Grand Junction starter Neil Ryan was the winning pitcher in the Tigers’ 8-6 win over Fruita Monument on Tuesday at Suplizio Field.

Going down to the wire

Tigers' win creates jam in SWL

For a moment Tuesday night, the Fruita Monument High School baseball team appeared destined for another wild comeback victory.
Down 8-3 to Grand Junction with one out in the top of the seventh inning, Dylan Row hit a towering, three-run home run over the left-field fence. The next batter, Sam Graf, singled to right field to build momentum.
But Tigers reliever Ty Dixon took a moment to refocus, stepped onto the mound and coaxed back-to-back fly balls to seal an 8-6 Southwestern League win at Suplizio Field.
The senior lefty, with one exception, kept the ball down in the zone and turned in a solid relief outing to complement a quality start from Neil Ryan.
