Cowboys lose close game to Ravens, blasted by Storm

Crook County falls to Ridgeview in extra innings


The Crook County Cowboy summer baseball program continued their up and down season last week.

The team suffered a heart-breaking loss last Wednesday to the Ridgeview Ravens, then were pounded on Thursday by the Summit Storm.

Against Ridgeview the Cowboys were in the game to the very end. The two teams were tied 7-7 at the end of regulation. Ridgeview was able to manufacture a run in the top of the eighth inning to take an 8-7 lead. Crook County was unable to score in the bottom half of the inning as the Ravens escaped with the win.

“It was a great game,” said Crook County Head Coach Frank Martinez. “We were playing against kids our own age. We have mostly freshmen and sophomores on our summer team and so does Ridgeview.”

Thursday was a different story as the Storm took control early en route to a 17-4 win over the Cowboys.

“They were phenomenal,” CCHS Assistant Coach Cody Norris said of the Storm. “Summit hit everything we threw at them and pounded the ball the other way and into the gaps, but we didn’t make an error. The kids showed heart and didn’t give up.”

The Cowboys are back in action tonight when they host the Madras White Buffalos. Then Wednesday the team goes on the road to take on the state runner up Sisters Outlaws. Both games are scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
