Monday’s Prep Baseball: Tenino Falls to Eatonville
By The Chronicle
EATONVILLE — Tenino recorded four errors against Eatonville, as the Beavers fell 9-4 in a nonleague baseball game here on Monday.
Tenino’s Spencer Brewer and Rob Wall each were 2 for 4 at the plate.
The Beavers took a 2-1 lead after one inning. Eatonville scored two runs in the 3rd to take a 3-2 lead.
Tenino retook the lead with two runs in the 5th for a 4-3 lead. But in the bottom of the 5th, the Beavers gave up five runs, and couldn’t recover to allow Eatonville to earn the win.
“It’s the same story as the last two games, we have one bad inning,” Tenino coach Conner Hogue said. “It starts with, defensively, we make a mistake and we let the wind get taken out of our sails and it turns into a big inning. We fix a few of our little mistakes and we’ll start pulling these games out.”
It wasn’t all bad for the Beavers, as they recorded eight hits and had a solid day hitting.
“The way the guys hit the ball, they were making adjustments at the plate,” Hogue said. “They made some great plays today. The outfield did well, we’ve had a ton of positives each game. We just have one or two small nagging problems that blow up to be a bigger issue. These games can go a lot differently.”
Tenino (0-3) will try to get their first win on Friday, hosting Forks in the Beavers’ first Evergreen 1A League game.
