BASEBALL: Port Angeles slams door on Kingston

PORT ANGELES — Ethan Flodstrom had a three-run double and pitcher Dane Bradow shut down Kingston over the final three innings as Port Angeles baseball won 8-3, climbing into third place all alone in the Olympic League 2A Division.

“The bats really came alive tonight which was great to see, lots of heroes at the dish for us and it was great to finally see a bunch of hits strung together,” said coach Karl Myers.

“After Saturday’s [road loss], it was great to see us execute tonight, we had a successful squeeze play and a number of great two strike at-bats,” Myers said. “The guys really played as a unit and had phenomenal energy all night long. This has been and continues to be a fun group to coach.”

Myers said starting pitcher Colton McGuffey didn’t have his best stuff in Monday’s game, giving up three runs and seven hits in four innings, but that he kept grinding and kept the Riders in the game. Bradow came in and slammed the door on Kingston with three scoreless innings of relief, striking out four and walking none.

“A guy who’s performance might go unnoticed was Noah McGoff. He went 1-4 on the night but he hit the ball hard and moved guys over when needed and played great defense including a diving play in foul territory and a great play on a slow roller,” Myers said.

“In all, it was a great team win, the guys fought for each other and played with incredible energy to kick off a huge week for us.”

Port Angeles (4-2, 6-4) next plays at 4:15 p.m. Friday against second-place Olympic at Volunteer Field.
