Blackfoot edges Idaho Falls

Broncos played flawless defense against Idaho Falls.

BLACKFOOT – Over the past several years, the Idaho Falls Tigers and the Blackfoot Broncos have played some dandy baseball games as the two teams battled back and forth in the High Country Conference season.

First one team will take the advantage and then the other team would gain the advantage. There have been some really great games played.

Friday afternoon was no exception to the rule as the two teams went at each other, with first Idaho Falls gaining the edge, then Blackfoot taking control until the bottom of the fifth inning saw Blackfoot seizing the edge and holding on for a 5-4 lead.

The Tigers grabbed the lead in the top of the first, only to see the Broncos grab the lead right back, only to see the Tigers seize the lead right back and then Blackfoot tying up the score once again.

The Tigers finally seemed to have control in the top of the fifth inning when they took the lead 4-2.

The Broncos would have nothing of that, coming right back in the bottom of the fifth, scoring three runs and grabbing the lead at 5-4 and making it stand up for the win.

Doing the damage this time around was a strong double off the bat of Jaden Harris, followed by a triple off the bat of Stryker Wood.

The Blackfoot defense made the one-run lead hold up and the Broncos prevailed by the final of 5-4.

With the win, the Broncos improved their season record to 15-5.

Blackfoot will wrap up the regular season in HCC play this week with a home game against Bonneville on Tuesday followed by a pair of games against Bonneville on Wednesday before heading into district play next week.

Blackfoot and Skyline are tied for the top spot in HCC 4A play as the teams head into the final week of play.
