RiverDawgs held scoreless by Humboldt in twin bill sweep

The Southern Oregon RiverDawgs were shut out in their nonleague doubleheader against the Humboldt Crabs on Saturday at Harry & David Field.

In the opener, former Grants Pass High standout Zach Morgan, a right-handed pitcher who now plays for Sacramento State, allowed one hit and two walks and struck out four in five innings to lift Humboldt to an 8-0 victory.

Losing pitcher Tim Sabo gave up seven runs in the first two innings as Humboldt quickly took charge.

In Game 2, Humboldt starter Zach O'Hanen owned a five-hitter with six strikeouts against Southern Oregon (16-19) before the nightcap was called after the sixth inning because of rain. Humboldt won 3-0.

Kyle Forsyth took a no-decision, going five innings and allowing five hits, no runs and no walks with three strikeouts.
