BLOOMFIELD — Farmington High closed out its non-district schedule with a dominant victory over Bloomfield.

The Scorpions defeated the Bobcats 15-7 on Monday in Bloomfield.

FHS (13-7) used an 11-run top of the third inning to open up a 12-0 lead on the Bobcats.

Scorpions' head coach Sean Trotter was glad to pick up a victory in the team's final game before the district opener.

"I though Lance Lee did a tremendous job on the mound for us throwing strikes and he's been battling an injury to his hamstring," Trotter said. "I was happy with the way we started and the end of the game was just a product of that injury and a depleted bench."

Bloomfield head coach Frank DeHoyos sees the loss as a chance for his team to grow.

"It's one of those things, where you take it, learn from it and hopefully, it makes you better," DeHoyos said.

Ethan Spellbring hit a three-run home run and Austin Davis added a two-run triple during the Scorps offensive outburst.

"Even some of the outs were loud," Trotter said. "I thought we absolutely blistered the ball. Bloomfield hung around, but I thought it was really good at times today."

FHS pushed its lead to 15-0 with three runs in the top of the fourth.

Bloomfield extended the game with a five-run fifth inning, and trimmed the lead to 15-7 heading into the seventh, but were unable to get any closer.

Lee got the win for FHS, pitching three and two-thirds innings allowing just one run in a rare start.

"It felt good.


It's been since Cleveland during the first week that I've pitched," Lee said.

Lee along with Beamer Wick each had two hits for the Scorps in the win.

"Everyone, one through nine, we can rely on to hit," Lee said.

Tyler Barker started the game for Bloomfield, but went just two innings, allowing one run.

Luke Dugan allowed 10 runs in two-thirds of an inning for the Bobcats.

"I told the guys that we were going to throw by committee," DeHoyos said. "We just haven't had any time to get in work and when you run your bullpen at Farmington High, well there you go."

FHS opens its district season today against Kirtland Central, while Bloomfield will be in action on Saturday against Thoreau.

"We haven't seen them," Trotter said of the Broncos. "They've been up and down a little bit, but we're looking forward to getting it rolling."
