Cougar bats explode for 24 runs as LWK evens record at 4-4


A pair of lop-sided games left Lyle-Wishram-Klickitat’s baseball team with a split last week, losing to Sherman County 19-4 and defeating Hood River C squad 24-8.

The Cougars had a great start at Moro, putting four runs on the board, but it went downhill from there.

“Our kids showed up thinking it would be 70 degrees,” said Coach Joe Bales. Instead, Bales said the wind chill was about 35 degrees and it really cooled off the Cougar bats. Bales used four pitchers to get through the five-inning game.

The weather was just a bit nicer on Thursday at Hood River and the Cougars again got off to a strong start, scoring six in the first and holding Hood River’s freshmen to one big inning. Zack Miller started the game and was relieved in the third inning by Troy Spino, seeing his first action of the year for LWK. Ricky Weddle drove in four runs and leadoff hitter, Chad Hester was 5-7 with three RBI and four runs scored. Kurtis Billette and Riley Mills were each 3-6 in the game.

The win evened the Cougars’ record at 4-4 as they went on spring break this week. They will host Hood River C squad for a return single game in Lyle on April 10, at 4:30 p.m.
