“We didn’t come out playing as well as we should’ve to start the game. We dug ourselves a tree, nothing hole, and the Rangers started to apply some pressure to us. We were never able to get back over the top. Finally, when we took the lead, we gave it right back, and we didn’t have it today. We played most of today’s game as an uphill battle.”

After the close loss to the Rangers, Coach Ty lane feels very optimistic about where his team is going. “We’ve got a decent tournament coming up next week, with the Cabo tournament in Cheyenne. We’ve had back to back good tournaments that we’ve played in, and we’re trying to test our club and extend our club and keep growing every facet of our team and keep trying to get better.”

Julian Romero got the start, and he lasted one inning, allowing three hits and three runs. Ben Bohlman took the loss for the Sixers 18U. Coming in as the reliever, he went three and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs on four hits, fanning five and walking one. Head Coach Ty Lane, says he is very impressed by his reliever.

“He threw well today, his stuff is getting better and better, his command is getting better also. I thought he did a good job of keeping us in the game, giving us a chance there at the end, and that’s all you can ask of your guy so really proud of him today.”

Cheyenne Sixers 18U totaled seven hits in the game with contributions from Nico Vite, Colter McAnelly, and Andrew Johnson. The three batters collected two hits apiece.

Next week, Cheyenne Sixers will play host to the Cabo Tournament from Powers Field.
