Saturday Prep Roundup: Wolfpack devours Owls in inaugural baseball outing


Wolfpack 14, Owls 0 (5)

AMANDA PARK — A four-man pitching staff — Gavin Baltzell, Jace Anderson, Jeff Diggle and Kobe Kalama — held visiting Mary M. Knight to just one hit to mark Twin Valley’s inaugural game and victory at Lake Quinault High School on Saturday.

Anderson drove in four runs in the Wolfpack’s pivotal 12-run third inning — a two-run single and a two-run double. Baltzell, the starter, picked up the win on the mound, striking out six and walking two.

“I thought this was a good game for us to start with,” Twin Valley head coach Keith Samplawski said. “The kids were focused, into the game. You can see a lot of potential. As the season goes on, you’ll see us get better.”

Dylan Lines was credited with Twin Valley’s first-ever hit, a single in the third inning.

Mary M. Knight’s Andrew Lofgren snapped the no-hitter bid with a line-drive single to left field in the fourth inning.

Samplawski cited Julio Silva for his work behind the plate to start the game and Nathan Frank for his first career hit in his first-ever at-bat.

On Monday, Twin Valley will take on Montesano’s junior varsity team at Wishkah High School.
