Sophomore Cenyon Scarborough tried to help his pitching work with a pair of hits, but Socorro was outgunned in a 19-3 loss to Cobre on April 15.

The Warriors collected four hits, with Alex Amaro (2 runs scored) and David Gutierrez getting one rap each.

The Indians went to work early at the plate with a four-run first inning, a five-run second, and owned a 12-run lead after the third frame.

Despite the pitching work of Gutierrez, Rojelio Silva, Warren Kurtnacker, and Gabriel Giron, Cobre ran away with the second game 19-2.

Scarborough, Gutierrez, and Sebastian Mercado had one hit each for Socorro, which amounted to two runs scored in the third inning.

Socorro still has a chance at a postseason run and has a favorable three-game home stretch to close out the season against Hatch Valley (April 26) and on April 29 in a doubleheader against Gallup.

The Warriors are 2-14-1 overall and 0-5 in District 3-3A play.
