Morgan, UT – It started out as a nice spring day on for baseball on Tuesday as the Morgan Trojans took the field against conference opponent Judge Memorial Bulldogs. Things turned chilly on and off the field as the Bulldogs ran away with it beating Morgan 14-1 in six innings. This was the first of a three game series with the Bulldogs.
Things were fairly even for the first two innings and in the third Judge scored the first run of the game. They scored four more runs in the fourth, three in the fifth, and a total of six runs in the sixth. Morgan scored their single run in the fifth inning, with bases loaded Jake Rounkles was walked and all runners advanced scoring Morgan’s only run of the game.
Morgan was in scoring position at several times during the game, but could never quite put it together. Both teams struggled recording several errors, the Bulldogs had their hitting together recording 10 hits and 12 RBI’s to Morgan’s three.
Coach Trent Rounkles was proud of his team in playing the very tough Bulldogs, “[they’re an] incredible group of kids that ask questions and constantly want to learn and get better. It’s all part of our process and trusting it. We’ll get there on all levels.”
Morgan (4-8) will continue their series with Judge (6-4) on Friday at home at 3:30pm then will finish out the series on Saturday at Judge at 3:30pm.
It was not only a tough night for Morgan baseball, softball also took a tough 12-0 loss to Grantsville, and boys Soccer lost a close 2-1 match to Roy.
