Pioneers wash away Green River

Late Powell rally foils upset bid

Dallas Robirds' one-out RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning completed a three-run rally as the Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team scored a 6-1, 7-6 doubleheader sweep of visiting Green River on Tuesday. With the wins, Powell improves to 29-11-2 overall this summer.

Total payout tops $322,000 this year

Trevor Brazile walked away as the 2010 all-around champion at the Cody Stampede and pocketed a check for more than $10,000 for his troubles. The prize money comes on top of paydays the Decatur, Texas, cowboy earned in team and tie-down roping.

Brazile was one of many competitors who found themselves celebrating Cowboy Christmas — an action-packed, event-filled week on the rodeo calendar where more than $1 million in prize money is on the line nationally — at this year's Cody Stampede. In all, the 91st edition of the Stampede paid out $322,443 in prize money this year.

As always, the Cody Stampede attracted some of rodeo's top names. The Stampede was designated a stop on Wrangler's Million Dollar Gold Tour this season, adding to the allure of the long-standing event.

Pioneers head to Casper Thursday

Final regular-season tourney has Colorado flavor

Originally scheduled as a standard eight-team, two-pool tournament, the format of the 2010 Mike Devereaux baseball tournament in Casper this weekend was forced to make a late change following the decision by Denver Playball to withdraw from the event. The Powell Pioneers are scheduled to make their first-ever appearance in the tournament this week.

“They had a team pull out of the tournament, so now it'll be more of a round-robin tournament,” said Powell Pioneers head coach Mike Jameson, whose team will appear in the tournament's first game at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Powell is scheduled to play Smoky Hill, Colo., at 3 p.m., then turns around to play SOCO at 5:30 p.m. The Pioneers are also scheduled to face two other Colorado teams at the tournament —Grandview at 1 p.m. on Friday and Fort Carson at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

The Pioneers will wrap up their tournament appearance at 1 p.m. on Sunday against in-state foe Torrington.

“It gives us a chance to see a higher caliber of competition which will hopefully help us out down the road,” said Jameson.

The Pioneers, currently 27-11-2 on the year, will open postseason play in three weeks in Cody.

“We didn't make the adjustments we needed to at the plate,” said Pioneers coach Mike Jameson, who saw his team strike out 12 times in the championship game. “We didn't get their pitcher out of his rhythm.”
