Then things went off the rails, as Riverton scored 16 runs in the fourth on eight hits, and multiple walks and errors.
“Getting at least a split in the Riverton games was important for us,” White said. “I thought we played well for six innings of the first game. We came out early and scored runs, and pitched well enough to stay in the game. We had one bad inning which we were unable to overcome, and it eventually cost us the game.”
Cody’s final run came in the fifth.
