Green River baseball wins consolation trophy

Sports Writer

The Green River Pirate baseball team is eight games into the 2013 fall baseball season and Coach Rob Maughan has his team playing a tough schedule to prepare his players for the region season and the ensuing play-offs.

Green River has a 3-5 record through last Friday's game at Richfield against Valley. Green River won the consolation trophy at the Valley tournament earlier, the first time the Pirates have returned with a trophy in baseball in quite a while.

Green River started the season with a loss to Panguitch by the score of 7-0 followed by another loss to Panguitch at the Valley tournament, this time by the score of 10-8. The Pirates then defeated Intermountain Christian 23-0 and Manila 12-6. The Pirates then lost to Wayne 15-1, Piute 12-5 and Valley 10-8. They did defeat St Joseph 11-4 during that final run.

In their last game against Valley, Green River scored four runs in the final inning and had two runners in scoring position when the batter hit a screamer to the gap only to see the Valley outfielder run it down for the final out of the game.

Spencer Marshall leads the team with 2 homeruns and a double while Chance Pfander has two doubles and a homerun in this young season.

The Pirates will play three games next weekend at Panguitch.
