OREM — The person who first coined the term "boys of summer" to describe baseball wasn't thinking about the typical spring conditions along the Wasatch Front.

With snowflakes whipping around and the wind chill approaching the freezing mark, Orem used those horrendous conditions to its advantage in a 11-6 comeback win over Payson on Tuesday.

Despite the win, which included the Tigers putting up six runs in the fourth to go up for good, Orem coach Gary Miner didn't see many positives coming from his team.

"That was a case of who doesn't want to win," Miner said. "It was a pretty rough ballgame on both sides."

That response wasn't a surprise since the Tigers (4-1 region, 9-6) didn't even have to swing the bat to start their rally.

Lions (1-4, 5-9) pitcher Beau Bufton couldn't hit the strike zone in that pivotal fourth inning. It wasn't all his fault, though, as high wind was gusting at its peak right in his face when the frame began. Plus, the cold conditions couldn't have helped his arm hang in there.

But no matter the reason, Orem took advantage. Jordan Sargent was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, Colton Baird was hit by a pitch, and Bufton repeated the cycle by hitting another Tigers batter and walking J.T. Lindsay to bring the first run of the rally in.

Next up was Travis Strong, who caught a bit of luck when his fly ball was dropped by Payson left fielder Dallin Willes to score Sargent. Jordan Johnston tied the game with a fly to left, and a balk by Payson's reliever gave Orem a 6-5 lead.

The Lions just couldn't get outs, and the Tigers' onslaught continued as Jeff Mella smacked a double to score Strong. An RBI single by Sargent ended the scoring.

The second inning saw both teams put two runs up apiece. Payson also scored in the third. Mitchell Cowden and Dalton Smith hit solo shots for the Lions.

"The thing that's been killing us all year is we've been getting one-run innings or maybe two-run innings," said Payson coach Scott Haney. "But we're not blowing the doors open like we should be."
