GRESHAM — Still trying to develop a midseason rhythm, the HRV baseball team took on league rival Centennial Friday.
And despite a last-minute scratch of starter Jon Winnett, who suffered a hip pointer in practice Thursday, the team responded to win the game 6-2.
More specifically, Jarrod Fogle responded, going 5 1/3 innings and giving up just two earned runs on the day to put the Eagles at 2-1 in the conference.
“We’re going to need Winnett, but I was very impressed with the effort Jarrod gave us Friday,” coach Gerry Flink said. “He doesn’t blow away hitters, but he pitches smart. And that’s what we needed out of him.”
Zack Lucas pitched a perfect sixth and Heath Goin a perfect seventh to close out the win.
Offensively, Kyle Maurer had a solid game in left field, picking up two hits, a walk and an RBI. Shortstop Danny Gilkerson continued to blister the ball, recording another two hits to go with an RBI.
Centerfielder Tony Hull and the first baseman Goin also contributed to the late- inning resurgence, each going 2-3 with a walk. Goin’s big hit was a two-RBI double in the five-run fifth that put the Eagles up 5-2.
Lorin Herman scored an insurance run in the sixth after a one-out double, and that was all the Eagles needed.
SANDY — The offense wasn’t as efficient on Monday at Sandy, but it wasn’t as much the lack of offense as it was the brilliance Sandy starter Ryan Thorson, who held HRV to four hits during a 6-0 shutout.
“Thorson controlled us,” Flink said. “We didn’t really play that poorly. He just kept us off-balance the entire game.”
Goin started the game and went five innings, giving up three earned runs on five hits with five strikeouts. Lucas pitched the sixth and gave up one unearned run on two hits.
Errors again hurt the Eagles (2-2, 3-9) Monday, as three of Sandy’s six runs were unearned.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
