Monday’s Prep Baseball: Pirates Break Open Pitcher’s Duel Late for 6-0 Win
By The Chronicle
ONALASKA — Pitchers Camden Ryan and Tristen Lawrence dueled into the seventh inning before Ryan’s Pirates got the upper hand to secure a 6-0 win in Central 2B League baseball action here Monday.
Ryan worked 6 ⅔ innings, scattering three hits and striking out 12 in the first game of the rain-shortened twinbill.
Sawyer Burdick and Levi Gates both hit two-run singles with two outs in the top of the seventh inning, helping Adna score five runs to pad what had been a 1-0 lead since the first.
“Both teams played really well,” Onalaska coach Rocky Stanley said. “The pitchers threw extremely well.”
Trevor Minkoff had two hits and drove in two runs for Adna. Abel Ingle added a pair of singles.
Lawrence also worked 6 ⅔ innings, allowing five hits and striking out four.
AJ Volk, Ashton Haight and Cole Christensen all had hits for the Loggers.
“It was just two good baseball teams, and they played good baseball,” Stanley said. “I was really happy with our defense, and my pitching. They did extremely well. We just left too many guys on base.”
The teams will conclude the doubleheader on the next playable day, Stanley said.
Onalaska (9-5, 7-4 league) plays Rainier at the RAC in Lacey on Friday. Adna (14-3, 11-2 league) hosts River Ridge in a non-league game on Friday.
Bratton Pitches Beavers Past Elma
TENINO — Alex Bratton was effective here Monday night as Tenino held off Elma, 4-1, in five innings of rain-shortened 1A Evergreen League baseball action.
Bratton worked all five innings, surrendering just one hit and registering nine strikeouts.
“He threw really well,” Tenino coach Ryan Schlesser said. “He’s been lights-out lately, and he’s done a really nice job for us.”
Jesse Perez went 2-for-2 and Karl Hisaw was 1-for-1 to account for the Beavers’ three hits.
“We did what we needed to do,” Schlesser said. “We got it done. We got guys on, bunted them over, and scored on some passed balls and stuff.”
Tenino (6-9, 4-4 league) hosts Hoquiam on Wednesday.
Kalama Blanks Toledo
TOLEDO — Toledo managed just three hits as the Chinooks ran away with a 11-0 victory in five innings in a Central 2B League baseball game here on Monday.
Kalama’s Tommy Brandenburg pitched all five innings, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out 10 batters.
Hunter Eaton, Jesse Towns and Justin Filla each had a hit for the Indians. Kalama’s Hayden Wilson, Parker Wood and Brandenburg each had two hits.
Kalama plated a run in the second inning to open the scoring. The Chinooks scored four runs in the third and three runs in each the fourth and fifth inning to secure the win.
Toledo (3-9, 1-7) and Kalama were unable to complete the second game of the doubleheader, with the Chinooks leading 18-4 after three innings and a make up date and time to be determined. Toledo hosts Castle Rock on Wednesday in a non-league game.
Mountaineers Make Quick Work of Morton-White Pass
RANDLE — Rainier gave the Timberwolves all they could handle, and them some, here on Monday as they defeated the home team 10-0 and then went home with a raincheck and a 16-0 lead after two more innings of Central 2B Baseball action.
In the first game the Mountaineers scored four runs in the first and five runs in the second to run out to a commanding lead. The visitors had twelve hits in the game but allowed only one on the other side.
Michael Green, Carson Edminster, Jeff Ashby, and Ricky Cruse combined to toss the shutout for Rainier.
Eathan Smathers had the only hit for the home team in the first game.
The second contest was halted after two innings due to rain induced field conditions. The Mountaineers made the most of their limited trips to the plate, though, with 10 runs in the first inning and six more in the second frame.
Dylan Hamre was the only Morton-White Pass player to muster a hit in the abbreviated second game.
Morton White-Pass (0-13, 0-11) is scheduled to play at Napavine in a C2BL doubleheader on Friday. There was no word on a likely makeup date for Monday’s postponed game.
