Miners baseball team stays alive in playoffs

The first time the Park City High School baseball team faced Jayden Murray, a Uintah pitcher, it was held to just one run while striking out nine times on April 7.

On Thursday afternoon, the Miners squared off against Murray and the Utes again, this time in the 3A playoffs. With both teams facing elimination, the Miners jumped on Murray early, scoring five runs in the second inning and cruising to an 11-2 victory over their Region 10 rivals.

Ryan Brady picked up the win for Park City, allowing only one run each in the fourth and fifth innings. Several Miners had big days at the plate, including Chandler Anderson, who hit a three-run home run. Chandler Barkdull added a triple and Ian Moritz, Scott Stokes and Tanner Whittington each had doubles.

picking up the win in the first game Thursday, the Miners advanced to play Juab in a late game.

After a scoreless first inning against the Wasps, the floodgates opened for the Miners, who scored 12 runs in the second. Park City added another run in the third, which proved to be more than enough to rout Juab 13-2 in five innings.

Park City advanced to play Bear River at 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon at Dixie State University, after this issue went to press. If the Miners won that game, they were scheduled to meet up with either Snow Canyon or Carbon in the late game on Friday. Park City defeated Snow Canyon 13-9 in the first round of this year’s playoffs and lost to Carbon 5-4 in the second round.
