Hyaks 26, Wildcats 20
WESTPORT — Cora Pope’s grand slam highlighted a 13-run seventh inning as North Beach stormed from behind to knock off Ocosta in a Pacific League opener on Monday at Westport.
Ocosta led 11-0 at the end of the second inning and took a 20-13 advantage into the seventh.
Mikayla Sunde and Kallee Orton each drove in four runs for the Wildcats. This was the Wildcats’ first complete game of the season.
“We were down early and did not give up, going all the way to the seventh inning,” said Hyak head coach Maynard Reed. “We kept on plugging away until we got our timely home run and key hits in the seventh.”
Reed credited pitcher Madi Schreiber for coming in in the second inning and holding off the Wildcats.
Ocosta pitchers issued 19 walks.
“We played hard, we made fewer errors,” Ocosta coach Jason Barnum said. “Walks and hit batters killed us.”
Today, North Beach will host Forks in a doubleheader. Ocosta will travel to Montesano on Friday to play the Bulldogs junior varsity.

Eagles 20, Mountaineers 0
ELMA — Cashing in on a procession of walks, Elma strolled past Rainier in an Evergreen 1A League game Monday at Eagle Field.
Originally scheduled for Tuesday, the contest was moved up 24 hours due to a more favorable weather forecast.
The Eagles (1-1) cashed in on 16 walks to do most of their damage. They mustered a relatively modest eight hits — three by Nick Camenzind.
“It was tough to hit the ball because they didn’t throw all that many strikes,” Elma coach Scott Rowland said.
Four Elma pitchers, meanwhile, combined on a one-hitter.
The Eagles will travel to Seaside, Ore., this weekend for a mini-tournament. They face Seaside at 11 a.m. Friday and Roosevelt, Ore., at 2 p.m. Saturday.

MATLOCK — Richy Carlile knocked out three hits, including an inside-the-park homer, as Lake Quinault spoiled Mary M. Knight’s return to baseball in a non-league game Monday at Matlock.
This was Knight’s first baseball game since 1988.
Tyler Colton added three hits and two RBIs for the Elks, who blew the game open with 18 runs in the third and fourth innings.
“Mary M. Knight has a lot of heart. They have competitive kids and you’ve got to give them credit for that,” Quinault coach Keith Samplawski said. “Right now, they’re struggling to get control of their pitching. It took us a couple of innings to get going but I was happy with the way the majority of the kids hit the ball.”
He cited Colton and Dylan Dorhofer for hitting.
The Elks (1-0) are scheduled to host Wishkah on Wednesday.

Gary Ortivez drove in two runs for the Acorns.
Wishkah’s lone run came in the first inning. Jace Anderson singled and scored from third on Austin Barber’s fielder’s choice grounder.
First-year Logger coach Travis Warren was generally upbeat with his team’s performance.
“I’ve heard Oakville is really stiff competition,” Warren said. “It was actually a good game for the first three innings.”

Tigers 4, Bobcats 2
CENTRALIA — Sweeping the singles, Centralia spoiled Aberdeen’s season opener in an Evergreen 2A Conference match Monday at Centralia.
The Bobcats registered a pair of tightly contested doubles wins, as the teams of Rachael Schermer-Ali Morris and Jamie Peterson-Alex Schultz each prevailed in three sets.
“Those two doubles matches were the first on court and the last two matches off-court,” Bobcat coach Ashley Kohlmeier reported. “They were super-intense, hard-fought and pretty exciting to watch.
“Given the fact we’ve been outside only twice all year, I was really impressed with how our girls did today,” she added.
The Bobcats (0-1) are scheduled to host Black Hills today and Tumwater on Wednesday.

TUCSON, Ariz. — Grays Harbor College lost its final four games on a road trip to Tucson last weekend.
The Chokers fell to Western Arizona, 5-0, to Douglas in 10 innings, 4-3, to Eastern Arizona, 16-6, and again to Douglas, 17-10. The latter game was called after six innings when the sprinkler system came on.
Grays Harbor’s Ryan Snyder did not allow an earned run in an eight-inning stint against Douglas. The Arizona club wound up scoring the winning run in the 10th on a two-base error.
“Overall, I was pleased with how we competed against some good teams,” Grays Harbor coach Curtis Eccles said. “Our record does not indicate how competitive this team really is. We have good pitching and it will only improve with more time on the mound. We need to support our pitchers by having smarter at bats and, with time and practice, that will come.”
Further details on the final four games will be reported in Wednesday’s Daily World.
