Monday’s Prep Softball: Pirates Earn Soggy Win Over Onalaska
By The Chronicle
ONALASKA — Adna and Onalaska played in soggy conditions here on Monday, with the Pirates earning a 16-4 win in a Central 2B League softball game.
Haley Rainey pitched all six innings for the Pirates, allowing four hits, four earned runs and four walks with 13 strikeouts. She also helped her own cause at the plate with two doubles, a run and a RBI.
“They’re pretty good,” Onalaska coach Rich Teitzel said of the league-leading Pirates. “(Rainey) is pretty solid. We started to get into her the second and third time through, but we just ran out of time.”
Payton Aselton was 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs and two RBI and Emma Eko was 2-for-5 with two RBI. Olivia Rodriguez was 3-for-5 with two runs and two RBI and Skye Snow was 2-for-3 with a home run, three runs and three RBI. Ruby Bower added a double, two runs and two RBI for Adna.
Onalaska freshman Hannah James was 2-for-3 with a home run, a run scored and four RBI and Amy Henderson hit a double and scored a run.
Adna scored one run in the first inning but plated five runs in the third inning for a 6-0 lead. Onalaska got on the board with one run in the fourth inning, but the Pirates tallied three runs in the fifth and seven runs in the sixth to end the game early.
Adna (15-1, 12-0) travels to Castle Rock on Tuesday for a non-league game. Onalaska (9-4, 8-1 league) plays at Rainier on Friday.
Note: A makeup date for the second half of Monday’s scheduled doubleheader has yet to be set.
MWP Picks Up Damp Sweep of Rainier
RANDLE — The Timberwolves got off to a slow start in the opener, but found their rhythm and swept Rainier, 13-3 and 11-5, here Monday in C2BL softball action.
Morton-White Pass led 5-3 after three innings of Game 1, then plated seven runs to break things open.
“In the fourth inning we kind of exploded and attacked the ball,” MWP coach Rob Hazen said. “We kind of went through the motions at first, and finally broke out the bats and got ‘er done.”
Sydney Brooks was 3-for-4 with a homer and Shelby Karns homered and went 2-for-2 for MWP. Hailey Brooks was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, and Hannah Smathers and Jaiden Linder were both 2-for-4 with a double.
Linder also pitched all five innings, finishing with 12 strikeouts.
Rainier led 4-1 after an inning in Game 2, but MWP put six runs across to take the lead in the second and never looked back.
Hailey Brooks went 3-for-4, Hazen was 2-for-3 with a double, and Smathers was 2-for-3. Linder pitched another complete game, striking out six.
“Rainier’s improved,” Hazen pointed out. “They’ve got a couple pitchers that throw hard. They’ve got a couple ballers there. They’re going to be good in a couple years.”
Morton-White Pass (7-5, 6-5 league) plays at Napavine on Friday.
Note: It was senior night for the Timberwolves, and MWP honored Smathers, Sydney Brooks, Taylor Hazen and Belen Salguero.
Winlock Swings Past Wahkiakum
WINLOCK — The Cardinals scored eight runs in the first inning to cruise to a 17-7 win in five innings over Wahkiakum in a Central 2B League softball game here on Monday.
Karlie Jones pitched all five innings for Winlock, allowing four hits, five earned runs and eight walks while striking out 11 batters. She also helped her own cause at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a home run, three runs and four RBI.
“It was long and rainy, but the outcome was good,” Winlock coach Chantel Nelson said. “We’re trying to work on all of our things to get ready for the rest of the season, and we were able to adjust and add some things to our skillset and it’s working out for us.”
Raychel Squibb was 2-for-4 with three runs and a RBI and Sabrena Barragan and Maia Chaney each had a hit, two runs and two RBI for the Cardinals.
The Cardinals led 8-3 after the first inning and scored three runs in the second, two runs in the third and four runs in the fourth to secure the win in five innings.
Winlock (9-4, 6-4) travels to Toutle Lake on Saturday at 3 p.m. for a C2BL doubleheader.
Toledo Takes Two From Kalama
TOLEDO — It was a pleasant homecoming for the Cheesetown nine on Monday as they swept Kalama 18-0 and 18-2 in a Central 2B League softball doubleheader.
Toledo scored eight runs in the first inning and 10 runs in the second inning of the first contest in order to push the game into mercy-rule territory. After Toledo spun another shutout inning the game was called off in favor of a fresh start.
The second go round was much like the first except that it took four innings to decide the outcome.
Toledo scored three runs in each of the first two innings before plating six runs in both the third and fourth frames. Kalama scored two runs in the top of the fourth but with only two hits and five errors in the game, it was too little too late.
Paycen Hoiseck and Kendra Coverdell earned the wins in the circle for Toledo. Coverdell tallied three strikeouts in the second game while Hoiseck had just one punchout in the first contest. That left plenty of balls in play for a Toledo defense that committed just one error on the day.
“We were making our plays,” said Toledo coach Ashley Gieseke. “Everybody just did what they were supposed to do. Everybody did good work today.”
In Game 1, Jessica Hull was 3-for-3 and Brooke Beecroft added a triple. In the second contest Haleigh Holmes was 4-for-4 while Kyleigh Holmes was 3-for-4. Coverdell added a pair of hits to help her own cause.
Toledo (6-5 league) will play a league doubleheader at Wahkiakum on Saturday.
