Price Loses to Judge in Five Innings


After a tough loss on the road in Herriman last Monday, the Price American Legion team welcomed Judge Memorial Friday for a Salt Lake Valley League matchup.

Price, though, could muster just two runs in the game while giving up 13 in the five-inning game.

“We were not prepared to play the game,” said Price manager Willie Ellington. “We were flat. It was the worst game all year.”

Isaiah Martinez started on the mound for Price and went three innings. The Pinnacle pitcher gave up seven runs and was credited with the loss. Zac Hathaway pitched the final two innings in relief and gave up the final six runs of the game.

Kellen Trujillo had two hits on the afternoon, a double and a single. Nick Rukavina chipped in two singles and Dillon Lowe finished with a single.

Price scored its only two runs of the game in the third inning on a Caden Sherman sacrifice fly and a RBI single from Lowe.

Price will travel to Highland Monday for a doubleheader. First pitch in game one is slated for 4:30 p.m. The team will then travel to Murray on Wednesday.
