Cheyenne Sixers 18U beat the defending state champs, Casper, 10-0 in first round of state tournament
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Cheyenne Sixers 18U started out the Wyoming Class AA Legion state tournament in Rock Springs, facing the defending state champs against the Casper Oilers, shutting out Casper, 10-0.
Cheyenne found their groove offensively in the middle innings, scoring with five in the fourth inning. Bradley Feezer won for Post 6, striking out four and allowing zero runs.
“The rocky start was just nerves, and we got that out and we played the baseball that we could at our full potential,” Feezer said. “Were just getting better at this point.”
Sixers outfielder, Andrew Johnson led all batters in hits, recording two doubles during the contest with three quality at bats.
Cheyenne's Nico Vite recorded three RBI's.
"As a team, we were a little jumpy at first, trying to really go out and get the ball, but I think as we went through the lineup a second time and started seeing more pitches, we really settled in and started seeing the ball and started sticking to the approach that we worked so hard on all year," Johnson said.
“I think we’ll keep getting better and better every day that we stay alive in this tournament, and at the back end we’ll be playing our best baseball,” Manager of the Sixers, Ty Lain said.
