PUYALLUP — Landon Cray and Austin McConnell pitched and hit the Cowboys to the Nisqually League victory over a strong Cascade Christian on Tuesday.

The Class 1A powerhouse now is 3-0 in league and 9-1 on the season, losing only to 2A North Kitsap in the preseason.

Chimacum dominated Tuesday’s game, lading 4-0 after two innings and 6-0 after five.

Cascade scored its lone run in the bottom of the seventh.

Cray (3-1) struck out six in five innings, giving up just one walk and one hit and no runs while McConnell pitched the final two innings, fanning three while allowing four hits and an earned run.

Cray and McConnell also were the top hitters as Cray went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored while McConnell was 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a run.

Devin Manix walked twice and scored two runs.

Quinn Eldridge hit a home run but had it taken away when the umpire said he didn’t see where it landed, coach Jim Dunn said.

“That was ridiculous,” Dunn said. “You could see that the ball had landed inside of the foul pole.”

The Cowboys next host Seattle Christian on Thursday.

Sequim 16, Olympic 6

SILVERDALE — The Wolves bats are heating up at just the right time.

Sequim 10-runned an Olympic League opponent in five innings for the second game in a row Tuesday, dropping Olympic behind a barrage of 16 hits.

With a showdown against Port Angeles set for today at Volunteer Field at 4 p.m., Sequim (6-2 in league, 9-3 overall) appears to be hitting its stride.

“We swung the bats as well as we had all year today,” said Sequim coach Dave Ditlefsen, whose team has played seven games in nine days.

“The way we’re swinging the bats right now, I guess getting all of those at bats really helps the kids at the plate.”

Tyler Campbell went the distance on the mound in Tuesday’s win, giving Ditlefsen the luxury of having two of his best hurlers (Drew Rickerson and Isaac Yamamoto) available for today’s game.

“We’ll have guys ready,” Ditlefsen said.

Of course, that includes the suddenly smoking Sequim lineup.

Sequim had six players with multi-hit games Tuesday, led by three-hit games from Kyler Johnston, Ray Montelius and Yamamoto.

A day earlier, Rickerson was a home run short of the cycle while driving in seven runs in the Wolves’ 17-1 win at Bremerton.

The senior went 3-for-3 with a double, triple and two walks, leading Sequim to a five-inning mercy rule win.

PUYALLUP — The mercy rule came into effect early as the Nisqually League game was called after three innings when Cascade Christian forfeited.

The Cowboys, with only six games under their belts, scored seven runs in the first inning and 10 in the third.

Chimacum improved to 2-1 in league and 4-2 overall.

Kaitlyn Cabero now is 2-0 after allowing just two hits, walking none and striking out one in the three-inning game.

Mallori Cossell started it off on the right foot with an inside-the-park home run in the first inning.

She ended up 2-for-4 with three RBIs.

Megan Dukek was a perfect 3-for-3 with four RBIs.

It wasn’t all good news for the Cowboys this week, though, as standout first baseman Krista Hathaway may miss the rest of the season after breaking an ankle playing in a select tournament last weekend.

Chimacum next will host Seattle Christian on Thursday.

SILVERDALE — The Wolves (7-0 in league, 10-0 overall) are still waiting for a seven-inning game after Tuesday’s thrashing of the Trojans.

Sequim now has 10 straight mercy-rule victories to begin the season, with Tuesday’s coming after the Wolves slugged 18 hits in a five-inning blowout.

Six different Sequim hitters went for two hits or more, led by four-hit efforts from sisters Rylleigh and Maddy Zbaraschuk.

The latter had a double and a home run, as well as four RBIs and three runs scored.

Sequim travels to Port Angeles today to take on the Roughriders in a battle of the Olympic League’s only two unbeaten teams.

The Vashon goalkeeper blocked a Chimacum penalty kick in the first half to keep the Cowboys out of the net.

BREMERTON — The defending Olympic League champion Knights led the Roughriders by only 2-1 at halftime and led just 3-1 late in the game but scored two late goals to cruise to the league win.

Tamrat Haskins gave the Riders the early lead by scoring in the ninth minute on an assist by Ali El Maallam.

The Knights tied it up in the 13th minute and went ahead for good in the 23rd minute.

Port Angeles goalkeeper Jack Doryland got banged up in the match but coach Chris Saari said he hopes the sophomore will be OK.

“They outplayed us and we had some defensive lapses,” Saari said.

Haskins was named the offensive player of the game while El Maallam was picked as the transition player.

The Bremerton JV won 4-0.

The Riders next host North Mason on Thursday at Civic Field starting at 6:45 p.m.
