The Longhorns trailed 2-0 early after a Meeker home run. Basalt’s big inning came in the fifth with four runs to take the lead. Meeker got one run back and trailed 4-3 in the sixth inning before Basalt ran away with the game, scoring eight runs over the final two innings.

Basalt, ranked No. 5 in Class 3A this week, is 10-1 on the season and winner of seven straight. The Longhorns next play a doubleheader at Gunnison on Saturday.
