The Pinnacle Panthers baseball team welcomed Tintic to its home field Friday afternoon. The two teams played in double-header action, which resulted in two losses for Pinnacle, 10-5 and 7-5.
Pinnacle then traveled North to play Intermountain Christian School on Monday. Despite losing their first game to ICS, 3-1, the Panthers bounced back to easily win the second game 23-3.
According to coach Cameron Gardner, the Panthers have had a difficult time staying focused during double-headers. “It’s almost like we have two teams,” coach Gardner explained. “They will play really well in one game and not so well in the other.”
The Panthers struggled against Tintic by committing numerous errors, which led to runs and several strikes were thrown during that game. “We hurt ourselves in this game,” Gardner stated. “But I did see a lot of good things as well.”
With only two seniors and a graduating junior on the squad, Pinnacle is a very young team. “Most of our players will return next year,” Gardner indicated. “I am excited about our future.”
The Panthers will host their final home game of the season on Friday beginning at 2 p.m. against Tabiona in double-header action.
