Monday’s Prep Baseball: Rochester Blanks Centralia
By The Chronicle
ROCHESTER — Rochester’s Nolan Eyles pitched a complete game shutout here on Monday, leading the Warriors to a 5-0 win over Centralia in an Evergreen 2A Conference baseball game.
Eyles allowed nine hits and one walk with one strikeout on 89 pitches. Centralia’s Jackson Hull also pitched a complete game for the Tigers.
“Both of them did pretty well being able to go the distance,” Rochester coach Brad Quarnstrom said. “To go a full seven innings on 89 pitches is pretty impressive and very efficient.”
At the plate, Centralia’s Cameron Erickson was 3-for-3 and Dominick Aguirre was 2-for-3.
Rochester’s Jared Winters was 1-for-2 with a RBI and Eyles helped his own cause with a RBI-single in the third inning. Cade Lenzi scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the third.
The Warriors jumped ahead early with one run in the first and two runs in the second and third inning to secure the win.
“Pitching and defense, that’s been our M.O. so far. We turned a couple of double plays tonight. Any time you do that, hopefully you’ll be in the ball game,” Quarnstrom said. “We were able to find a way to score a few runs and jumped out and scored in the first three innings. Pitching and defense was able to seal the deal. I like the way we’re playing right now and we’ll try to keep things going here.”
Rochester (4-4, 3-3) hosts Black Hills on Tuesday in an EvCo game. Centralia (7-4, 3-3) hosts Aberdeen on Tuesday.
Bulldogs Come From Behind to Defeat Beavers
TENINO — Montesano entered the seventh inning down four runs and scored seven to come from behind and defeat Tenino 10-8 in a 1A Evergreen League baseball game on Monday.
Logan Brewer started on the mound for the Beavers and allowed three runs in a solid performance. Abe Nelson came on in relief and pitched well for Tenino.
“Brewer threw really well for us. Monty can swing it pretty good, he kept them off balance well,” Tenino coach Ryan Schlesser said. “He was looking really good, he’s the reason why we’re in that game to begin with, that was nice. Nelson came on and did a really nice job too, he’s a freshman, looked good up there.”
At the plate, Alex Bratton was 3-for-5 with a RBI and three runs and Nelson hit a 2-RBI double in the third inning for the Beavers.
Tenino opened the game with three runs in the first inning and added three more runs in the third for a 6-2 lead. The Beavers tacked on a run in the fourth to lead 7-3 going into the seventh.
Montesano plated seven runs and Tenino couldn’t mount a comeback of their own with just one run to end the game.
Tenino (3-8, 1-3) travels to Elma on Thursday for a league game.
Vikings Take Down Cardinals
MOSSYROCK — The Vikings scored in every inning to earn a 20-6 win over Winlock in a non-league baseball game here on Monday.
Winlock’s Kaden Harrington started the game and pitched into the second inning. Connor Gilreath come on in relief and pitched the rest of the way.
Nick Fried started on the mound and Evan Gootgeld, Aiden Weist, Gunner Mulligan and Duece Kolb all pitched in relief.
At the plate, Kolb was 3-for-4 with four runs and a walk and Evan Gootgeld was 2-for-3 with a run for the Vikings.
Winlock’s Nathan Suhrbier was 2-for-3 with a RBI and two runs and Harrington was 1-for-2 with two RBI and a run. K.K. Hinton was 1-for-3 with a RBI and a run.
Winlock scored the opening run in the top of the first inning, but the lead didn’t last long as Mossyrock scored five runs in the first, nine runs in the second inning and five more runs in the third to lead 19-1 after three innings. Winlock didn’t go away, plating four runs in the fourth and one more run in the fifth.
“We played a real life varsity game against a Central 2B League team and we learned what the league is about. Mossyrock did a great job of pounding the zone, no matter who they have pitching,” Winlock coach Jordan Nailon said. “They made us make plays. We were physically present but mentally absent. Harrington and Suhrbier competed well despite the situation. This is one to use as a reminder of the work we have yet to accomplish.”
Winlock (0-7) takes on the Kalama-JV in Woodland on Tuesday.
Toutle Lake Sweeps Toledo
TOLEDO — Toledo couldn’t keep up with Toutle Lake here on Monday as the Ducks earned a sweep in Central 2B League baseball action.

Jesse Towns had a double and a run and Hunter Eaton had a triple, run and two walks.
Toutle Lake led 6-0 after five innings. Toledo battled back and scored four runs in the sixth but couldn’t quite compete the comeback.
It was all Toutle Lake in Game 2, 12-0. Toledo had just three hits total, with Eaton, Ryan Bloomstrom and Cody Sadler all recording a hit.
Toutle Lake scored one run in the first before tallying five runs in the fourth and six runs in the fifth to end the game in five innings.
