Hyrum (UT) end Dimond’s season at NWCART
Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Aug 11, 2018
The Hyrum (UT) Trappers broke open the game with a big fourth inning en route to 14-3 triumph in a loser-out game that eliminated the Dimond Post 21 Lynx from the Northwest Class A Regional Tournament in Lewiston, Idaho.
Four Dimond pitchers combined to issue 13 walks, including six in the fourth to fuel a seven-run outburst that allowed Utah to seal the deal early.
The Lynx finished 0-2 at the regional, but they have nothing to hang their heads about after bagging a 24-win season.
Luke Smith and Logan Sweet each went 2-for-3 at the plate. Smith knocked in a run and Sweet threw out a baserunner trying to steal second.
Jacob Lick went 1-for-3 with an RBI. Kobe Vanderwood was 1-for-2 with a walk for Dimond.
Connor Cunningham and Jack Dolan scored runs in the third inning. Zach Jenkins singled and later scored in the fourth.
Dimond was trying to become the fourth Alaska team since 2013 to win a game at the NWCART.
