Baseball Cascade Christian 4, East Jefferson 2 Cascade Christian 6, East Jefferson 4

CHIMACUM — The East Jefferson baseball team had a couple of close losses, 4-2 and 6-4, in a doubleheader this weekend against one of the tougher teams in the Nisqually League in Cascade Christian.

Despite the sweep, coach Ben Lazano said the Rivals are playing well against the good teams in the Nisqually League.

Brody Moore pitched well in the first game, Lazano said. The Rivals were hurt by a couple of errors in the field.

In the outfield, he thought Evan Kraft and Hayden Montgomery played well and that Aaron Glanz was outstanding in center field in both games. Sean Jones filled in at catcher in the first game and did a good job, while Peter Giddens caught the second game.

The second game went to eight innings as Cascade Christian scored a pair of runs in the eighth to take a lead. The Rivals rallied in the bottom of the eighth but weren’t able to push any runs across.

Nate Nayler “continues to swing a hot bat” for the Rivals, Lazano said, while Owen Thornton pitched a good game and Rhian Popp pitched in relief in both games.

The Rivals (2-9 Nisqually League, 4-9 overall) next play tonight at Marymoor Park against league leader Bellevue Christian.
