CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Cheyenne Post 6 Sixers hosted Scottsbluff, Nebraska’s Westco Zephyrs for a nine inning game on Tuesday evening at Powers Field.

Westco opened the scoring with an RBI double play groundout in the first inning. However, Post 6 responded to make it 3-1 with a 2-run bottom of the 1st and one-run bottom of the 3rd.

The Zephyrs tallied three runs on a bases clearing double in the 4th inning and retook the lead, 4-3. But Sixers starting pitcher Xander Jarosh buckled down and would not allow any more runs in the contest. His final line was 6.1 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K.

Jarosh would end up getting the win because the Sixers scored 12 runs over the next three innings, tallying four in each frame. Mason Tafoya had a whale of a game, collecting three hits and scoring four runs in the effort.

The Sixers won the ball game 15-4 and evoked a run-rule mercy rule in the 7th inning. Cheyenne moves to (50-9) on the year after the victory.
