SPORTS: Klahowya holds off Port Townsend; other baseball reports

Peninsula Daily News

SILVERDALE — Port Townsend became the latest baseball team to fall victim to the surprisingly strong Klahowya Eagles with a 10-2 loss Tuesday.

The Redskins’ loss comes on the heels of two consecutive one-run setbacks, 5-4 to Bremerton on Monday and 3-2 at Coupeville on Saturday.

Klahowya (5-2) now stands at 5-0 in the Olympic League standings.

Dylan Keefer pitched six innings to record the win for the Eagles, and he also was 2 for 3 at the plate with an RBI.

Port Townsend’s Sean Dwyer was a perfect 3 for 3 at the plate, driving in a run and scoring another.

Cody Russell scored a run and Emmett Davis had an RBI.

The Redskins (0-5) are in the middle of an 11-day stretch in which they play seven games. They next host Olympic (1-3, 1-5) on Friday.

Bremerton 5,
Port Townsend 4

PORT TOWNSEND — In their first home game of the season, the Redskins mounted a seventh-inning rally that fell just short Monday afternoon.

Trailing 5-1 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, Dillon Ralls reached base, and then advanced to third on Sean Dwyer’s double in the gap.

Davis brought both home with a 2-run single to cut the Knights’ lead to 5-3.

After a hit by James Delagarza, Davis crossed home plate on an infield hit by Devon Courtney.

The Redskins had the bases loaded with one out, but were unable to capitalize.

“We really battled back and showed a lot of character against a very good Bremerton team,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said.

“We have to hang in there and keep getting pitching and defense . . . James [Delagarza] . . . gave us a very quality outing.

“We just have to keep grinding and playing good baseball.”

Delagarza pitched a complete game six-hitter.

In the fifth inning, Davis blasted a home run that Webster estimates traveled 340 feet.

“It was nice to see Emmett get going, and hopefully that will spark us up,” Webster said.

Webster named freshman second baseman Joe Hoffman the defensive player of the game.

Coupeville 3,
Port Townsend 2

COUPEVILLE — Cody Russell fanned nine Wolves batters and allowed just five hits in 6 1/3 innings, but Coupeville came out on top Saturday with two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Port Townsend tied the score at 1-1 when Devon Courtney scored when Coupeville overthrew first base trying to turn a double play.

In the top of the seventh, Jacob King singled, stole second base and then scored on a single by Courtney that gave the Redskins a 2-1 lead going into the final frame, and setting up the Wolves game-winning rally.

“We got great pitching From Cody and our team defense was stellar,” Port Townsend coach Tom Webster said.

“We played really well but we have to find a way to score more runs.

“We have to dig in and finish games; we know we can do it if we stay fundamentally sound on offense and defense.”

Infielder Dillon Ralls, who made a diving stop at third base, was named defensive player of the game by Webster.

Michael Konopaski relieved Jangula in the seventh and recorded the final two outs.
