  • <b>Rodeo queen....</b><br><br>
Moab resident Kortney Backus, 16, a junior at Grand County High School, competed in her first rodeo of the high school season Aug. 14 and 15 in Oakley, Utah. Backus was the top point-earner in the rodeo queen competition at the two-day event, which was hosted by North Summit and South Summit high schools. “Points earned at each rodeo add up to see who qualifies for state in June of 2016,” said Backus, who is now first in the state standings in the queening category. In other action during the rodeo, Backus roped a calf in 4.5 seconds, putting her in 15th place out of 75 competitors in the calf-roping contest. She also competed in goat tying. Backus competes as a member of Carbon High School’s rodeo team because Grand County does not have a rodeo team. Her next scheduled event on the Utah High School Rodeo circuit will be held in Vernal Aug. 21-22.                                                                Courtesy photo

    MLB: San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies(The Sports Xchange) - Carlos Gonzalez continued his home run barrage and Chris Rusin threw a complete game Thursday night as the Colorado Rockies pounded the fading San Francisco Giants 11-3. Gonzalez, who hit two homers and had seven RBIs on Wednesday, hit a two-run homer in the Rockies' four-run first and belted another two-run shot in the four-run third as the Rockies strafed starter Ryan Vogelsong. "I just stunk," said Vogelsong (9-11) who left after the first three batters reached base in the fourth and allowed a career-high tying 11 hits and eight runs.

    MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers(The Sports Xchange) - The Milwaukee Brewers finished off a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates - their second of the season - with a 5-3 victory Thursday night at Miller Park, which has been nothing short of a house of horrors for the Pirates since it opened in 2001. Pittsburgh is 84-41 at the stadium but, after Thursday, is just 17-61 since the 2007 season. This year alone, the Pirates dropped seven of nine meetings there, exactly the same number that separates them from the Cardinals in the standings.
