MCHS boys baseball falls in Montrose

Bulldogs lose, 11-7, to Emery High School

— For the Moffat County High School boys varsity baseball team, waking up to two inches of snow in Montrose proved to be a bad omen.

The field was sloppy, and so was the play.

Moffat County fell, 11-7, Friday to Emery (Utah) High School in the opening round of the Lloyd McMillan Base­ball Tournament in Mon­trose.

MCHS committed five errors on its way to seven unearned runs.

Coach Justin Folley said starter Ben Williams threw a good game but that errors doomed the 'Dogs.

"He gave up eight hits and four earned runs," he said. "He threw a heck of a game."

But windy and sloppy conditions led to mistakes, Folley said.

The first game was delayed and moved to the field in Delta because the conditions in Montrose were too wet.

For the third straight game, the Bulldogs were potent at the plate.

The team racked up five walks and six earned runs.

Austin Sadvar, playing in his first game of the season, went 2-3 with four RBI.

"Austin came through for us," Folley said.

Williams went 1-3 with a double and a pair of RBIs.

The team will play at 10:45 a.m. today in Olathe against the loser of Friday's Berthoud-Montrose game.

The Bulldogs will play again later today for fifth or seventh place, depending on the result of the first game.
