Whiptails can't slow Tucson's roll

TUCSON, AZ -

The Tucson Saguaros plated six runs in the fifth inning to cruise Thursday night to a 10-1 victory over the California City Whiptails at Kino Stadium.  

Starting pitcher Matt Kelly (5-0) had another fine outing giving up only one run on six hits in seven innings.

Left fielder Nick Vitale went two-for-four with two RBI and catcher Darryl Baca collected a hit in each of his last four at bats. 

Burnell Dailey had two hits and a pair of RBI.

The Saguaros (32-10) won for the 12th time in 13 games and remain on top of Pacific Division of the Pecos League, holding a three-game advantage over Bakersfield.

The club is in their first year under new manager 25-year old Kirby Campbell who our Sports Director Damien Alameda chatted with prior to Thursday night's game.

California City and Tucson meet again at Kino Stadium tomorrow and again on Saturday.
