Tonight begins the final week of Northern Utah League baseball. The Blue Sox battle it out with four other teams for the title. The Blue Sox play the Providence Wolverines tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Providence.
“Smithfield jumped on Hyrum starter McKay Hedin early, with lead-off hitter Brennen Reese going yard on the second pitch he saw. Smithfield pitcher Jordan Hansen would hit one out in the next inning — an 0-1 offering crushed to left-center.” — Joey Hislop
“The Blue Sox snapped what is believed to be a 13-game losing streak to the Providence Wolverines with a 6-2 victory on a rainy Wednesday night at Max L. Johnson Memorial Field.”
The Sky View Bobcats baseball team came into Friday’s game with a plan to finish the season on a high note by beating the valley rival Mountain Crest Mustangs, but that was just not meant to be. Unfortunately superb pitching by the Mustangs, and the silent bats and inconsistent defensive play of the Bobcats left them looking to next season as they fell by a score of 8-0 to the Mustangs who finish the season at 18-4 (12-3 Region 5). The Bobcats finish the season at 3-18 overall (3-12 Region 5).
In what was somewhat of a Region 5 pillow-fight, the Logan Grizzlies roughed up and made short work of the Sky View Bobcats winning 12-2 in six innings. The Bobcats (3-16, 3-10 Region 5) continue to struggle this season and fall to fifth place where they will finish regardless of the outcome in their season finale against second place Mountain Crest Mustangs.
SMITHFIELD—Led by the timely hitting of sophomore Adam Snow, Sky View blasted Valley rival Logan Tuesday for three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. The problem for the Bobcats was they gave up eight runs earlier in the game.
LOGAN—Sky View tied Friday’s matchup with Valley rival Logan, after trailing 3-0 midway through the game. That elation was short-lived, however, when Grizzly sophomore Russell Murphy drove in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning with a walk-off shot to deep left field.
