    GRANTS PASS 4-3, ASHLAND 1-2 — At Ashland, Ashland received two outstanding pitching performances by Kyle Milgram and Caleb Bell but couldn't take advantage as Grants Pass swept an Area 4 doubleheader at North Mountain Park.
    Milgram held the Diggers to one earned run on five hits while striking out four in six solid innings, but took the loss in Game 1 thanks in part to a dropped fly ball in the sixth. The miscue allowed the go-ahead run plus an insurance run to score for Grants Pass, and another came home on a passed ball.
    Chris D'Amico picked up the win for the Diggers after limiting Ashland to one run on four hits in 61/3 innings.
    In Game 2, Bell held the Diggers to three runs on five hits while striking out four but didn't get much run support as Ashland fell to 7-13 overall, 2-8 in Area 4.
    Grants Pass pitcher Brennen Lauffenburger held the Pilots to two runs on six hits in a complete-game effort.
    Andrew Sherrier's RBI single scored for Grants Pass what proved to be the winning run in the top of the fourth.
    For Ashland, Bell was 2-for-4. Also for the Pilots, Jake Hansen was 2-for-2 on the day with a double in the second game.
