Summit Extreme Black Diamonds end season early with playoff loss

It wasn't the ending the Black Diamonds were hoping for, but they were up against tough odds.

The team traveled to Parker to take on the GameDay Saints in the first round of the playoff tournament on Tuesday.

The Saints finished the season in second place in the Mountain West League with a 17-10 record so the Black Diamonds knew they would be facing a longshot to advance, and unfortunately the Saints closed the door early. The Saints scored two runs in the first two innings of the game, and never looked back, winning 16-6 over the Black Diamonds.

To make a tough week worse, the consolation game scheduled to take place in Breckenridge the next day was canceled due to rain, leaving the Black Diamonds without the chance for redemption.

As things draw to a close we take a look back at some of the highlights of the Black Diamonds' season.
