Molalla snags baseball win
The Molalla High baseball team halted a five-game losing streak May 10 with a 12-2 win over Corbett.
The Indians got a solid pitching performance from a trio of pitchers, as well as good work in the field from its defense.
The threesome of Alex Hills, Caden Raihala and Will Mason stymied the Corbett offense for most of the game. Hills pitched three innings and allowed only one earned run while striking out five and issuing two walks. Raihala went three innings, struck out two and allowed a single earned run, while Mason pitched an inning and had one strikeout and one walk.
"They were backed by great defense, only two team errors, and that paved the way for the bats to give Alex Hill the (pitching) win," coach Gary Miller said.
The offense was led by Caden Alexander and Evan McEachran, both of whom had a pair of hits in the contest. Robert O'Hara and Tucker Ward each had 2 RBIs, Zach Clinton had a hit and RBI as well. Alexander, Theo Nunn, Mike Stephens and Isaac Klementis each scored two runs. The Indians did some damage on the base paths as well, with Alexander stealing three bases and Klementis and Ward adding a pair of thefts.
"All-in-all, it was a total team effort," Miller said. "Everyone was able to see a little action and contributed in some way."
