Bubba Ivers, a Moffat County High School junior, struggled in his first game on the mound, walking seven batters in a 15-3 loss to Emery in the opening game of the Montrose Tournament on Friday. Justin Folley, the MCHS varsity baseball head coach, said with such a young team early season woes are expected, but the Bulldogs are making strides in the right direction.

Justin Folley said he knew having a young baseball team would present challenges early in the season. On Friday, the Moffat County High School varsity baseball team stepped on the field for the first time this season in the Montrose Tournament at Montrose High School. The Bulldogs got overwhelmed early against Emery (Utah) High School in the opening game, falling behind 4-0 after two innings, and struggled to slow the Spartans offense in a 15-3 loss. “I knew we would struggle being as young as we are, but I thought we did alright for it being our first game,” said Folley, the team’s head coach. “A lot of the young guys stepped up and did some good things, so all in all, I think it was a learning experience and we will have to go from here.”
