AREA SPORTS BRIEFS: Corvallis beats Lefties in slugfest; Wilder wins over Prep and more

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Despite getting 16 hits and another home run from Dalton Harum, the Lefties couldn’t keep up with the Corvallis Knights in an 11-8 road loss.

Five different Lefties had multiple hits in Friday’s loss and the Lefties outhit Corvallis 16-12, but the Corvallis pitchers didn’t walk a single runner. Lefties’ pitchers couldn’t stop the Knights from scoring as they tallied four runs in the second and three runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

Harum went 3 for 5 with three runs scored and an RBI. Jason Dicochea was 3 for 4 and Trevor Rosenberg 2 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Evan Pace was 2 for 5 with a run scored and two RBIs, while Kyle Schimpf was 2 for 5 with an RBI.

Baxter Halligan took the loss, giving up seven earned runs in five innings. Relievers Thomas Ruwe and Tyler Tan did their best to keep the Lefties in it, giving up just one earned run over the last three innings, but the Lefties couldn’t overcome an 11-5 deficit after six innings.

The Lefties beat Highline 9-6 Thursday in an exhibition game.

The Lefties played Saturday after press deadline and play again at 3 p.m. today in a getaway game before the West Coast League’s All-Star Game, which will be held Tuesday in Port Angeles.

Notes: With his 3 for 5 game, Harum is now third in the West Coast League with a .354 batting average. His home run, his seventh of the season, puts him in second place in the WCL. Dicochea’s 3 for 4 day left him with a batting average of .392, which would be leading the league if he had enough at-bats to qualify.
