* This score has already changed as Casper has tied it at 8 in the 8th. That's been the tone of the game. The Chukars scored 2 in the 1st on a Murray Watts RBI double and Malcom Culver RBI single. Casper got a run back in their half of the inning off Chad Blauer, but IF scored 3 in the 2nd on a Cameron Conner RBI groundout and a rare 2-run wild pitch that made it 5-1 IF. Blauer stranded 2 in the 4th but the lead vanished in a 4-run Casper 5th off Blauer and Jordan Roualdes. Roualdes gave up a solo homer in the 6th and Robert Penny allowed another run in the 7th to make it 7-5. The Chukars launched a comeback in the 8th as Mike Liberto hit an RBI single and Dale Cornstubble hit a 2-run double to make it 8-7. Penny balked in the tying run in the 8th. We'll see how it shakes out. The Chukars finish their season Thursday.
