Team puts season long losing streak behind them with an 8-2 win over Moab

In the end, good things can happen to those who wait.

For the Price American Legion Baseball team, the wait had gone on for long enough.

After enduring tough losses all season long, the Price team finally had everything go their way on the diamond as they came away with an 8-2 win over Moab on Friday afternoon.

Despite playing Moab in two other games this week, including a 7-0 loss in the second game of a double header on Friday and 20-6 loss on July 23, the win was sweet vindication to a team that took a number of tough losses this season.

"It was a great way for the kids to finish the season off," said head coach Willie Ellington.

The team was able to put together a successful game at the plate scoring seven runs which helped give starting pitcher John Grasso plenty of room to work with as he pitched a complete game for the win.

Ellington said the team dealt with plenty of adversity over the season. Through all of the losses the team continued to play the games with respect and dignity, he said.

"They were really excited about getting that first win," Ellington said. "As a coach it was great to see them put everything together. The kids never gave up and it made the long wait for a win worth it."
