All the pieces were in place for Ivan Nielsen to lead the Moffat County High School varsity baseball team to victory Tuesday at Craig Middle School. In the Bulldogs’ home opener against Union High School, neither team had scored in four innings and the game was tied 3-3 in the bottom of the seventh. Nielsen, an MCHS senior, stepped up to the plate to lead off for the Bulldogs. “I wanted to sit and wait until he gave me something I liked,” Nielsen said. “I knew I wanted to get it in a gap and try to get a double so we could get a runner in scoring position.”
