Miners’ baseball crushes ALA

The Park City High School baseball team beat ALA 21-1 and 20-3 in its final two games of the regular season on Thursday, taking out some aggression gained from two losses in a doubleheader at Carbon last weekend.

David Snyder scored four times and Les Ashwood went 3-for-5 to lead Park City in the opener, with Nate Stanley relieving David Feasler after just an inning to pick up the four-inning win.

Connor Howard hit a home run in the second game as 10 Miners scored, seven of them more than once. Howard also got a rare start on the mound, pitching two perfect innings with four strikeouts, while Jackson Smith came in for three innings of relief and allowed one run for the win.

The team will begin its bid for a state championship on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. by facing the No. 3 seed in the Southern Region, before a game against host Juan Diego at 3 p.m. Head coach Terry Phillips said he likes his chances in the double elimination tournament.

"It just depends who shows up," Phillips said, adding that the doubleheader format could be plus for PCHS. "These kids are better when they play more often. We were on a roll when we were playing all the time and travelling."

Dakota Matherly will likely start the first game, with Feasler going against Juan Diego.
