Preston hosted a double header against Blackfoot on Saturday, April 6 and were able to get both district games in before the weather got too bad.
A moment of silence was held before the opening game for former Indian Kris Cole, who passed away March 25. He graduated from Preston in 2009.
Sadly, for the Indians, both games ended with a loss.
“We had another strong pitching performance by Jason Wade in the opener,” said Coach Brandon Ormond. “But we lacked defense and hitting to support him on the mound. Blackfoot swung the bats well and we gave up four runs in the first inning, three of them unearned. We never recovered.”
Wade went a combined three for five at the plate with an RBI. He allowed 10 hits and struck out eight. Only five of the 10 runs he gave up were earned. The game ended after five innings with the score at 10-0.
The second game started off much better with Preston taking a 5-4 lead, but it was not to be. It also ended early due to the 10-run rule.
