Diamondbacks split pair with Pendleton


Baker City Herald

The Team Rudi Diamondbacks American Legion baseball team ran its record to 14-3 with a doubleheader split against Pendleton Wednesday.

Pendleton won the opener 4-3. The Diamondbacks took the nightcap, 19-6.

Cole Brown took the loss in the opener, surrendering six hits and seven walks in seven innings.

The Diamondbacks scored two runs in the first inning on a double by Grant Marcum and a run-scoring single by Ty Everson. Jon Woolard then plated Everson with a base hit.

Team Rudi added a run in the third when Marcum walked, stole second, went to third on a passed ball, then scored on a fielder's choice off the bat of Brown.

But that was the last run for the Diamondbacks in the opener.

"We had several opportunities to score, but we didn't swing the bat very well," said coach Dan Blankenship. "That's not typical of us."

His squad found their hitting stroke in the second game, scoring nine runs in the first inning alone.

Marcum had two hits and 3 RBIs in the first inning, while Brown, Everson and Woolard drove in one run apiece. Brandon Dolby drove in two runs in the first inning.

The Diamondbacks added a run in the second and scored again in the fourth when Woolard hit a solo home run.

They scored eight runs in the fifth inning to seal the victory. On the game, Everson finished with three hits and four RBIs and Trace Richardson smacked two hits and drove in a pair. Woolard drove in four runs with his three hits.

Dolby got the win, pitching four innings. He had relief help from Coleman Lay and Dekker Smith.

Over the Fourth of July weekend, the Diamondbacks will be one of 12 teams to play in the renamed Firecracker Invitational tournament in Boise.
