Mavericks take 6th in Harry Griffith Tournament

While they didn’t take first place in the Harry Griffith Tournament this weekend, the Mavericks played hard throughout and overcame three teams after a decent deficit.

Friday night the Mavs took on Spearfish in storm-like conditions. The wind was blowing through the game and the rain came and went. There was a short delay due to lightning in the second inning, but that didn’t stop the Mavs’ bats.

The final after just three innings was 16-4, the game ended in the third due to the mercy-rule.

Jacob Swope was 3-3 on the day with three runs and a walk. Jess Bellows, Jared Bellows, Jarrett Gunther, and Mason Dinardi also hit well, adding to the Mavericks total.

Noah Christopherson was on the mound for the Mavs. He ended the game with a strikeout, three walks, four hits and two earned runs.

Saturday night the wind continued for the Mavericks game against Riverton, Wyoming. The Mavs came from behind against Riverton, but couldn’t hold onto the lead.

Riverton extended their lead in the second, adding three of their own. Gunther was struggling on the mound, and the Mavs defense was not playing at 100 percent.

The trio of the Bellows brothers and Swope scored again in the bottom of the second. Pitcher Gunther added a run as well, cutting the Riverton lead down to just one run..

The Maverick defense stayed strong in the third, allowing just one run. In the bottom half of the inning the Mavericks took the lead for the first time with Swope and the Bellows boys, again crossing the plate. The Mavs were up 10-9.
