■ Broncos take two over weekend (El Dorado Times)
Ryan Gebhart continues to pile up impressive numbers for the El Dorado Broncos.
First, he's hit safely in seven straight games.
Second, he's reached base via hit, walk and/or hit-by-pitch in 13 straight games.
Third, by going 1 for 2 Sunday, he reached the magic figure of .400. Should he finish at that figure, he would be the seventh leading hitter ever for the Broncos and fourth in wood-bat records for the Broncos.
Gebhart hit a long three-run homer Friday night to highlight a nine-run sixth inning for the Broncos in their 12-2 victory over the Park City Rangers.
He also made a diving-tumbling catch in center to rob Park City's Mike Williams of extra bases.
