Grangeville’s Shane Wood fields a grounder and books a putout from his spot over at third base.
As of Wednesday, April 13, 2016
GRANGEVILLE The Bulldogs caught Clearwater Valley on a day the Rams would rather forget, as Grangeville’s starting pitcher Layton Harris worked seven solid innings without allowing much contact to the Rams, who booted away five errors behind Keiran Owens.
The bottom of Grangeville’s order delivered a handful of crushing hits as the Bulldogs opened up a 4-0 lead with a three-run second in what became a 7-0 victory April 6.
Shane Wood delivered two RBI out of the fifth spot, and hits by Trent Hunter, Jon Chamorro and Matt Ruhnke gave GHS the edge.
CV did not hit well.
“After about a two and a half week hiatus from all things baseball due to weather and spring break, we finally got to play,” Rams coach Josh Bradley said. “Unfortunately, the long lapse between games really showed and we struggled at the plate.”
Harris struck out 11 and benefitted from sharp play on a couple of line drives.
Grangeville splits CIL set
GRANGEVILLE — Last Saturday, a doubleheader with St. Maries swung hard in Grangeville’s favor with an 11-run sixth, by which the Bulldogs mercy-ruled the Lumberjacks 15-5. St. Maries got even for that with a 10-1 rout of the Bulldogs in the late game.
Grangeville’s pitching held up during the first game, with Layton Harris and Chase Atkison working on the hill but St. Maries dominated the early innings of the second contest.
Up next, Grangeville (3-6, 1-1 Central Idaho League) has away games at Lewiston against Coeur d’Alene on Thursday, at Orofino on Friday and at Clearwater Valley next Monday before the next home game. GHS is to host Prairie at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 19.
Orofino whacks Rams 9-1
OROFINO — Cody Morrow pitched seven innings against the Maniacs’ murderer’s row last Saturday, as the OHS heavies smacked five extra-base hits including triples by Kolby Brink and James Bolling. Orofino won it 9-1.
On the Rams’ side of the ledger, there were two hits — one apiece by Morrow and Dawson Fisher.
Up next, CV is to host Genesee for a double-header April 14.
