opened the scoring for Alpine with an RBI double in the first, the Wind answered with a run-scoring double of their own, when Eddy Milian drove in Cole Fenner to knot the score at one.
But from there, Williams was sharp, and Alpine’s offense continued to roll, finishing the game just before the Tuesday night storm rolled into the area.
The loss is the Wind’s fourth consecutive setback as they fall to 5-21, dead last in the Mountain Division of the Pecos League. Meanwhile, Alpine improved to 18-9 — though, Alpine fell a half-game further behind Mountain Division-leader Trinidad (20-7), which won both ends of a doubleheader Tuesday.
Williams scattered six Wind hits across his seven innings, while walking just two and striking out four. Wick finished with three walks and 10 hits, and struck out none. Milian’s first-inning double was the only extra-base hit of the Wind’s night.
The two teams are set to meet again at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
