Saturday’s 2B Baseball: Burdick’s Big Game Leads Adna in Sweep of PWV
PE ELL — Spencer Burdick had an afternoon to remember and Adna swept Pe Ell-Willapa Valley, 10-1 and 13-0, here Saturday in a Central 2B League baseball doubleheader.
Burdick hit for the cycle in Game 1 — recording a single, double, triple and home run — with four RBIs, and struck out 13 while allowing one hit in five innings of work to get the win.
Adna led 3-1 after three innings, but scored five in the sixth to put the game on ice.
Derek Chilcoate went 2 for 5 with a double, Brady Collins added an RBI double and Sawyer Burdick hit a double for Adna. Preston Ashley pitched the final two innings, holding PWV scoreless and striking out three.
Wes Wilson threw a complete game in the nightcap, striking out five without allowing a run.
Isaac Ingle went 2 for 3 with four RBIs, Chance Fay was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and Conner Weed added an RBI single for the Pirates.
Adna (7-3) is scheduled to play at King’s Way Christian on Monday. Pe Ell-Willapa Valley (5-5, 4-5 league) is slated to play at Kalama on Monday.
MWP, Ony Split Twinbill
ONALASKA — One bad inning came back to bite the Loggers in an 8-2 Game 1 loss, but Onalaska bit back with a 4-3 win over Morton-White Pass in the nightcap for a Central 2B League baseball split here Saturday.
The Timberwolves plated five runs in the fifth inning of Game 1, and led 7-0 after three.
Tyler Birch pitched the first six innings for MWP with eight strikeouts, and helped his own cause with two hits and an RBI. Kaleb Rashoff added two hits, drove in a run and scored three times for MWP.
Matt Kurzeika had two hits with a double for Onalaska and pitched a complete game, striking out five and allowing three earned runs.
Game 2 was a bit closer, with Morton-White Pass scoring three in the sixth inning to go up 4-2 and holding on late.
Cody Cooper hit a three-run double for Onalaska in the sixth inning, and Deuce Kolb had two hits and drove in three runs for MWP.
Morton-White Pass scored in the top of the seventh to make it 4-3 with the bases loaded and one out. A fly ball to left field, however, was dropped on the transfer and ruled no catch, but the Loggers got the ball to the infield and forced out runners at second and third to end the game and the run was ruled as having not scored.
The teams are both in the bottom half of the C2BL standings, making it a key matchup in the playoff race, Logger coach Rocky Stanley pointed out.
“It’s just a battle down there,” he said. “But, both teams played hard, and they give it their best.”
Onalaska (4-7, 3-7 league) hosts Napavine on Wednesday. Morton-White Pass (4-8, 2-8 league) hosts Adna on Wednesday.
Mules Sweep Mossyrock on a Big Stage
CORVALLIS, Ore. — The games didn’t go the Vikings’ way, but they certainly had no complaints about the facilities here Saturday.
Mossyrock lost 5-0 and 10-0 to Wahkiakum in a Central 2B League doubleheader played on Oregon State University’s Coleman Field.
“It was awesome. We haven’t seen the sun since probably fall, so it was nice first that it was 60-some degrees with blue skies,” Mossyrock coach Jay Henderson said. “And you’re playing on the No. 1 NCAA team in the nation’s field. So, the whole atmosphere the whole day, it was really worth it.”
Aaron King had both hits for Mossyrock in the opener, while Kord Senter, Brennen Shriver and Cameron Fitzhugh had the Vikings’ hits in Game 2.
Wahkiakum scored six runs in the fourth and fifth innings to end the nightcap early, though Henderson added that the experience was a good one.
“If you can’t get excited for baseball on a day like that, you better check your heartbeat,” he said. “And the nice part was, between games and after games, both teams are kind of hanging around, enjoying every second of it. The parents are taking pictures of their kids, and that’s what it’s all about.”
Mossyrock (0-8) is scheduled to host Toledo on Monday and play at Winlock on Thursday.
Ducks Sweep Close Doubleheader With Winlock
TOUTLE — Winlock came close in Game 2, but Toutle Lake had just enough juice to pick up an 8-4, 6-5 Central 2B League baseball sweep here Saturday.
The Ducks scored six in the fourth inning to win the opener, with Jake Buck working all seven innings on the mound to get the win. Toutle Lake had eight hits, but took advantage of eight walks in the victory.
Zach Weinert went 2 for 3 and drove in three runs for the Cardinals, and Wyatt Dean was 1 for 3 with an RBI.
The nightcap lasted eight innings, with Toutle Lake scoring a run to tie it in the bottom of the seventh and another to win in the eighth.
Weinert, Dean, Anthony Clevenger and Chase Miller were all 2 for 4 for Winlock, with Miller and Weinert each driving in two runs. Clevenger and Dean each hit doubles, and Dean knocked in a run.
Weinert started on the mound and worked six innings, striking out seven and walking one while giving up two earned runs.
Wyatt Palmer went 3 for 5 for Toutle Lake in Game 2. Lincoln Kessler pitched the last three innings for Toutle Lake to get the win, striking out four without giving up a run.
Winlock (4-7, 3-7 league) plays a nonleague game at Naselle on Tuesday and hosts Mossyrock on Thursday.
Stanley Fans 16; Napavine Sweeps Rainier
NAPAVINE — The Tigers allowed just four hits in two games, sweeping Rainier 8-0 and 9-8 in a Central 2B League doubleheader here on Saturday.
Game 1 was dominated by the pitching of Wyatt Stanley, who allowed one hit in the seventh inning and struck out 16 batters in 90 pitches.
“It was probably one of his better games pitched this year. When you have 16 Ks with 90 pitches, you’re really efficient with your pitches,” Napavine coach Brian Demarest said. “It’s too bad for Wyatt (not getting a no-hitter), but I told him I don’t care about all that stuff, the Ws and him being healthy and throwing well are important.”
The Tigers scored seven runs in the fourth inning, and added one more in the sixth to seal the win.
Mac Fagerness was 2 for 3 with a double, three RBIs and a run and twin brother Sam was 1 for 4 with an RBI and a run. Mason Butler had an RBI and two runs for the Tigers.
Game 2 was a different story. Napavine saw an 8-3 lead disappear in the top of seventh inning as the Mountaineers tied the game at 8-8. The Tigers responded in the bottom of the seventh, as Jordan Purvis hit a single with the bases loaded to score the winning run.
“It was a lack of throwing strikes which let them back in our game. We had a lack of concentration and got ourselves into a bad position,” Demarest said. “I didn’t like losing a lead, but I really liked watching our kids play out of it.”
Purvis was 3 for 5 with an RBI and a run, Wyatt Stanley was 1 for 2 with an RBI and two runs and Ben Woodrum was 2 for 3 with two RBI’s and two runs.
Sam Fagerness got the start for the Tigers, pitching five innings while allowing seven hits and three runs with eight strikeouts.
Napavine (9-1, 9-1 league) travels to face Onalaska Wednesday in a C2BL doubleheader.
