Sun Advocate sports reporter

In their third season as an unaffiliated American Legion team, Price has been putting together their most succesful record yet. They beat Green River, Wyo., in both ends of a double header last Wednesday afternoon. Price took the first game 17-7 and then wrapped it up with a 10-4 victory.

They headed to Green River, Wyo., for a weekend tournament and took two of four games there as well. They opened with a 10-6 loss to Lowell, Wyo., and they beat Rock Springs 11-7. Jackson handed Price a 12-5 loss before the team bounced back with a 7-4 victory over Green River.

In the home stand against Green River, Tyson Damron took the mound and got the win in the opener. Joe McKinnon pitched in the second game and also got the win.

Up in Green River, Nico Velasquez got the loss off the mound against Lowell in the first game. Against Rock Springs, Tyson Damron went the distance for the win and Velasquez hit a grand slam home run to guide Price to the win. Jackson Hole was the better team as Price struggled to get runs. Jonathan Garcia was pegged with the loss for Price in that game.

As they wrapped things up, the team found themselves a little flat as they took on Green River in their final game. Anthony Montoya was on the hill and his team was trailing 3-2 in the fourth when Garcia drove a solo shot over the fence to tie it up. That woke the team up and they went on to beat Green River for the third time in a week.

"We played pretty good up there." remarked Coach Willie Ellington, "We had a very good batting line-up and the team was hitting the ball well. We did not leave runners on base much and found ways to keep driving them in."

The team will be playing Thursday night at the Helper Legion tournament.
