Baseball team advances in playoffs

The Park City High School baseball team had a busy day Thursday.

In the morning, the team beat Emery 7-6. The Miners started off the game with four runs in the second inning, giving them an early lead over the Spartans. But Emery made a comeback toward the end of the game, scoring six runs by the end of the sixth inning.

The Miners rallied in the seventh and a hit by David Snyder resulted in two runs, tying the score at 6-6. The Miners pulled ahead for the win when Emery’s catcher was charged with a passed ball, allowing a runner to advance and score.

Park City had seven hits to Emery’s 11 and zero errors.

In the afternoon, Park City went up against Morgan and defeated the Trojans 14-10. In somewhat of a repeat performance, the Miners struck early and gained a 6-0 lead. The Trojans fought back but the Miners had renewed determination not to let them get ahead, thanks to their earlier experience.

As of press time Friday, the Miners were preparing to play Salem Hills at Utah Valley University. Following the Park City game, Cedar City and Wasatch High School were scheduled to play at 1:30 p.m. The winner of each game would play in the state quarterfinals Friday night at 7 p.m.
