Junior Tigers win three at home tourney

TORRINGTON – The Torrington Tiger junior Legion baseball team went 3-0-1 over the weekend at the Tiger Tournament.

The Tigers opened the weekend with a 14-3 run-ruled victory over the Wheatland Lobos on Friday morning.

In the bottom of the first, Torrington was issued four walks, to go along with a single and a hit batter to go up 3-0.

The Tigers got a sacrifice fly from Bryce Hager in the second and a single from Ayden Desmond to push the lead to 6-0 heading to the fourth.

Torrington blew the game open in the fourth with eight more runs, pushing the lead to 14-0.

Wheatland got three back in the top of the fifth, but it wasn’t enough to extend the game.

In Friday’s night cap, the Tigers held on for a 9-6 win over the Laramie Regulators.

Laramie jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first, but a single by Desmond and a double by Bodie Moffat put the Tigers on the scoreboard.

It was the first of six runs Torrington scored in the frame.

Hager, Keyan Sargent and Matthew Hellus also got singles in the inning to cap off the first.

Each team scored a run in the second, but in the top of the fifth, Laramie plated three runs to draw within one at 7-6.

In the home half of the fifth, Brady Cook drove in a run, and a wild pitch by the Regulators pushed the Torrington lead back to three.

The two-hour time limited was reached in the sixth inning.

On Saturday, the Tigers defeated Gillette 6-3, and on Sunday, Torrington closed out the tournament with a 4-4 tie with WESTCO.

WESTCO tied the game in the sixth, but because of the tournament’s hard time limit, the game ended in the tie.

The younger Tiger squad is now 15-3-1 on the season and travels to Scottsbluff, Neb., to face WESTCO at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
