Riverton Legion Baseball Update
Even though the Riverton Raiders are 3 games over .500, they have been quite successful in conference play with just a single loss. The Raiders took 1st place in the Douglas tournament over the weekend and started out with a 7-0 win over Douglas on Friday evening. Beau Anderson drove in 2 runs and the Raiders got a very well-pitched game from Darrick Devries who threw 7 innings and struck out 6.
On Saturday, Riverton lost to Green River 13-4 in that tournament but rebounded with a 7-6 win over Powell. Hunter Hauck had 3 hits, 3 RBIs "s, and struck out 3 on the mound. The Raiders defeated Torrington 10-8 for the tournament title as Nathan Hutchison drove in 4 runs and Hauck drove in 2.
This team had Jorey Anderson on their team and he was an all-state football player for Worland and played in the Shrine Bowl. He was also an all-state selection in soccer.
Riverton's manager Wally Lofthus played in the Oakland A's minor league organization for 3 years and was an All-American at the College of Southern Idaho and an All-American hitter for UNLV. So he brings plenty of perspective to the field.
We talked with Anderson, Lofthus, and Hutchison after their win over Douglas on Friday plus we have some photos to share in our gallery below. Enjoy!
