Baseball season has been underway for the past few weeks and things are looking up for the team, despite a few set backs.
First off, we have boy’s baseball. Their first five games they have gone 3-2. They started off the season hot with a 3-game win streak, but had back-to-back losses to Riverton in their last two games.
The first game was a close win over Bountiful with a final score of 1-0. The first two innings were scoreless, until the third inning when Jake Maw got a hit to score the one and only run. Davis pitched a shutout to put their record to 1-0.
The second game was a high scoring win for the Darts against Woods Cross. The final score was 8-3. The first inning started off with a bang with both sides scoring two runs. Davis got the win with a 4-run inning in the 5th.
The third game was a blowout against the Copper Hills Grizzlies, the final score being 7-0. Mike Wendt had 3 hits with 2 RBI’s on only 4 plate appearances. Davis pitched a shutout to bring our record to 3-0.
In our fourth game of the season, the 3-game win streak came to an end with a heartbreaking loss to Riverton. The final score was 10-1. Riverton came out swinging and Davis could not keep up with Riverton’s offense.
In our latest game, we played Riverton again and, while it was closer than before, but we still ended up with the loss. The final score was 5-2. We held Riverton to less runs, but we just couldn’t get the bats going against Riverton’s pitching.
The boy’s baseball season started off hot with a 3-game win streak, but lost two in a row in back-to-back games against Riverton. If we play like we did at the first of the season, we have nothing but good things to look forward to this season.
