Ocosta 15, Life Christian 0

Ocosta took advantage of a suspect defense and porous Life Academy pitching in earning a three-inning 15-0 victory in the opener of Monday’s twin bill.

Ocosta (10-1 overall, 9-1 Pacific 2B) capitalized on four Eagles errors and seven walks to jump out to a 13-0 lead after scoring 10 runs in the second inning.

The Wildcats completed the mercy-rule victory an inning later when Omar Luque singled home Colby Scheuber with the game-ending run.

Harley Figueroa and Dylan Mefford each had multi-hit games for Ocosta. Figueroa also scored three runs and drove in three for the Wildcats.

Cesar Martinez picked up the victory for Ocosta, allowing no hits and no runs in an inning of work.

Ocosta 18, Life Christian 0

Fortunes didn’t fare much better for Life Christian in the nightcap, as Ocosta scored seven runs in the first and nine in the second to pick up an 18-0 victory, sweeping the doubleheader in the process.

Kobe Beck went 3-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and three RBI to lead Ocosta.

The Wildcats also benefited from nine free passes and three Eagles errors in the contest.

Just six of Ocosta’s 18 runs were earned in the three-inning victory.

Despite not getting much work in after a long layoff, Ocosta head coach Mike Allton was pleased with what he saw, particularly on the mound.

“Every one of our pitchers was fairly sharp,” he said, adding he would have liked to see his pitching staff get more innings under its belt. “For having a week-and-a-half off, we were throwing strikes. … It’s just unfortunate we could only go six innings. I wanted to work those guys.”

Kobe Beck continued his hot hitting in the nightcap, going 3-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and three RBI for the Wildcats.

Cole Hatton went 1-2 with a double and three RBI for an Ocosta team that had seven different players record a hit in the game.

Colby Scheuber earned the win, allowing no runs and no hits in two innings of work.

Jose Sevilla pitched a scoreless third for the Wildcats, striking out the side in the process.

Life Christian moves to 0-12 overall, 0-10 in the 2B Pacific League this season.

Ocosta takes on Naselle at 4 p.m. on Friday in Westport.

Grays Harbor 1, Club America Nido Aguila 1

The Grays Harbor Gulls semi-pro club soccer team opened its second season with a 1-1 tie against Club America Nido Aguila (Seattle) on Saturday at Stewart Field in Aberdeen.

Club America controlled possession in the first half and scored in the 15th minute on a deflected shot in front of the net.

Club America nearly took a 2-0 lead on a shot off a free kick in the 67th minute, but Gulls goalkeeper Rapha Jimenez sprawled to his left to make the save and keep Grays Harbor’s deficit at 1-0.

With approximately 10 minutes left to play, Grays Harbor’s Aaron Arias played the ball through to Alex Pugadelarosa, who beat his defender, drove through an attempted tackle and advanced to the left corner of the penalty area.

Pugadelarosa then sent a cross into the box where Juan Oropeza did the rest, curling a left-footed shot in the back of the net to tie the game at 1-1.

Oropeza earned Man of the Match honors for his performance.

The Gulls host FC International at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
