Bears off to torrid region start
Leader Sports Writer
After a couple of games on the road the Bears are glad to be playing baseball at home this week. Bear River was able to get off to a hot start in region play and currently has a 3-0 record. Scoring margins weren’t too close, but not one of last week’s three games was a gimme.
The Bears played defending state champ Juan Diego yesterday (check our Website for more info: www.tremontonleader.com).
Senior shortstop Dyson Morgan said, “Juan Diego should be the toughest team that we play [in region action].”
Thursday Bear River will play at home against Grantsville at 3:30. The Bears won’t play again until next Tuesday when they travel to Ben Lomond, hoping to keep pace with their stellar start.
Last Wednesday Bear River played a high scoring game against Judge Memorial at Bear Field. The Bears scored seven runs in two separate innings against the Bulldogs, although they only led 8-5 halfway through the fifth. Dixon Marble got the win on the mound and struck out five. Dallas Stokes had very timely at bats and was able to drive in four runs. Stokes hit a triple and a double in the game.
