Price offense averages 11 runs per game on way to wooden bat title in Colorado

Price has seen their fair share of games where they come so close only for an offensive opportunity to go wasted or an error on defense that gives the game away.

But in Rangely, Colorado, Price played four complete games on their way to a wooden bat championship at the Rangely Invitational last weekend.

Price swept their way to a 4-0 record averaging over 11 runs per game to take home the championship trophy. The tournament win is their second this season with the first one coming from the Green River, Wyoming Invitational earlier this season.

"The bats were outstanding over the weekend," said Price Head Coach Willie Ellington. "I think the team has a lot of fun playing these kinds of games using the wooden bats."

Price opened the tournament on Friday with a 15-0 win over Cole Ridge, using a 10-run second inning to blow the game open.

They continued that into the following day beating host Rangely, Colorado 13-0 and defeating Uintah 16U 14-6 later that day.

Price battled Vernal 18U in a nine inning game for the championship which they came away with a 5-4 win. Price took a 4-1 lead before Vernal answered with three runs to tie the game in the sixth inning.

Despite an hour long rain delay, Price strung together a rally in the last inning to get the championship.

"The guys kept their composure out there and came away with the big win," said Ellington.

Ellington said he is hopeful that the momentum from the tournament win will carry through the rest of the season.

"We'll just try to enjoy the rest of the season and finish up as strong in league play as we can."
