I-5 Toyota Drops Opener in Reno
RENO, NEV. — Dakota Hawkins had a solid starting pitching performance for I-5 Toyota/Mountain Dew, but a poor fifth inning allowed Danville to win 7-1 in the opener of the Josh Anderson Memorial Tournament at the University of Nevada-Reno on Tuesday.
Hawkins pitched five innings and allowed three earned runs with four strikeouts.
Nole Wollan had two hits and an RBI and Gabe O’Neil added two hits for I-5 Toyota.
The game was tied at one entering the fifth inning, but a misplayed fly ball gave Danville new life and following a double and a couple of I-5 errors, the Hoots put up five runs to secure the victory.
“We misplayed a fly ball that doesn’t go in the scorebook as an error. If we catch that ball, there’s two outs and nobody on base,” I-5 Toyota coach Jake LeDuc said. “It snowballed after that. We misplayed it and they took advantage.”
