The East jumped out to a 4-0 lead in their first two at-bats. The West scored three in the second. After the East pulled ahead 6-3, the West tied it in the third.

Jensen’s home run in the sixth put the West in front. They added two in the seventh and one in the eighth.

East got one back in the ninth, but their rally fell short.

The game featured 35 players from 10 of the Single-A programs around Wyoming. State champion Cody was not represented, as the Cubs are presently playing at the Northwest Class ‘A’ Regional Tournament (NWCART) in Anchorage, AK.

Jax Peterson of Green River won the home run derby. He hit five home runs in his ten swings.
