Broncos down Pocatello behind Dahle's pitching

Blackfoot runner slides into third safely.

POCATELLO – The Blackfoot Broncos sent hard-throwing righthander Candon Dahle to the mound for the first game of a doubleheader against Pocatello on Wednesday and the future Golden Eagle of the College of Southern Idaho responded with a complete game, four-hitter with six strikeouts and no walks as the Broncos came from behind to beat Pocatello 4-2.

Pocatello struck first in the contest, when they plated a pair of runs in the bottom of the third, both of them unearned in response to the Broncos’ only error of the contest, but the Broncos would come right back in the top of the fifth to score three times on their way to the win. The Broncos would add an insurance run in the top of the seventh for the final score of 4-2.

The story of the game, however, was the pitching of Dahle, who was in complete control of the contest as he worked his way through the Pocatello lineup without giving up a walk and scattering four hits in the contest. Dahle was in such complete control of the game that he only threw 89 pitches during the game.

The Broncos’ offense accumulated nine hits in the game, with Stryker Wood and Eli Hayes each collecting a pair of hits.
