A heavy downpour Thursday afternoon postponed the Riverton Raiders American Legion baseball conference doubleheader vs. Green River. Green River had a 1-0 lead after the top of the first inning when the rain hit Roy Peck Field. Riverton checked into the doubleheader with a 10-14 mark overall, 3-1 in conference play. "We were optimistic that we would be able to sweep Green River because they were short-handed," Riverton manager Brady Beers said. Green River arrived with just nine players. The two games are rescheduled for Tuesday, July, 8, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Riverton takes on Evanston at noon Saturday in another conference doubleheader at Roy Peck Field. Next week After the Evanston games, Riverton travels to Lovell on Monday for a doubleheader. The Raiders play Tuesday at Cody for one A game and one B game. The B game will have the younger players compete against each other. Riverton returns to the diamond on Monday, July 7, for a doubleheader with Cody. "You play a lot of games in two months when you play Legion baseball," Beers said. "It's just something that you have to deal with."
