Bulldogs 7, Beavers 0

MONTESANO — Matt Plato’s bases-clearing double paced a six-run fifth inning that helped Montesano down Tenino in an Evergreen 1A League game Tuesday at Vessey Field.

Nate Kloempken pitched a four-hitter, striking out nine, for the Bulldogs (5-0, 5-2)

Kloempken was clinging to a 1-0 lead until his teammates erupted in the fifth. Evan Bates’ squeeze bunt drove in the first run. Plato followed with a three-run double and Noah Quinn added an RBI single in that inning.

“Their pitcher pitched soft and (we) had a hard time adjusting,” Monte coach Mike Osgood said. “They finally figured him out.”

Weather permitting, the same two teams are scheduled to square off again today at Tenino.

Wildcats 5, Grizzly JV 3

WESTPORT — A four-run sixth inning gave Ocosta a come-from-behind victory over the Hoquiam junior varsity on Thursday at GAR Park.

The Wildcats (9-3) trailed 3-1 entering the sixth. After three walks loaded the bases, Hunter Hatton delivered a two-run double to tie it.

Sam Quinby followed with an RBI single. Jose Sevilla’s infield out drove in the final run.

“For some reason, we score most of our runs in the later innings,” Ocosta coach Mike Allton said. “It’s bizarre, but that’s been the trend this year.”

Allton cited the pitching of Kobe Beck, Brandon Harnden and Zach Allton, who combined on a two-hitter.

The Wildcats face Pe Ell-Willapa Valley in a doubleheader Friday at Pe Ell.

Cody Williams started for Elma and took the loss in two innings of work, striking out three and walking two. Williams gave up six runs, but only one of them was earned due to the errors.

SOFTBALL

Grizzlies 13, Beavers 0

At Gable Park, Hoquiam’s offense got its bats going and runners moving, while putting pressure on Tenino’s defense in an Evergreen 1A League win on Tuesday.

The Grizzlies used six hits and four stolen bases, while Tenino committed four errors, to score nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. The big frame was enough to get to the 10-run mercy rule in the fifth inning.

Senior Emma Skinner, who moved up to the lead-off spot in the lineup, led Hoquiam (1-2, 1-4) with four hits — two bunt singles and two infield singles — two stolen bases and four runs scored.

“We had a little bit of everything in the fourth,” HHS head coach Keith Reynvaan said. “Emma had a pretty good night’s work. She hit leadoff for the first time and was quite a spark plug for us.”

English Hyde finished with a two-hit shutout, striking out nine and walking two in the circle. Reynvaan also cited Kylie Bagwell and Jenna Doll for their hits off the bench in the fourth.

On Thursday, Hoquiam is scheduled for a doubleheader at Forks.

The Eagles scored in every inning in a contest interrupted by a couple of rain delays.

“Quin was able to pitch with a wet ball a little better than they did,” Elma coach Roger Elliott said. “We didn’t commit any errors and were able to hit the ball when we needed to.”

Kohlby Sayler had three hits, including a triple, and Corrina Torres added a double and single for the Eagles (3-1, 5-1).

The Eagles travel to Tenino on Tuesday.

The Warriors capitalized on four Bobcat errors.

“You’ve got to make plays to win games,” Aberdeen coach Scott Wilson summarized. “Jayln McDaniel threw a great game. We’ve got to help her out on defense.”

Sierra Hammond, who had two hits for Aberdeen, was also cited for her defensive play. Wilson also praised the defense of Allie Troseth and Stephanie Stopsen.

The Bobcats (1-2, 1-3) are scheduled to travel to Tumwater today.
