Senior pitcher Ray Barlow leads the Tigers to 4-0 win

HILLSBORO — The Tigard High School baseball team combined a strong pitching performance with an opportunistic offensive attack.

And the Tigers got a key win to show for it.

Tigard, getting a shutout pitching outing from senior Ray Barlow, came away with a 4-0 win over Century in a Pacific Conference game played Tuesday at Hillsboro Ballpark.

With the victory, the Tigers improved to 4-3 in Pacific Conference games (7-8 overall), keeping Tigard in third place in the conference standings. Century fell to 3-4 in conference play and to 9-7 on the season with the setback.

Barlow, in getting the win in Tuesday’s game, struck out eight batters while scattering six hits, all singles.

“He’s given us three pretty good outings, now,” Tigard coach Tom Campbell said.

The Tigers turned four hits into a three-run third inning to jump out to the lead in the contest. Senior Jesse Bye got things started with a leadoff double. With one out in the frame, senior Shane Rasor, junior Tyler Walker and junior Brady McGetrick had consecutive singles.

Walker drove in two runs with his hit and McGetrick had the other RBI in the inning.

Tigard added another run in the fifth inning. Senior Bruin Campbell hit a one-out single, stole second base and then scored on a single by Rasor.

Prior to the win over Century, the Tigers split a two-game conference series with Hillsboro.

On April 16, Tigard got a 12-11 win over the Spartans in a game played at Hare Field.

Rasor had a big day for the Tigers in that victory. He had three hits, four runs scored, an RBI and five stolen bases. Bruin Campbell had a hit, two runs scored and two stolen bases. Senior Jake Biglow went 2 for 5 with two RBIs. Junior Jarod Gogal went 3 for 4 with an RBI and McGetrick stole three bases.

Tigard, as a team, had 13 stolen bases in the win.

Tiger junior J.T. Greenough, pitching in relief, picked up his first varsity win.

Last Thursday, Tigard was edged 9-8 by Hillsboro in a game played at Tigard High School.

Bruin Campbell went 3 for 3 at the plate with three runs scored and four stolen bases in that game.

Rasor went 3 for 4 with two runs scored, an RBI and two stolen bases. Gogal went 2 for 3 with a run scored and Walker drove in three runs.

Tigard was scheduled to hose Century in a conference game on Wednesday. Results of that game weren’t available when The Times went to press.

The Tigers will be back in action Friday when they finish their three-game series with Century with a 4:30 p.m. contest at Hillsboro Ballpark. On Tuesday, Tigard will be home to play Forest Grove at 4:30 p.m. in the first game of a three-game series.
