Monday’s 2B Softball: Tigers Take Two From Adna
Tigers Take Two From Adna
NAPAVINE — Napavine’s Abbi Music pitched a total of 12 ⅓ innings to help lead the Tigers to a sweep of Adna in softball doubleheader between two undefeated Central 2B League squads.
The Tigers took the opener, 4-0, with Music recording the shutout while allowing four hits and striking out eight.
Music added a double and an RBI at the plate, and Solana Sanchez had two hits and an RBI.
Jenikka Poppe pitched all six innings in Game 1 for Adna, allowing nine hits and two earned runs with three strikeouts. Emma Eko added two hits for the Pirates.
The Tigers broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the fifth, then pushed across two more in the sixth to seal the win.
Adna led 4-0 in the nightcap before the Tigers rallied for a 5-4 win.
Music pitched 5 ⅓ innings, allowing an earned run on five hits with three strikeouts.
At the plate, Maddie Thompson had two hits with a double and Ada Williams had a double and two RBIs. Sanchez recorded two hits with an RBI for Napavine.
Haley Rainey pitched all six innings for Adna, allowing two earned runs on five hits with seven strikeouts.
Rainey helped her own cause at the plate with two hits, including a home run. Eko also had two hits and an RBI.
Williams hit a two-run double in the fifth inning to tie the game, and Sanchez singled in what turned out to be the winning run.
“The second game showed me quite a bit,” Napavine coach Chad Williams said. “It was a great, gritty, gutsy win. First game was pretty much Abbi Music, she was really the kind of kid that we’ve seen all year. She’s been dominating. It’s really good to see.”
Williams was impressed with the pitching from Adna’s Poppe and Rainey.
“I don’t think you ever expect to sweep Adna. I don’t care what it is but I was happy with the way we played,” Williams said. “We had a couple good practices at the end of last week, even though it was in the rain and the slop. I felt like we were ready, but to get a sweep would be, I would say, probably beyond expectations, for sure.”
Pirate coach Bruce Pocklington noted that Napavine simply played harder in Monday’s doubleheader.
“I think they had more heart. I don’t think we were very competitive. She (Music) threw a very good ball game for them, but I just don’t think we competed at the plate very well,” Pocklington said. “We got ahead in the second game and then kind of rolled over as soon as we get behind. Our M.O. is we kind of roll over and play dead, and that’s not the M.O. I want to have.”
Adna (5-2, all league games) will try to bounce back on Saturday, hosting Pe Ell-Willapa Valley on Saturday at noon in a C2BL doubleheader. Napavine (8-0, 7-0 league) hits the road on Saturday to face Rainier at noon in a doubleheader.
Pollard, Patrick Homer in Titans’ Sweep
PE ELL — Sid Pollard homered in the opener and Britney Patrick homered to end the nightcap as Pe Ell-Willapa Valley swept Morton-White Pass, 12-2 and 11-0, in C2BL softball action here Monday.
Pollard hit a two-run shot and drove in three runs in Game 1, while Patrick was 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs. Katie Adkins, Kamryn Adkins and Jeorgi Ritzman each had two hits with a double for the Titans.
Kamryn Adkins pitched all five innings of the 12-2 win, striking out six without walking a batter.
“She did fine, and the defense was pretty darn solid,” PWV coach Ken Olson said. “Everything’s rolling along pretty fine.”
The Titans led 9-0 in the bottom of the fifth inning before Patrick hit her two-run homer to end the late game in walk-off fashion.
Katie Adkins — the younger of the two Adkins sisters — pitched Game 2, striking out eight with two walks, and went 2 for 4 at the plate with a triple.
“It’s good to see Katie step up against a solid club. She did really well,” Olson said. “We’re going to need both of them throwing their best, and the last two games they’ve been throwing really well.”
Kamryn Adkins was 2 for 2 with three RBIs, and Katelyn McGough was 3 for 4.
Sydney Brooks went 2 for 3 for MWP.
Pe Ell-Willapa Valley (8-0, all league) plays a twinbill at Adna on Saturday. Morton-White Pass (4-4, all league) hosts Onalaska on Saturday in Randle.
Cards Sweep Wahkiakum
CATHLAMET — Winlock picked up a quick pair of wins here Monday, beating Wahkiakum 16-0 and 12-1 in a C2BL softball doubleheader.
The Cardinals led 11-0 after two innings in Game 1. Cheleena Squibb went 3 for 3 with a double, a triple and three RBIs, while Jenna Jones doubled and drove in a run. Raychel Squibb added a pair of triples and two RBIs and Karlie Jones went 2 for 3.
Jenna Jones pitched all four innings, striking out nine without walking a batter.
Raychel Squibb and Jenna Jones combined to throw a one-hitter in the nightcap, with Jones fanning seven and Squibb striking out four.
Cheleena Squibb went 3 for 3 with a double, a triple and three RBIs again in Game 2, while Jenna Jones was 2 for 2 with an RBI. Raychel Squibb tripled and drove in three runs.
Winlock (4-5, 3-5 league) hosts Toutle Lake in a doubleheader on Saturday with a 3 p.m. start time.
Onalaska Clobbers Rainier
ONALASKA — The Lady Loggers recorded 34 hits in two games against Rainier to sweep a Central 2B League doubleheader here Monday.
Onalaska won Game 1, 18-0, in three innings.
Amy Henderson and Haylie Howard combined for a no-hitter. Henderson was 2 for 3 at the plate with a double, a triple and four RBIs and Howard was 3 for 3. Alicia Vint was 2 for 3 with a triple and Adalee Sabin was 3 for 3 with a double.
Rainier got on the board in Game 2, but Onalaska won 16-6 in six innings.
Olivia Mitten was 2 for 4 with a triple and three RBIs. Vint was 4 for 5 with two doubles and a triple, Amy Henderson was 5 for 5 with four RBIs and two doubles and Howard was 3 for 4 with two RBIs.
“I thought the first game, we came out and attacked the ball well, hit the ball hard. That’s always good to see; sometimes you don’t know how they’re going to go about it,” Onalaska coach Ken Ulery said. “The girls’ attitude and effort was good, so I’ll take that all day long.”
Onalaska (6-0, all league games) hosts Mossyrock on Thursday.
Toledo Sweeps Mossyrock
TOLEDO — The Indians took two games from Mossyrock, 16-6 and 18-3, here Monday in C2BL softball action.
Jessie Hull and Gracie Madill each had two hits for Toledo in the opener, with Hull — returning to the team after an injury — and Kendra Coverdell holding the Vikings to four hits.
Amya Thomassom added a double and Haleigh Holmes tripled for the winners.
Madill pitched all three innings in Game 2, allowing four hits and going 3 for 4 at the plate herself. Haleigh Holmes added two hits with an inside-the-park home run.
“In both of them we did really well. We were just on it,” Toledo coach Ashlee Gieseke said. “Everybody was loud and talking and having fun, and we just did really well.”
Toledo (3-5, all league games) hosts Tenino in a nonleague doubleheader on Thursday, then plays at Kalama on Saturday. Mossyrock (0-6) plays at Onalaska on Thursday.
