Price Legion Baseball on five-game winning streak including title in Wyoming tournament

Playing your rival in the opening game of the season is not what many teams want on their schedule especially when the rival is the defending state champion in American Legion Baseball.

But that opening season 11-3 loss to Helper may not have been the worst thing to happen for Price.

It may have been just what the Price Legion team needed.

Since that loss to Helper last Monday evening at home, Price has won six straight games with all of them coming on the road.

Price added a 10-0 win over Judge on Wednesday evening to go 1-1 in the Salt Lake Valley standings.

The Price team traveled to Green River, Wyo., to participate in the Green River Invitational.

They opened tournament play with a 6-1 win over Douglas, Wyo., on Friday evening. Leading 2-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth, Price scored four runs to put the game out of reach as Steven Zamantakis pitched a complete game while allowing one run.

Price then defeated Riverton, Wyo., 3-2 as Brendan Johnson threw a complete game to get the win.

Price followed with another win, this time in a 4-2 victory over Rangely, Colo. Caden Sherman pitched a complete game for Price as the offense jumped on the board quickly and kept the Rangely offense in check to get the win.

Against Evanston, Wyo., Price fell behind 3-0 before answering with one run in the third and two more in the fourth to take the lead. Anthony MacLean threw a complete game with eight strikeouts.

In the championship against Steamboat Springs, Colo., Price again fell behind 3-0. But as they did before, they battled back scoring one run in the third inning before plating five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 6-3 on the way to the championship win.

Price Head Coach Willie Ellington said the pitching staff played a big role in going undefeated at the tournament. But he also noted the Price offense playing well despite having to use wooden bats.

"It was just old fashioned baseball," Ellington said noting the down-to-the-wire games. "Every game was exciting and really fun to play in as a team."

Price will return home on Wednesday when they host Cyprus at the CHS Baseball Field at 6 p.m.
