Skins Split Baseball Action

La Veta-  The Redskins improved their record to 7-2  with a dominating victory over  Antonito on Tuesday 14-5.  Earlier in the week the Skins split their games with the Sanford Farmers in a double header.  Jon Brunelli pitched 6 great innings and gave up two runs off four hits as La Veta won 4-2.  In the second game, Chris Trenkman gave up 10 hits and five runs as the Skins lost 5 to 2.  Weather permitting, the Skins will travel to Sargent Saturday then will be at home on Tuesday against Cotipaxi.
