Young Mustangs look solid but drop four of five BY DAVID PECK The Lovell Mus- tangs can't quite get over the hump. Although they played well at times dur- ing games in Riverton and Douglas over the weekend, they came away with just one win in five games, leav- ing the young team 6-19 on the season. Thursday, the Mustangs traveled to Riverton to make :hp; 0neof w6 games-post-, poned on July 1: One bad inning spelled doom for the Mustangs, who fell to the Raiders 5-1. Lovell pitcher Hunter Hinckley had a rough start, walking the first batter and hitting three of the next four, followed by another walk, as Riverton plated five runs in the bottom of the first in- ning. But Hinckley settled down after that and blanked the home team over the next five innings. "He relaxed," coach Bill Pickett said. "After that he had short innings. They nev- er did hit him very well." Meanwhile, the Mus- tangs got runners on base but failed to get them home, Pickett said, leaving two on base in the first, two more in the third and one each in the fourth and fifth. "The whole weekend was 'left on base' (as the theme)," Pickett said. "We were hitting the ball right at people." Lovell only scored one run Thursday when McK- ayan May singled and scored on a double by Kyle Peter- son in the fourth inning. DOUGLAS TOURNAMENT The Mustangs trav- eled to Douglas Friday for the three-day Bolin Memo- rial Wood Bat Tournament. They faced Riverton Fri- day night in a tournament game that was also declared a Northwest Conference game to complete the July 1 makeup date. As in the previous game, the Mustangs got runners on base but stranded nine as Riverton won 8-4. Riv- erton built a 5-0 lead after three innings. Lovell rallied : f0i; lee ih:the;fmirth: as Peterson doubled home one and Brandon Dickson plat- ed two. Riverton put the game away with three in the bot- tom of the fifth, and Lovell added a late run in the seventh as Steven Pickett walked and scored on a dou- ble by Dylan Hultgren. Dillon Pickett, a 15-year- old, pitched the distance for the Mustangs and per- formed well, his father said. "He made some Babe Ruth mistakes, but he did a great job," the coach said. WIN OVER DOUGLAS Saturday morning the Mustangs picked up their only win of the weekend as they topped the host Doug- las Cats 6-5. Hultgren went the distance on the mound for the win, shutting the Cats out in three of six in- nings. The game was tied 1-1 after three innings, but Lovell scored three runs in the top of the fourth to take a 4-1 lead. Douglas matched the Mustangs with three in the bottom of the frame. Na- than Ballard singled and scored in the fifth for Lovell, but the Cats matched the run in the bottom of the in- ning - 5-5. Dillon Pickett doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly in the sixth and Hultgren shut out the Cats in the bot- tom of the inning for the 6-5 Lovell win, striking out the last batter with two runners on base. Completing round-rob- in play, the Mustangs faced the Torrington Tigers in the next game and fell 12-9 in a rather unusual contest. Pickett said four first- ', inning: Torrington runs could be attributei to the bright Wyoming sky as lazy fly balls got lost in the sun, much to the chagrin of Lovell starting pitcher Ste- ven Pickett. "Steve pitched great," Coach Pickett said. "There were probably four of those in the first." Torrington led 5-1 after 3 innings, but Lovell plat- ed four in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game 5-5. The Mustangs could have taken the lead, Pickett said, but on a bases-loaded dou- ble, Dino Collins and Tony Rodriguez scored but Ste- ven Pickett was called out at the plate and ejected for not sliding and for making contact with the Torrington catcher. Coach Pickett said his son saw Rodriguez cross the plate in front of him standing up and thought he could do the same, but then the ball arrived too late for him to slide. The ejection not only stopped the Lovell rally, it put the starting pitcher on the base and Torrington scored seven runs in the top of the fifth against 15-year- old Dickson. Lovell rallied for four in the bottom of the fifth but couldn't make up the deficit. FINAL GAME After numerous tie- breakers were applied to seed Douglas, Riverton and Lovell - each 1-2 in pool play -- a coin flip seeded Lovell third, which set up a re-match with Douglas Sunday. Some poor base running plagued the Mus- tangs, and they left seven on base in an 11-3 loss to the Cats. Ballard took the loss for the Mustangs, and Hincll iiched an'inning of reIief, i i i, "We ntiIe a lot of young mistakes, although we hit the ball pretty well," Pick- ett said. HALOS TOURNAMENT As the regular season winds down, the Mustangs are in Billings this week for the Billings Halos Tour- nament. The Mustangs opened play Wednesday with a 3 p.m. game against the Halos followed by a 5 p.m. game against the Bill- ings Cardinals. Thursday, the Mus- tangs play the Cody Cubs in a Northwest Conference game at 12:30 in Billings, and on Friday the Mus- tangs will take on the Liv- ingston Braves at 10 a.m. Teams will play for first, third and fifth place on Saturday. The Mustangs are still trying to make up a May 24 double-header at Powell that was rained out, and Pickett said they may do so Sunday in Powell, followed by the final home games of the season Monday against the Sheridan Jets in Cow- ley, scheduled for 1 and 3 p.m. The North District Tournament is July 21-23 in Gillette. The state tour- nament is July 27-30 in Cheyenne. Friday game at 12:30 Babe Ruth stars open district play in Cody BY DAVID PECK The regular season is over and the North Big Horn Babe Ruth All-Stars are competing at the Dis- trict IV Tournament in Cody this week. League General Man- ager Ray Peterson said the North Big Horn Program had hoped to field both a 13-year- old squad and a 14-15-year- old team for tournaments in Powell and Cody, respec- tively, but with only seven 13-year-olds available, the program is consolidating into a 13-15-year-old squad. A once-expected seven- team district bracket has been pared to four, with Riverton, Thermopolis and Worland unable to field all- star teams, Peterson said, so the tournament will be played in two days. Friday's games include Powell vs. Greybull at 10 a.m., followed by North Big Horn vs. Cody at 12:30. The two losers play for survival at 4 p.m., and the two win- ners play in the semifinals at 6:30 p.m. Saturday's schedule in- cludes a loser-out game at 10 a.m. and the champi- onship game at 1 p.m., fol- lowed by a second title game if the undefeated team in the 1 p.m. game loses. SATURDAY GAMES In the final regular sea- son games Saturday after- noon in Cowley, the A's and Rockies hosted Worland, splitting the doubleheader. Worland edged the A's 6-5 in game one Saturday. Trailing 6-1 after 2 in- nings, the A's rallied for four runs in the bottom of the third but fell just short. Ca- leb Horrocks started on the mound for the A's and Dil- lon Harvey mopped up. In game two, the Rock- ies edged Worland 6-5. Trailing 5-1 after 2 in- nings, the Rocks plated four runs in the third, then won it in the bottom of the fourth. Geiser, Jameson and Mangus win Wagner Tournament The trio of Grant Gei- ser, Scotty Jameson and Brandon Mangus was hot on the links Saturday to win the annual Jim Wag- ner Memorial Golf Tourna- ment at the Foster Gulch Golf Course. Placing second in the 18- hole scramble was the team of Scott Watson, Levi Miller and John Wilson, while the trio of Ron Schmidt, Mike Kitchen and Rick Eades placed third. The threesome of Brock Frates, Lane Den- zin and Tony Frost placed fourth, followed by the team of Josh Tippetts, Pat Win- land and Dan Wolvington in fifth. Winning flag prizes were Dave Frost, Geiser, Winland, Kitchen, Dean Wolvington, Doug Harri- son, Luke Harrison, Man- gus, Wilson, James Chris- tiansen, Randy Putman, Peggy Denzin, Lane Den- zin, Frates, Casey Traut- man, Miller, Tony Frost and Lynette Frost.
