After a year of not playing on its home field due to flooding damage, the Helper American Legion team played its first home game on familiar grounds. The team wasted no time in making the homecoming worthwhile. It only took five quick innings for Helper to send Granger packing with a 10-0 loss.
Dakota Cisneros pitched a complete game shutout and allowed just one hit. Cisneros picked up his second league victory and both games have been one-hit shutouts.
Tyler Procarione had a single, a double and a RBI. Derek Young had two singles and a pair of RBIs. Ridge Nielson also had a big game at the plate going 3-3 with a pair of singles, a double and a two of RBIs. Jaren McCourt ended the game with a double that scored the final run in the bottom of the fifth.
“This was a good win and our first home game in over a year at our park in Helper,” said head coach Jeff Cisneros. “We had a good crowd and it was good to be back home. The win puts us 2-0 in league and 5-1 overall.”
Helper will host Cyprus Wednesday at 7 p.m.
