THE DALLES — Tuesday’s game against The Dalles-Wahtonka started off well for the winless Hood River Valley baseball team.
But a two-run first inning didn’t even hold up until the end of the frame, as the Eagles went on to lose 10-3 to their Mid-Columbia rivals at Quinton Street Ballpark.
TDW’s Jeff Isaak tattooed a fifth-inning grand slam to put the game out of reach for the Eagles, who used three different pitchers before dropping their 13th consecutive game (0-7 Intermountain Conference) to start the season.
HRV scored two runs in the first inning to build some early confidence. Senior catcher Brian Stenberg scored on a fielder’s choice with one out, while sophomore Rob Kloster scored on Jordan Peldyak’s sacrifice fly.
Junior Colby Richards started the game on the mound and gave way to Peldyak in the third after giving up four runs in two-plus innings of work. Peldyak finished out the third and after HRV got one run back in the top of the fourth, he allowed one run in the bottom half to make it 6-3 The Dalles.
Isaak’s grand slam ended up being the backbreaker as TDW improved to 3-4 in IMC play.
HRV is back in action today with a home double-header against Summit. First pitch is at 2 p.m.
