Baseball team goes 0-4

Douglas 3, Sweet Home 0

Game one of a doubleheader

Sweet Home lost a no-hitter 3-0 in the first game of a doubleheader at home on Monday to Douglas.

“We simply couldn’t get anything going offensively,” Coach Dan Tow said. “The game was a pitchers’ duel, and they got the better of us.

“There were 23 strikeouts in the game all together, and we hit a few balls hard but couldn’t muster a hit.”

Defensively, “we got a very good pitching performance from Kyle Pettit today,” Tow said. “And we played error-free defense.”

Greg Sipe pitched in relief. Perron was winning pitcher.

Game two of a doubleheader

The Huskies had four hits and scored three runs, but it wasn’t enough to hold Douglass off. Douglas won the second game 14-3.

“We competed for a few innings and then seemed to shut down in the fourth inning,” Tow said. “We had a few tough breaks early, but we were still in the game.

“By the time the fourth was over though, we kind of took ourselves out of the game. We just need to keep our level of intensity up for seven innings and keep working on improving in all facets of the game.”

Joe Ellis and Adam Matuszak hit doubles. Skyler Bascom had a two-run homerun.

Adam Hummer was losing pitcher. Robby Wallace and Sipe pitched in relief. Winning pitcher was Walton.

Cascade 6, Sweet Home 5

Cascade slipped past the Huskies in the sixth inning on three unearned runs to win 6-5 at Sweet Home on March 23.

“We hit the ball as well as we have all year, and Adam Hummer had a good game on the mound,” Tow said. “But we made some mistakes in the sixth inning that hurt us and allowed them to score three unearned runs.

“We have to continue to work on fundamentals and being more mentally tough, and we’ll win games like this one.”

To help close the sixth inning, “Kyle Pettit made a great diving catch in centerfield,” Tow said.

The Huskies trailed 2-0 after the first inning before scoring five in the second to take a solid lead.

Hummer was losing pitcher. Winning pitcher was Coleman, who pitched in relief for starter Frey.

At bats, Hummer, Chaz Davis and Matuszak each went 2-3. Sipe went 1-3 with a double and RBI. Pettit went 1-4 with two RBIs. Ellis went 1-2.

Sisters 8, Sweet Home 2

On the road, the Huskies lost 8-2 to Sisters on March 21.

“We were a little sloppy tonight,” Tow said. “We didn’t do a very good job of keeping them off the bases, and they run the bases pretty well.

“The top guys in their lineup hurt us, and we didn’t have an answer for that with our own offense.

“We did some good things, but we could have played a better game than we did, I thought.”

Pettit was pitched for Sweet Home. Fitter was winning pitcher.

At bats, Wallace went 1-2 with a double. Trevor Tagle went 1-3 with an RBI.

Kyle Pettit went 1-2. Chaz Davis and Brett Miller each went 1-3. Matuszak went 1-4.
