Preston played its last baseball game of the year on Saturday and dropped a loser-out game to Pocatello 8-3.
The Indians played in the district tournament in Pocatello. The game started off well for Preston with Jason Wade on the mound. In the third inning Preston led 3-2 but couldn’t hold off Pocatello, who went on to win 8-3.
“We started out stronger than we ever have before against them,” said Coach Brandon Ormond. “We led 3-2 in the third inning, but a few late errors in the fifth gave Poky the edge.”
Dallin Fryar and Bo Spackman each had an RBI for Preston.
On Friday, May 3, the Indians traveled to Century where they picked up a weather-suspended game from March 22.
“That soon turned into an 8-3 loss due to our lack of momentum,” said Ormond. “Immediately following that game Preston played its last regular season game, also against Century. We came up short in spite of a good pitching performance by Damon Yardley,” said Ormond.
On Thursday, May 2, Preston traveled to Bear River.
