State 4A baseball: Ponderosa splits with Holy Family, wins state title

Posted

PUEBLO -- Ponderosa High School captured the state 4A baseball title the hard way June 26.

The Mustangs topped Holy Family 11-2 in the second game of a championship doubleheader at Colorado State University-Pueblo. 

It seemed like every time the Tigers rallied, the Mustangs had an answer.  Izaak Siefken led off the third inning with a home run for the Tigers. Ponderosa countered with two tallies in the last of the third, including an RBI double by Dylan Carey.

Ponderosa added Kolton MIller's two-run double and Dylan Carey's RBI double to its lead in the fourth inning.

Holy Family scored a run in the fifth inning when Connor Cooney was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. But the Mustangs countered that with Miller's third RBI of the game. In this instance, he drew a bases-loaded walk. Derek Lukes, Skyler Ahern, Gabe Jacobs and Parker Dennis added RBIs in the sixth inning for Ponderosa.

Ponderosa pitching held the Tigers to just four hits -- Siefken, Jared Delgado (a double), Cord Kringlen and Jacob Syverson. Syverson struck out five in five innings of pitching.

Holy Family kept its season alive with a 10-4 win over the Mustangs in the first game of the doubleheader. The Tigers scored their 10 runs over their last five turns at bat.

Kringlen had two hits and three RBIs for Holy Family. Brennan Bennett had two base hits and drove in a run. Blake Hammond had six strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings of pitching for HFHS.

Carey had a base hit and two RBIs in the opener.  Skyler Ahern had two hits.
