The season ended in disappointing fashion for the Crook County Cowboys with an 11-1 pounding by the Summit Storm in Friday afternoon Intermountain Hybrid Conference baseball action.
“I don’t have much to say about Friday,” said Crook County head coach Frank Martinez. “They out hit us that’s for sure.”
The Storm pounded 13 hits in the contest while Summit pitching limited the Cowboys to just two hits.
Four Storm batters went 2-3 from the plate in the contest as Summit pulled away late for the easy win.
The game followed a pattern that has become all too familiar for the Cowboys late in the season. Crook County will play a close game for most of a contest, only to give up one or more big innings late in the game.
Friday was no exception as the Cowboys trailed just 4-1 going into the fifth inning. However, the Storm scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth, and three more in the sixth inning as they took control of the contest.
Crook County’s lone extra base hit was a triple by Stetson Hall who finished 1-2 for the game.
The Storm finishes the regular season with a 15-11 record, while the Cowboys season ends with a disappointing 8-18 record.
