Moffat County High School boys varsity baseball — 2010

Record: 5-3, 3-2 WSL

The Moffat County High School boys varsity baseball team was looking for its first victory of the year.

The team faced this situation: one down, bottom of the seventh, man on second, game tied at 9-9.

Enter Dylon Camilletti.

Playing Saturday in Rifle, Camilletti had a chance to split the doubleheader for MCHS.

The team had fallen earlier, 15-5, to open its season, but Camilletti wasn’t thinking about the score.

“A lot of times when you go up in those situations, you get tense,” he said. “I was just trying to relax and stay focused, and do what I had to do.”

With MCHS’ Carlos Maldonado leading off second base, Rifle’s pitcher threw a fastball to Camilletti, the Bulldogs’ shortstop.

A quick flick of the wrists sent the ball to centerfield, and the Bulldogs to a 10-9 victory.

Bubba Ivers picked up the win on the mound.

Halen Raymond started the nightcap and allowed nine runs in 5.1 innings.

Raymond, a senior, threw a career-high 112 pitches.

The Bulldogs built up an 8-3 lead behind Raymond.

But as Rifle began creeping back, Raymond said he wasn’t worried about the possibility of a loss.

“I didn’t even think about it — I was too focused on pitching,” he said. “I knew my fielders had me, no matter what.”

Camilletti, Kulen Turner and Maldonado all finished the second game with two RBIs.

Raymond, Ivers, Nathan Hill and Devon Enochs all added an RBI.

Rifle led off with two runs in the first inning.

MCHS came back with three runs in the bottom of the inning.

The Bears added a run in the third inning, but in the bottom half of the inning the Bulldogs added five runs to lead, 8-3.

The Bears would not go away, however, and closed the gap to 8-7.

In the sixth inning, Rifle scored a pair of runs to take a 9-8 lead.

Ivers entered for Raymond, and pitched 1.2 scoreless innings to keep MCHS in the game.

In the bottom half of the sixth inning, Costello hit a double, and Raymond drove him in with a single to tie the game and set up Camilletti’s heroics.

Hill started the first game for the Bulldogs, and logged 3.1 innings while allowing 11 runs.

Ivan Nielsen came in and finished the game while allowing four runs.

Hill got the Bulldogs started early with an RBI double, but Rifle responded with three runs in the bottom half of the first inning.

The Bulldogs would score again in the third inning after catcher Scott Costello singled and Nielsen hit a sacrifice fly to drive him home to give MCHS a 4-3 advantage.

Rifle would add another three in the bottom of the third and seven in the fourth inning.

The Bulldogs will next play Friday in Montrose.
