Down to their final stretches of a two-month long season, both the Helper and Price American Legion Baseball teams are looking to post strong finishes this week.

For Helper, a 13-1 defeat of Highland last Wednesday and a forfeit victory on Friday over Murray is helping set them up for an exciting finish to their 2012 season.

Helper head coach Jeff Cisneros said the team played a complete game against Highland as the lineup pounded out 16 hits with every player contributing to the offensive attack.

After the win on July 11, Helper then took a forfeit victory over Highland followed by a rainout against Granger on Monday. Cisneros said the team will be looking to try and make the game up sometime this week, if possible.

Helper is currently tied in second place with West and are now trailing first place Tooele. Helper will travel to take on West on Friday evening.

Cisneros also noted that three Helper players will be participating in the American Legion All-Star Game on Saturday in Murray. Jaren McCourt, Seth Tryon and Jake Nichols were chosen to represent Helper.

While Helper is getting prepared for the playoffs in Kearns starting July 28 through Aug. 3, Price is looking for a high note to finish off their 2012 season.

After falling 18-1 to Highland last Friday in a game delayed due to heavy rain and lightning, the Price team traveled to Rangely, Colo., for a wooden bat tournament with teams from both Colorado and Utah participating.

Price head coach Willie Ellington said the team had a tough run at the tournament going 0-4. Errors, bad bounces and just some general bad luck engulfed the team over the course of the weekend long tournament.

They then had to travel to Hillcrest on Monday evening for another league game which saw Price fall to Hillcrest 13-2.

Ellington said the team was playing without some of its older players in the game, but credited a group of younger players for stepping up and playing hard.

Price will have a few more chances to get their first victory of the season as they will play Moab on Monday at the USU Eastern baseball field at 5 p.m.
