.. c ...................... 10 I The Lovell Chronicle I July 12, 2012 CHRONICLE BY DAVID .PECK Concluding a rugged stretch that saw them play 18 games in about three weeks, the Lovell Mustangs won one of three games at the Douglas wood bat tournament over the weekend. The Mustangs opened play against the Torrington Tigers Friday and fell 11-3 on a tourna- ment eight-run rule. The game was tied 2-2 after three innings as Lovell start- ing pitcher Steven Pickett held the Tiger bats at bay, and Tor- rington led only 3-2 with two outs in the fourth until a double cleared the bases. A pair of er- rors hurt the Mustangs during the four-run Torrington fourth, coach Ray Peterson said. Tor- rington plated five more runs in the fifth and at that point the game was called. Lovell scored a run in the first on an RBI single by McK- ayan May, another in the third on a run-scoring double by Dan- iel Call and a third run in the fourth on a Demitrie Montuy single. "Errors hurt us Friday, and a lack of consistency at the plate," Peterson said. WIN OVER RIVERTON Playing again Saturday morning, Lovell edged the River- ton Raiders 14-12 in a wild and wooly game that saw the Mus- tangs claw from behind. Lovell scored first with a pair in the top of the first on a two- run single by Call and added an- other in the second on an RBI double by Dillon Pickett, but Ri- verton got to Dillon (the starting pitcher) for three in the first in- ning, five in the second and one more in the third to lead 9-3. The Mustangs got back into the game with three runs in the top of the fourth as Dil- lon Pickett, Kyle Peterson and May rapped consecutive singles and came around to score. Dillon Pickett shut the Raiders down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the frame, and the Mustangs plated six in the top of the fifth to lead 12-9. CJ Murphey got the rally started with a single, and after Montuy walked, Steven Pickett doubled home Murphey and Dil- lon Pickett doubled to score Mon- " .............................................................. tuy and brother Steven. Kyle Pe- terson singled to score Dillon, and May tripled home Peterson, then scored the 12th run later in the inning. Riverton rallied for three in the bottom of the fifth to knot the score 12-12, but Lovell scored two in the top of the sixth to lead again, then blanked the Raiders in the bottom of the inning. Montuy ended up scoring the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth when he was hit by a pitch with one out. Steven Pickett sin- gled, and with two outs, Peter- son walked to load the bases. May then doubled home Montuy and Pickett to put the Mustangs on top. Dillon Pickett went the dis- tance on the mound for the Mus- tangs to pick up the win. "Our bats came alive and brought people around the bas- es," Peterson said. "That was good to see. Even the bottom of the order was doing their job. "We just kind of showed more maturity than we have all i~;iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii,iiilE~i~i~:iiiiiiiiii!::i!ii~ ...... ,ii~il .................

The Mustangs are competing in the Billings Halos tournament this weekend. season long, picking each other up." After the Friday and Satur- day pool games, the Mustangs met Rawlins in the fifth-place game earlySunday morning, falling to the Generals 8-2. Mustang errors helped the Generals plate four runs in the top of the first inning, and they added another run in the sec- ond, two in the fourth and one in the sixth. Call started on the mound for the Mustangs and was relieved by May in the sec- ond. Brandon Dickson finished up later in the game. Lovell scored a run in the first when Peterson singled and scored on a May single and an- other in the fifth when Montuy walked and scored on a Peterson sacrifice fly. "We got there early and I thought we were ready to go," Coach Peterson said. "We had beaten them in Green River. But their pitcher (Adam McFarland) had a really good breaking ball to go with his fastball. He was a good ballplayer. "We seemed to make errors at the worst times, when we should have been out of an in- ning." In an earlier conference dou- bleheader last Tuesday, July 3, Lovell fell to Powell 24-5 and 10-0 at the ballpark in Cowley. HOME GAME TUESDAY Now 6-24, the Mustangs will play in the Billings Halos tour- nament this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Billings, then will host the Sheridan Jets next Tuesday, July 17, at i and 3 p.m. Peterson said the Mustangs will play, the Billings Angels Thursday at 10:30 a.m. and the Cody Cubs at i p.m. and then on Friday will take on the Billings Halos at 10:30 and Livingston, Mont., at 1 p.m. before bracket play Saturday during this week- end's tournament.

Game two saw mound duties by Zane Horrocks, Lane Herman, Tyler Nichols, Aden Mayes and Ezra Harlow. North Big Horn led Powell A 5-0 early and were in the game trailing 7-5 after two before Powell exploded in the third.

Little League stars win three of four in Cody BY DAVID PECK The North Big Horn ll-12-year-old Little League all-star baseball team battled to a 3-1 record at the Twin Cities Tournament in Cody Friday and Saturday, placing second. Coach John Schneider said the NBH squad crushed Sheri- dan 21-1 and the Cody B team 13-4 on Friday, then edged Ri- verton 4-2 Saturday morning to reach the championship game, falling to the Cody Stampede 8-2 in the title game. The Sheridan game was tied 0-0 after three innings Friday, but the North Big Horn stars plated six runs in the top of the fourth and 15 in the sixth, blasting four home runs in the process: a grand slam by Brent Snyder, two two-run homers by Wyatt Horrocks and a three-run. shot by Garrett Vezain. Jeremy Schneider got the start on the mound for NBH, and Lathan May pitched in re- lief. North Big Horn jumped on top early in game two Friday, scoring seven runs in the bot- tom of the first inning to lead Cody 7-0, then added two runs each in the second, third and fourth to win 13-4. Horrocks started for NBH, and Ethan Price pitched in re- lief. Tristan Jewell went 3-3 at the plate, Price was 2-2 and Jer- emy Schneider and Horrocks hit home runs, Schneider a three- run shot. Early Saturday morn- ing, Lovell and Riverton locked horns in a pitchers' dual. Brent Snyder pitched six strong in- nings for North Big Horn to get the win, and the game was tied 1-1 going into the bottom of the fifth when NBH plated three runs to lead 4-1. Schneider rapped a single during the rally, followed by a Horrocks triple. Riverton scored one run in the sixth before Snyder slammed the door. The Cody A team - the Stampede - Won the champion- ship game Saturday afternoon, 8-2. Cody built a 6-0 lead after four innings before North Big Horn scored two in the fifth to make it interesting. Lovell had only two hits in the game, Coach Schneider said. Jeremy Schnei- der and Horrocks shared pitch- ing duties for the NBH stars. "These kids can hit the ball," Coach Schneider said of the Cody squad. "The only way we can beat them is to play mistake-free ball. They've been playing since January." The all-stars are partici- pating in the district tourna- ment this week, playing Powell Wednesday and Cody tonight (Thursday) in Cody at 6 p.m. in pool play.
