Roaring Fork drops two to Cedaredge

The Roaring Fork baseball team dropped its final two regular-season games Saturday and will start the Class 3A Western Slope League District Tournament on the road Tuesday.

Cedaredge held Roaring Fork to four hits in the first game, shutting out the Rams 6-0, then held on 12-10 for the doubleheader sweep in Cedaredge.

Roaring Fork drops to 4-8 in league (9-9 overall) and will be the sixth seed in the district tournament. Cedaredge improves to 6-6 (9-10).

Cedaredge sealed the first game with a five-run third inning, and the Rams offense never got on track. Skyler McAllister, Jake Kinney, Parker Nieslanik and Tyler Hunt each had a hit, but Roaring Fork wasn’t able to plate a run.

The Rams got out to a 4-0 lead in the second game, only to see Cedaredge answer with seven runs in the second and extend its lead with a five-run fourth.

Trailing 12-6 headed into the sixth inning, Roaring Fork made a run with two runs in each of the last two innings, but couldn’t complete the rally.

Rangely notched a pair of victories over Grand Valley Saturday in Parachute, downing the Cardinals 11-3 and 14-5 in the final regular-season games for both teams.

Grand Valley finishes the season 2-6 in league play and 6-8 overall, while Rangely improves to 7-1 (12-5).
