March 15 prep briefs: Basalt baseball ties with Moffat County as light fades
The Basalt High School baseball team tied 7-7 with visiting Moffat County on Thursday at Crawford Field in El Jebel.
The game was originally scheduled for seven innings but even 10 proved to not be enough. The game eventually ended in a tie as daylight ran out on the unlit field.
The Longhorns scored two runs in each the first and third inning to lead 4-0, but Moffat answered with a three-run fourth inning. Down 5-3 going to the sixth, the Bulldogs scored a pair of runs to tie the game and force the extra innings.
Moffat took a 7-5 lead after scoring two runs in the top of the ninth inning, but Basalt rallied for two of its own in the bottom half of the inning and that was all Mother Nature would allow.
The 10-inning tie makes Basalt 0-1-1 on the season after losing to Aspen on Tuesday in the opener. The Longhorns are next scheduled to host Steamboat Springs at 3 p.m. Friday.
