Park City • Compared with Tuesday’s perfect 20-0 win over Union, an 8-1 win over the same team didn’t shine quite as bright in the Miners’ eyes.

Still, a solid six-inning start by Conner Lagnese to go with some good baserunning by Park City went a long way, even if the Miners were their own toughest critics Thursday on their home field. Starting out 2-0 in Region 10 is hardly something to sniff at.

"I don’t think anyone played exceptionally well," Lagnese said. "And we still got the job done. We just really need to take advantage of every opportunity."

If Park City did have an MVP for the game, Lagnese was close to it. He didn’t have his best day on the mound, walking six batters, but he managed to keep the Cougars scoreless for all of his six innings of work. His glove helped him pick up the slack in his pitching, as he picked off a runner and made a few put-outs in the field.

He was even better at the plate, going 3-for-3 with two singles and a double. Cole Tan was the only other Miner to record a multiple-hit outing, but Park City made the most of its runners, scoring every inning. After taking a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first, the team kept growing its lead.

Part of the formula was sacrifice plays — the Miners had four for the game, including a pair of sac flies by Nate Stanley. But there were missed chances: With the bases loaded in the fifth and no outs, Park City managed just one run.

Coach Lou Green was somewhat grim about his team’s inefficiencies. They were all the more glaring because of Tuesday’s outing, when Mark Trevino pitched a perfect game and the Miners had 10 extra-base hits.

"If we play more like we did today, we’re not going to get by other teams in our region," Green said. "That’s mostly what concerns me. We have to play more aggressively and get those runs in."

Union had a better effort than earlier in the week, but it still couldn’t get much going. The Cougars managed only three hits, narrowly avoiding another shutout with a run in the seventh inning.

Starter Wyatt Kesler wasn’t shelled, but he walked five batters and struck out none in four innings. Union didn’t help itself with six errors.
