Gulliver Prep’s Joe Dunand continued his scorching hot streak at the plate in the Raiders’ 7-4 win over Belen on Saturday.
Dunand went 2 for 2 with a home run and a triple, which resulted in two RBI. Dunand’s home run was his 10th in his past 17 at-bats.
Last week, Dunand made his presence felt in the batter’s box during Gulliver’s third-place finish at the Horizon National Tournament in Scottsdale, Ariz.
In five games, Gulliver went 4-1 and Dunand batted a head-turning .833 (10 for 12) at the plate with nine home runs. Inexplicably, opposing pitchers kept throwing him pitches to hit and Dunand did just that — his last eight swings during the tournament were all home runs.
The Belen coaching staff was well aware of Dunand’s hot bat, walking the nephew of New York Yankees third-basemen Alex Rodriguez on two occasions.
Davis Brown got the win for Gulliver while German Marcos pitched four innings and struck out five. Gio Soto went 1 for 4 with a double and a team-high three RBI.
