The Canyon baseball team used two big innings to pick up its second Foothill League win and keep Golden Valley searching for its first.

Canyon plated six runs in the second inning of its 11-3 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday at Golden Valley High School.

Jarrett Ellis got the Cowboys (7-13-1 overall, 2-8 Foothill League) off and running with a RBI single that scored Cole Mears to tie the game at one. Travis Gorman then scored Austin Ragusin with a RBI single of his own to give Canyon a permanent lead. The Cowboys scored another four runs in the inning and never looked back.

“We finally scored some runs,” said Canyon head coach Adam Schulhofer. “We’ve been hitting the ball the last couple of games but haven’t scored a lot. We hit stuff hard today and made some things happen. And we had some strong pitching that carried us as well.”

Jon Dicey got the win for the Cowboys, pitching five innings and only allowing two runs on four hits while striking out four.

Canyon opened up its offense again in the fifth, this time scoring four. That inning was highlighted by Vincent Fitzgerald’s two-run triple.

Fitzgerald, who led the team with three RBIs, later scored on a Cole Mears single to left field to put the Cowboys ahead 11-2.

In all, Canyon had 14 hits and had four players have multi-hit games. Chris Jenkins went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBIs. Jarrett Ellis was the hot bat for the Cowboys, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBIs.

Golden Valley senior James Mendoza was the only player for the Grizzlies (4-18, 0-10) to have two hits. He went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Canyon will go for a sweep of the Grizzlies on Friday at Canyon High. The Cowboys have had their two biggest scoring games against Golden Valley this year. They won 17-0 in the first meeting between the teams on March 26.
