After a six-game Intermountain Conference losing streak, the Hood River Valley High School varsity baseball team rebounded at Traner Field Saturday to go one and one in a double-header against the Crook County Cowboys.
Saturday’s action put the Eagles at 3-9 in the IMC and 8-13 overall with four games remaining on the spring schedule.
Elliot Sherrell threw from the mound and took the loss in the first game of the double-header, which ended 13-9, Crook County. After falling behind 2-0 by the second inning, the Eagles rallied with four runs in the third to take the lead. The rally came when, with one out, Shay Huskey and Spencer Munos singled and Thomas Nickel walked to load the bases. Adam Coerper then stepped up and nailed a double down the right field line to bat in all three runners.
The Cowboys answered with their most productive inning in the sixth by scoring five runs. By the bottom of the seventh, they held a four point lead. The Eagles scored two in the fifth and three in the sixth, but they were shut down in the final inning and forced to take the loss.
HRV dominated game two. After scoring a run in the first, the Eagles blew open the game in the second with a seven-run rally. The momentum carried through the game, which would end 13-6. Shay Huskey got the win after pitching the complete game.
The boys have a break in action this week before traveling to Redmond for a double-header Saturday against the IMC’s number-two team, which sits at 10-1 in the league and 14-4 overall. Redmond’s only league loss came from a 12-11 game against The Dalles/Wahtonka in April.
