TROOPERS SPLIT TWO WITH CASPER

The Troopers took the first game 5-4 coming from behind in the last two innings to steal a victory and end a seven game losing streak.

The Troops fell behind 1-0 and were hitless through four inning before breaking through to tie the game in the 5th inning and score four more in the 6th to take a 5-1 lead in the final inning.

The Oilers tried to come back with four consecutive hits to start the 7th inning they scored three runs but the Troops were able to close it out and hang on for the one run win.

After dropping seven in a row Head coach Ben Phillips says it was nice to get one last night no matter how it happened.

The Troops had only three hits and score their four run in the 6th inning without getting a hit and actually put the ball in play only one time.

Starting pitcher Lucas Giesey worked of jams in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th innings before finally closing out the game.

The key play of the game came with no outs in the 7th inning Casper had the game tying run at 3rd base they tried a squeeze play but the runner broke for the plate too soon which allowed Geisey to step off the mound and get the runner in a run down.

The Troops recorded the out and that sealed the win, Phillips says it's a little play they work on all the time and the players executed it perfect and it got them the win.

Casper came back to win game two 11-10.
