What started out as a pitcher’s duel during the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader between Lyle-Wishram-Klickitat and Dayton-Waitsburg quickly went south for the Cougars after star pitcher Troy Spino exited the game.
After Spino exited the game after four strong innings on the mound, Dayton struck for nine runs in the top half of the fifth and shut down the Cougar’s bats in the bottom of the inning to hang on for the 10-0 win in five innings.
