Hyaks 17, Navigators 4
OCEAN SHORES — Winning pitcher Josh Takagi helped his own cause with three doubles and five RBIs as North Beach emphatically avenged an earlier loss to Northwest Christian in a Pacific League game Monday at North Bay Park.
The Hyaks (5-1, 6-4) scored in each of the first four innings in closing out the game via the 10-run mercy rule.
Takagi ripped two-run doubles in the second and third innings and added an RBI two-bagger in the fourth. Pedro Gonzales drove in four runs and Joseph Wegner added three RBIs for the Hyaks.
North Beach coach Rob Schreiber, whose team has won five straight league contests following an 8-2 loss at Northwest Christian, said his team has become more aggressive at the plate.
“What we’ve been doing is attacking the ball in 2-0, 3-1 counts,” Schreiber said. “Today it was great. And good baserunning again today.”
The Hyaks are scheduled to host the Montesano junior varsity today.

Cougars 4, Bobcats 1
Christian Rohrer pitched a three-hitter as Capital topped Aberdeen in an Evergreen 2A Conference game Monday at Pioneer Park’s Ken Waite Field.
Bobcat pitchers Josh Collett and Deon Schlesser combined on a two-hitter. Both hits, by Mitchell Dooley, followed walks and hit batters and combined to produce three runs.
Rohrer, meanwhile, was working on a one-hitter through five innings. Chase Johnson doubled and scored on Schlesser’s single in the sixth, but the Bobcats (3-9, 3-10) were unable to sustain the attack.
“They had a kid who didn’t throw very hard,” AHS coach Shon Schreiber said. “We never made an adjustment, kept popping up or striking out.”
Collett and Schlesser were cited for their pitching.
The Bobcats are scheduled to host River Ridge today.

Comets 8, Wildcats 1
NASELLE — Sam Scrabeck’s three-run double in the sixth inning keyed a late Naselle explosion that sealed a Pacific League victory over Ocosta on Monday at Naselle.
The Wildcats (1-4 in league) mustered six hits, but were unable to score until the seventh. Matthew Clark singled and eventually plated on a wild pitch.
Michael Dewood and Caleb Tackett had two hits each for Ocosta.
“They have a little better hitting and played a little better defense than we did,” Ocosta coach Ben Quinby said. “We looked a lot younger (than them).”
Ocosta is scheduled to face Twin Valley on Wednesday at Lake Quinault.

Wildcats 16, Comets 8
NASELLE — Scoring in all but the second inning, Ocosta took advantage of Naselle’s miscues in the field and walks from the circle to win this Pacific League contest on Monday afternoon.
Courtney Rutzer’s three-run double in the Wildcats’ five-run fifth inning sealed the game. Rutzer finished with three hits and three RBI. Starter Alexa Sweeney picked up the win in 3-plus innings of work, striking out two and walking three.
“It was windy and cold; we started slow, but the girls picked it up,” Ocosta head coach Jason Barnum said. “They were plagued by wals and errors. We took advantage of them, got some key hits.”
On Wednesday, Ocosta (2-2, 4-4) travels to Wishkah for a league contest.

Cougars 7, Bobcats 1
OLYMPIA — A sacrifice fly by Alexxi Timmons in the top of the first inning became Aberdeen’s lone run of the game as Capital scored seven unanswered runs and forced the Bobcats to strand runners in his Evergreen 2A game on Monday.
The Bobcats (3-7, 3-9) stranded eight runners on base, six of them in scoring position. Aberdeen twice loaded the bases with no outs, but stranded the runners without scoring a run. The Bobcats also finished with five errors.
“It is the same thing — we’d get runners on, but not get a key hit; we’d give up a walk or an error and they’d get a ket hit,” AHS head coach Jeff Timmons said. “That’s been the difference. No timely hits and errors got to us again.”
Alexxi Timmons led the Bobcats with two doubles, with Katie Hammonds adding two hits, including a double. Erin Kuhn took the loss in the circle, striking out one and walking one.
Today, Aberdeen hits the road to take on River Ridge.

Wolves 4, Bobcats 1
Rain took away the final singles match of the day, but Black Hills scored enough points to win this Evergreen 2A dual meet over Aberdeen at Sam Benn Courts on Monday.
Ali Morris and McKenzie Martin won their No. 1 doubles match for the Bobcats in straight sets. Kianna Little was leading early in the second set before her match with Virginia Dalietos was called due to rain at 7-5, 1-2.
“Kianna, in her first set, her points were incredibly long and her games were incredibly long,” AHS head coach Ashley Kohlmeier said. “She hustled to every point. She was the epitome of the tennis player I want on my team. She was disappointed not to finish the match.”
On Wednesday, Aberdeen (2-5) travels to Centralia.
