MENLO— In what can be described as a Jekyll and Hyde doubleheader between the two fo the top teams in the 2B section, Pe Ell/Willapa Valley rebounded from being shut out in game one to hand top-ranked Napavine its first loss of the season.

PWV’s powerful offense was stymied by Napavine ace Abbigal Music, who limited the Titans to just two hits while striking out 10 in a 3-0 win.

“(Napavine) played a flawless game in tthe first game,” Titans head coach Ken Olson said. “We couldn’t get over the hump with (Music).”

In the nightcap, PWV (13-2 overall, 12-2 Central 2B) was in danger of being mercy-ruled after falling behind 10-0 in the fourth inning. But the Titans finally got to Music and the Tigers’ pitching staff, erupting for 14 runs in the frame to take the lead.

PWV outscored Napavine 22-3 over the final three innings and won the game when Grace Hodel singled in Annika Mason for a 22-12 walk-off, mercy-rule victory — the first defeat of the season for the Tigers (12-1, 11-1).

“It just snowballed on ‘em,” Olson said of his team’s prodigous 14-run fourth. “Our momentum just kept going and we were finally getting to them.”

Britany Patrick went 3-for-4 with four RBI, including a two-run home run in the sixth inning that Olson described as “a dagger” to any Napavine comeback hopes.

Sisters Katie and Kameron Adkins and Sid Pollard also collected three hits in the game and Jeorgi Ritzman went 2-for-3 with two doubles and four RBI for the Titans.

Rochester 2, Aberdeen 1

ROCHESTER — The Warriors scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to earn a come-from-behind victory over the Bobcats, spoiling a solid pitching performance from Aberdeen’s Jalyn McDaniel in the process.

Rochester pitcher Delany Glazer was just as good, holding the Bobcats to just one run on five hits through seven innings.

“We have to hit the ball to win. We couldn’t hit the ball when we needed to,” Aberdeen head coach Scott Wilson said of the tough loss. “We have to score more than one run to win.”

Aberdeen centerfielder Angela Jones made a highlight-reel catch at the wall that turned into a double play for the Bobcats.

Jones and teammate Allye Troseth each belted doubles for Aberdeen, with Troseth being the only Bobcat with a multi-hit game.

Hoquiam sweeps Forks

Hoquiam baseball bats came alive in a makeup doubleheader against Forks on Monday as the Grizzlies swept the Spartans, 7-3 and 14-5.

Grizzlies starter Kyle Larsen kept the Forks bats quiet in his six innings of work, allowing one earned run in the opener.

Larsen got plenty of run support. Teammate Garrett Bradley came through with some quality plate appearances as he scored two runs on a walk and a base hit.

The Grizzlies’ three-run rally in the sixth helped put the game out of reach.

Hoquiam’s momentum carried through to the second game, as the Grizzlies didn’t waste any time putting up a crooked number.

Hoquiam put up three runs in the first inning of the game and accumulated 17 hits total in the contest.

Hoquiam head coach Steve Jump knows it won’t be easy playing a high number of games in a short time span, but said this upcoming stretch of the schedule will help the team find a rhythm at the plate.

“This is probably the best we’ve hit all season,” he said. “ The downside of having two-and-a-half weeks off is that we have eight games over the next couple of weeks, but having that many games will help us get into a groove.”

Jackson Folkers and Andrew Anderson who had three hits apiece for the Grizzlies.

Hoquiam (6-1, 9-3-1) will be back in action against Tenino on Tuesday.
