The Santa Fe Fuego avenged an 8-6 loss to Taos on Thursday night by shutting out the Blizzard 11-0 in a Pecos League baseball game at Fort Marcy Ballpark on Friday night for their ninth win in the last 11 games.

Santa Fe (35-20) didn’t score until center fielder Nick Billinger brought in pitcher Brandon Marris with a single in the bottom of the third inning, but then the Fuego scored a run in every remaining inning.

Fuego shortstop Omar Artsen finished 4-for-5 at the plate with two RBIs while left fielder David Brandt hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth for his first homer of the season. Marris (4-3) got the win after pitching a complete game with three hits and four strikeouts.
