Troopers struggle offensively

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Troopers didn’t manage to plate a run over the course of two games at the Cheyenne Triangular Sunday. Sheridan fell to Cheyenne 1-0 before dropping a 10-0 decision to Gillette.

Cheyenne Post 6 scored the game’s one run in the top of the first inning and rode its pitching to a victory. Sheridan’s Ayden Roush tossed seven innings of one-run baseball and struck out seven but ended up with the tough-luck loss. The Troopers didn’t give their starter much help with only a pair of hits.

The Troopers only logged two hits in their loss to the Roughriders, who tallied three first-inning runs en route to a quick five-inning affair.

Sheridan, which fell to 5-5 on the season, travels to play the Billings Scarlets Saturday.
