OREM — Cedar did it again, staving off elimination with another clutch victory at the 3A State Baseball Tournament Friday. This time the Redmen had a lot of help.

After dropping a game in the opening pod last weekend to Juan Diego, Cedar won its fourth straight game in the 3A State Tournament with a 13-8 victory over Park City at Brent Brown Ballpark Friday night.

In the tourney’s late game, Cedar got a heaping helping of assistance from the Miners in the third inning. The Redmen got a few hits, but mostly it was Park City giving bases — and runs — away. PC issued seven walks, three wild pitches, a balk and an error in what turned out to be an 11-run inning that turned the game from a 4-1 Miners lead to a 12-4 Cedar blowout.

The Redmen will battle Desert Hills at 9 a.m. at the BBB in yet another elimination game. Cedar has lost twice this season to the Thunder.

STGNews videographer Dallas Griffin was there to capture the highlights Friday, including the monstrous debacle in the third.
