Zach Mixson hit a double to drive in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday as the Juneau-Douglas High School baseball team beat Collegiate School of New York 3-2 in Chandler, Ariz.
The Crimson Bears were in Arizona last week for a season-opening series of games at a baseball camp in Chandler during spring break. Friday's win gave Juneau a 4-1 record on the trip going into a game at Prescott, Ariz., on Saturday.
On Friday, Juneau pitchers Jesse Nelson and Ryan Beason did not give up an earned run to the New York team, but Juneau players committed three errors. With the game tied in the final frame, Juneau's Joe Kohan singled, setting up Mixson's game-winning hit.
Juneau split a doubleheader against Pine Creek High School of Colorado Springs, Colo., on Wednesday, winning the opener 10-4 and falling 10-6 in the second game.
Kohan hit a triple and scored three runs, and Chris Dillon had two RBIs in the opener as Beason picked up the win with a five-inning relief outing. In the second game, Kohan had two hits and two runs, and Buzz Ward scored two runs.
On Tuesday, the Crimson Bears posted an 8-4 win over Columbine High School of Littleton, Colo. Mixson, Pat Kohan and Ryan Gorle each hit triples in the win, while Derek Listberger smacked a deep double and drove in two runs. Nelson was the winning pitcher.
Juneau opened the trip last Monday with a 9-6 win over Cushing Academy of Massachusetts. Mixson went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and was the winning pitcher, while Gorle went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles.
While in Arizona, the Crimson Bears also took the opportunity to watch some major league spring training games.
