Just like that — season over.

Junior Orlando Machado winds up to pitch to Coconino High School, No. 6 seed in the Division III state tournament, during No. 5 seed Mingus Union High School’s 14-10 home victory April 25. Machado’s home run was the only highlight of the Marauders’ opening state tournament home loss in five innings to Gila Ridge High School of Yuma.

After a start to its first Division II season that dreams are made on, the Mingus Union High School baseball team’s season was put to sleep Tuesday, May 6, by the perfect nightmare — a 15-1, five-inning home loss in the Marauders’ state tournament opener to No. 12 seed Gila Ridge High School.

Junior Orlando Machado’s solo home run in the second inning was the only highlight for the Marauders [23-7-1] on a gusty day in which his pitches, as well as those of starter Marshall Shill and two others, were driven into the gaps of the infield and outfield, while virtually every MUHS hit found its way into a Gila Ridge glove.  

“Hey, they’re a good team,” said head baseball coach Bob Young. “They made every play.”
