The Laramie Rangers American Legion baseball team didn’t muster a lot of offense as it was swept in a doubleheader by the Greeley GOJOs Tuesday night in Greeley, Colorado.

Laramie lost the first game 11-1 in a game that ended in the bottom of the fifth inning due to the 10-run mercy rule. The Rangers lost the second game 10-0 in a game that ended after six innings.

The Rangers are now (7-15) on the season.

In the first game, Greeley scored at least one run in every inning, including seven over the first two.

Laramie had just three hits, all singles by Michael Schutterle. The Rangers’ lone run was driven in by Alex Flores on a ground out in the top of the third, which scored Caleb Eaton.

Schutterle took the loss on the mound, and was the only Laramie pitcher in the game.

The Rangers had only three singles in the second game by Janson Adair, Ramon Gomez and Ben Ruckman. Greeley jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first inning, and scored six runs over the final three innings.

Koy Jorgensen went 2-for-3 for Greeley with a double and five RBI.

Three Laramie pitched combined for eight walks. The Rangers also committed four errors. Three Greeley pitches struck out nine, and walked only one.

Laramie plays a single game at Casper at 5 p.m. today. It hosts the Loveland (Colo.) Aces for a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. Friday at Cowboy Field.
