Despite tough losses, Price not looking to throw in towel
Down late in the game and with a mercy-rule hanging over their heads, Price answered with a rally that scored one run.
While it may seem little, it's one of the things Price Head Coach Willie Ellington wants his team to take away from their 10-1 loss to Helper on Monday evening.
"They stayed confident out there at the end and got a little rally going," said Ellington.
Helper took control of the game early jumping out to a 7-0 lead after two innings and never looked back. Helper pitcher Dillon Wilstead held the Price offense to four hits in the game.
Despite all that, Price kept battling.
That's exactly what Ellington wants to see.
"I keep telling them not to give up when things are down," he said. "Just go out there and give it 100 percent and keep coming back."
Ellington said the team has been hurt by coming out flat in games and falling behind by a few runs that requires them to chip away for the rest of the game.
Price player Steven Zamantakis said the team has dealt with struggles but knows they can break out from it.
"We've had our ups and downs this season, but we need to just work harder and play together as a team," said Zamantakis.
Price will travel to Rangely, Colorado for a wooden bat tournament Friday through Sunday looking to turn things around.
