RIFLE – Eagle Valley took two from Rifle’s baseball team on Saturday, rallying for an 11-10, extra-inning win in the day’s opener and recording a 9-7 victory in the nightcap.

Rifle led the opener, 6-3, going into the top of the seventh inning, but the Devils put four on the board to go ahead. The Bears responded with a run in the bottom of the seventh to force extras.

Eagle scored four in the top of the 10th, a rally that Rifle responded to with a three-run homer by Michael Cash in the bottom of the frame. The Bears then put runners on the corners with one out, but a baserunning blunder prevented Rifle from fully bridging the gap.

Cash had a big game at the plate, going 4-for-6 with a double, homer and three RBIs. He also pitched 5 1/3 innings, striking out 12.

A five-run fourth inning propelled the Devils in the back end of the twin bill.

Cody Chick led the Bears (1-4), going 2-for-3 with a single and a double. Hunter Finger contributed a double and two RBIs.

PARACHUTE – In a game shifted from Vail Mountain to Parachute due to inclement weather in the mountains, Vail Mountain scored a 3-0 win over Grand Valley on Saturday.

The Gore Rangers scored all three of their goals in the second half.
