Mazama throttles Chieftains in twin bill

Mazama throttles Chieftains in twin bill

ROGUE RIVER-- Despite registering just one Skyline Conference victory this season, the Rogue River High baseball team had thrown a scare into each of its league opponents.

Hard-hitting Mazama made quick work of the Chieftains Friday, however, as the Vikings rolled to 11-0 and 14-2 victories. Each game went only five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Chris Stone fired a one-hit shutout in the opening game, and Lance Wagner tossed a four-hitter in the nightcap for Mazama.

I think they're the best team in the Skyline, Rogue River coach John Marvel said of the Vikings. They've got good pitching, and they hit the ball a ton.

Jake Nelson hit a two-run homer and his brother Jayson clubbed an RBI triple to pace Mazama's 10-hit attack in the opener.

Mazama came back with 12 hits in Game 2.

Rogue River, now 1-9 in conference play and 2-10 overall, committed 12 errors in the two games.

ROGUE RIVER 4-7, MAZAMA 3-8--Jeri Mishler's RBI single tied the game in the bottom of the seventh inning and then Shaye Eybanks scored on an error as Mazama salvaged a split with Rogue River in a Skyline Conference twin bill.

In the opening game, Rogue River pushed across two runs in the top of the sixth to overcome a 3-2 deficit and get the win. Alison Bailey stole home for the winning run.
