After a tough doubleheader at Mountain View High School Saturday in which the Eagles lost 13-3 and 14-6, the Hood River Valley varsity boys’ baseball team rallied at home Tuesday for a 9-0 shutout win over the Hermiston Bulldogs.
Freshman Elliot Sherrell led the defensive skunk by pitching all seven innings of the shutout. The game ended with Sherrell throwing only 66 pitches, which is considerably lower than average.
“He was able to accomplish this by fastball location and the use of his off-speed pitches (curve ball and change-up),” Coach Craig Webster commented. “We also played outstanding defense, especially Shay Huskey at shortstop, Spencer Munos in leftfield and Chase Munos in centerfield.”
The boys would end with zero errors on the day, and perhaps the best play of the game came from Huskey, who made a laid-out, diving save at shortstop.
Highlighting Hood River’s solid offensive showing, which ended with nine hits, was Adam Coerper’s pinch hit triple in the sixth inning, which scored two RBI’s and sealed the win for the Eagles.
Next up for the Eagles is a home game today versus Bend. JV starts and noon and varsity at 1 p.m.
