Friday’s 2B Baseball: Adna Holds Off Onalaska
By The Chronicle
ADNA — Adna got two solid performances on the mound, which helped the Pirates sweep Onalaska, 3-1 and 5-1, in a Central 2B League doubleheader here on Friday.
In Game 1, Spencer Burdick took the mound and allowed one hit while striking out 16 batters with allowing an earned run to pick up the win.
At the plate, Derek Chilcoate was 2 for 3 and Conner Weed had a double. Brothers Spencer and Sawyer Burdick, along with Brady Collins, each had RBIs.
Jack Beck pitched all seven innings for the Loggers, allowing six hits and three runs in a tough losing performance.
Adna’s Wes Wilson and Preston Ashley combined to throw a no-hitter in a 5-1 victory in Game 2. Wilson had 9 strikeouts in the performance.
Onalaska scored in the third inning for a 1-0 lead, which held up until the fifth inning when Adna scored all five runs to earn the win.
Chance Fay had a two-run double, and Sawyer Burdick and Weed each had an RBI.
“They’ve made great progress in their program. They’ve been playing people tough,” Adna coach Jon Rooklidge said of Onalaska. “They’re playing teams at the top tough. They put up a great battle and their pitchers did a nice job. We just played good baseball today.”
Adna (11-5, 11-3 league) wraps up the regular season against Rainier on Tuesday in a Central 2B League doubleheader on senior night in Adna. Onalaska (5-10, 4-10 league) ends the regular season against Pe Ell-Willapa Valley in a C2BL doubleheader on Tuesday at home.
Toutle Lake Sweeps Mossyrock
TOUTLE — Toutle Lake surrendered just seven hits in two games, allowing the Ducks to sweep Mossyrock in a Central 2B League baseball doubleheader here on Friday.
Toutle Lake won Game 1, 11-1, in six innings. The Ducks scored five runs in the third and sixth innings to earn the win.
Mossyrock scored its lone run in the sixth inning. Brennan Shriver had a triple and Kord Senter and Aaron King each had hits for the Vikings.
Nick Fried got the start for the Vikings and pitched five innings in a solid outing.
“Nick pitched well for us. He gave up a few unearned runs, mixed in with a couple timely hits for them, but other than one inning, he didn’t give up a run the rest of the way. I was happy with how he pitched,” Mossyrock coach Jay Henderson said.
Game 2 was a different story, as Mossyrock led 1-0 after an inning. The Vikings added two runs in the third, but were answered by the Ducks with three runs in the bottom of the third. Toutle scored three in the sixth to take the lead and hold on for the win.
Kord Senter was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and Shriver had a hit and a run for Mossyrock.
“Shriver pitched really well, he did a good job of keeping them off balance,” Henderson said. “We competed with a real good team. I was happy with how we competed. It would be nice to get over the hump a little bit, but it’s not from a lack of effort.”
Henderson noted that Stryder Couch had a good day behind the plate, throwing out four Toutle Lake baserunners trying to steal.
Mossyrock (1-14, 1-13 league) will wrap up the season on Tuesday against Kalama in a Central 2B League matchup on senior day in Mossyrock.
