Cardinals Sweep Chinooks

WINLOCK — The victories weren’t pretty, but Winlock will take a sweep of Kalama in a Central 2B League softball doubleheader here on Wednesday.

The Cardinals won Game 1, 9-7, recording just one hit in the game. Karlie Jones pitched a complete game for Winlock, allowing nine hits, seven runs and one walk with 10 strikeouts. She helped her own cause at the plate with a walk and two runs.

Makayla Allbritton tallied the only hit of the game and added a walk and two runs. Raychel Squibb had three runs and three walks and Madison Lofberg added two RBI.

Winlock scored two runs in the first and three runs in the second for a 5-1 lead after two innings. The Cardinals plated three runs in the fourth and tacked on one more run in the sixth to secure the victory.

In Game 2, Winlock had eight hits in a 15-5 win in six innings. Squibb started in the circle and pitched five innings, allowing four hits, four earned runs and one walk with eight strikeouts.

Addison Hall was 2-for-3 with a double, two runs and two RBI and Lofberg was 2-for-4 with a double, a run and three RBI for the Cardinals.

Winlock trailed 2-1 after the first inning but scored eight runs in the second inning to lead 9-2. The Cardinals scored two runs in the third, fourth and sixth inning to end the game early.

“I was happy we won. It’s been a little bit of a piece together situation and we put people in places that they aren’t used to,” Winlock coach Chantel Nelson said. “We rallied the bats so I was pretty pleased.”

Nelson noted the performances of Jones and Squibb, each pitching a complete game and performing well to help the Cardinals get the win.

Winlock (7-4, 5-4) hosts Lake Quinault on Friday at 3:30 p.m. in a non-league game.

Titans Roll Past Warriors

PE ELL — Pe Ell-Willapa Valley didn’t allow a hit in either game to earn a sweep of Chief Leschi in a Pacific 2B League softball game here on Wednesday.

Bearcats Beat Down Black Hills

W.F. West needed just five innings to dispatch Black Hills here on Wednesday as they outscored their foes 12-1 in Evergreen 2A Conference softball action.

Jasmine Gallea went the distance for the Bearcats in the circle to earn the win. She allowed just one run, three hits, and three walks while striking out five Wolves along the way.

“She came in in our game on Monday and had a really good shutdown inning. She threw a lot of ground balls today and worked the zone and threw all of our pitches well,” said W.F. West coach Caty Lieseke.

On offense the Bearcats were scoring in bunches thanks to a dozen hits on the day, including three home runs. Taylor Barker and Annika Waring each hit solo shots while Paetynn Lopez launched a two-run dinger.

Ava Fugate and Ashlyn Whalen each drove in two runs for W.F. West.

“It was just solid all around. It was a great day at the plate. Jasmine did great in the circle and the defense took care of what they needed to,” Lieseke said. “There’s nothing more that I could have asked for as far as taking care of business.”

W.F. West (10-1, 5-1 league) will host Tumwater on Friday.

Toledo Takes Down Mossyrock

MOSSYROCK — Toledo combined to score 27 runs in two games to earn a sweep of Mossyrock in a Central 2B League softball game here on Wednesday.

Toledo collected 18 hits to earn a 12-5 win in Game 1. Jolee Hadaller pitched all seven innings for the Vikings and recorded five strikeouts. She helped her own cause at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a double and a RBI. Trista Rockwood had a double and a RBI and Shaylea Demarest was 2-for-3. Bailey Tofaeono had a double and a RBI for Mossyrock.

Toledo scored a run in the first and opened the game up with seven runs in the fourth inning. Mossyrock scored four runs in the fifth and another run in the sixth but it was too late for a comeback.

It was all Toledo in Game 2, winning 15-1 in five innings. Mossyrock’s Saige Brindle was 1-for-2 and Hadaller added a double. Saylor Stone was 1-for-2 with a RBI.

Gracie May West pitched all five innings and had three strikeouts for the Vikings.

Toledo scored four runs in the first and plated nine runs in the fifth to end the game early. Mossyrock scored their lone run in the second inning.

Toledo (5-8, 4-5) hosts Kalama for a doubleheader on Monday while Mossyrock (3-5, 3-5) faces Morton-White Pass in Morton on Friday.

Rochester Uses Four-Run Fifth Inning to Top Tigers

ROCHESTER — Both teams racked up eight hits but Centralia found out that not all hits are created equal as they fell to Rochester 4-2 in Evergreen 2A Conference softball action.

The Warriors’ pitcher, Delaney Glazer, held the Tigers to just single runs in the fourth and seventh innings. She picked up seven strikeouts in the game to help squash any prospective Tiger rallies.

“Delaney was lights out the first time through the order. Centralia, to their credit, played some small ball and pushed a run across,” said Rochester coach Dave Montgomery. “They gave us a little bit of a scare in the seventh inning but we were able to flash the leather and get some big clutch pitching when we needed it and picked up a big league win.”

Montgomery noted that Glazer is sporting just a 1.36 ERA so far this season and added that she pitched through some arm soreness early in the week.

“She’s definitely getting things done for us,” the Warriors’ coach said.

The Warriors scored all of their runs in the fifth inning. That four-run outburst was fueled in part by a home run from Callie Crawford after the Tigers intentionally walked a batter to face her.

“Callie made them pay by crushing a three run bomb to centerfield,” said Montgomery.

Crawford finished the game 3-for-4. Catcher Lexie Trombley also added a hit.

McKenzie Ulrich handled the pitching duties for Centralia and collected six strikeouts in six innings of work.

“Kenzie did a great job. There was just one inning where she made a few mistakes. The pitch to Callie Crawford was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Two mistakes cost us. It was a complete game and I couldn’t ask for more than that, I guess,” said Centralia coach David Orr.

Kalyssa Conaway had two hits for the Tigers and drove in a run.

After upsetting W.F. West earlier in the week, Montgomery says his Warriors are starting to believe in themselves.

“I’m really proud of the way that our freshman have been stepping up and playing,” Montgomery said. “The coaching staff, we’ve been telling these girls they’re all good hitters. They just have to go out there and get the job done. The mental approach has really changed a lot over the last couple of games.”

Rochester (6-5, 3-4) will travel to Black Hills on Friday. Centralia (4-4, 2-3) will host Tumwater on Thursday and then travel to Aberdeen on Friday.
