PILOT ROCK 11, KNAPPA 1 (5 innings) — At Pilot Rock, facing a young Loggers team, Pilot Rock coach Darin Fitzpatrick was able to get all 13 of his players into the game after the Rockets took a 5-0 lead in the first inning and never struggled in a non-league win on Monday. Sara Weinke hit a double and had three RBIs, and Jacey Wilson and Rhyanne Oates each had two RBIs. Tehya Ostrom pitched the fist four innings and drove in a run to get the win, and struck out six while walking none and allowing no hits. Brielle Howland gave up just one hit and struck out two in two innings of relief. The Rockets (4-1) were coming off a 13-2 win in five innings over Enterprise on Saturday in which Howland, a freshman, tossed a complete game allowing only four hits. She got lots of support as Weinke went 2 for 3 with a home run, Wilson (3 for 4) and Bekah Roe (2 for 3) added two runs and two RBIs each, and Howland went 2 for 3 with a double. Earlier on Saturday, Pilot Rock was up 18-2 in the second inning against Weston-McEwen when the game was called due to rain. They plan to make up that game later in the season, but no date has been set.

CLATSKANIE 32, UMATILLA 0 — At Umatilla, the Tigers out-hit the Vikings 21-2 for a non-league win on Monday. Charlene Alvarez and Christy Macias made sure the Vikings (1-5) weren’t no-hit, and coach Kylee Lete said Clatskanie (2-0) was simply a much more skilled team than her group of mostly second- year players. “They hit the ball well, they had pretty good pitching and they executed well on the base paths,” she said of the Tigers. “We know the things we need to work on and a big part of it is confidence. It’s difficult because not only are the girls trying to learn the basics of the sport, they’re trying to learn how to be competitive in a game and doing it at the same time.” Clatskanie scored six runs in the first and 10 in the second to pull away early. UP NEXT Umatilla plays at Heppner for a non-league game on Tuesday, April 4 at 4:30 p.m. it’s a little disappointing,” Hawkins said. “We work on hitting the ball up the middle every day, and in the first game our first two guys did it and then we never did it again. We tried to do too much, put too many balls in the air, didn’t play good defense and our pitchers were behind constantly. “I wish we had scored the 13 the first game, because after the break you want to be champing at the bit and it didn’t happen today, but I’ll take a split, especially with how it ended.” In Game 2, Hermiston got a much better effort from its pitchers as Brylee Dufloth started and Wyatt Noland finished it. Dufloth allowed four hits, five runs (four earned) and walked two in four innings, while Noland gave up one run and two hits in three innings to get the win. “The guys that threw today, it’s their first time on the bump this season and in varsity baseball,” Hawkins said of his pitchers. “Nerves were there for everyone I think and it was evident ... but it’s about getting quality starts, throwing strikes and letting our defense play and the second game we did a better job of it.” After having just one hit through the first three innings of Game 2, Hermiston got the bats going in the fourth inning. A two-out walk from Cole Campbell and a hit-by- pitch from Tolan allowed Gritz to hit an RBI single into left for the Dawgs’ first run and then Kaden Caldwell followed with a two-RBI single into right field to cut the lead to 5-3. Mountain View added one run in the top of the fifth, and then Hermiston got the run back in its half of the fifth and added another run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly from Gritz to make it 6-5. Then in the seventh, Noland tied the game with a RBI triple that he blasted over the right fielder’s head to bring in Kody Moss. Camp- bell then was hit with a pitch Staff photo by E.J. Harris Staff photo by E.J. Harris Mountian View’s (4) dives back to first base as Hermis- ton’s Kody Moss makes the tag Monday in Hermiston. and after two consecutive balls, Tolan was intentionally walked and the rest is history. “It says a lot about our kids when you don’t play well the first game, come out again get down 5-0 and we just chip away and keep going,” Hawkins said. “I’m glad the boys responded. It means a lot as a coach because I put it on them between games and I told them this wasn’t Bulldog baseball but they responded and I’m pretty happy.” UP NEXT Hermiston heads to Keizer this weekend to take part in the Volcanoe Spring Break Tournament, and will play Friday against Cleve- land at 11:30 a.m. and then against Summit at 2 p.m. ——— Game 1 R H E MTV 202 324 — 13 10 3 HHS 100 001 — 2 4 6 WP — J.

WALLA WALLA (WA) 11, PENDLETON 1 — At Walla Walla, Washington, the Pendleton Buckaroos continued their early-season struggles on the mound in an 11-1 loss to Walla Walla on Saturday.
