Vandals, Cougars split; Klickitat hurler comes within whiff of perfect game

Last-inning rallies decided both games of a high school baseball double-header between Klickitat and Lyle played March 18 in Lyle.

In the first game, the visiting Vandals scored three runs in the top of the seventh to pull out a 6-4 Greater Columbia B League victory over the Cougars.

The rally made a winner of Kris Wood, who tossed a scoreless bottom of the seventh to finish off a complete-game six-hitter.

Klickitat trailed 4-0 after three innings as Lyle pushed four earned runs across home plate. But Wood, who struck out nine and walked one, posted nothing but zeroes the rest of the way while his teammates struck for three runs in the fifth and three in the seventh.

Levi Sanchey, Dannon Kavanagh, Colton Smith and James Parsons each had two hits for Klickitat, which tagged losing pitcher Cord Cothren for 11 base knocks.

The Vandals' top run producers were Sanchey with two runs batted in and Kavanagh, Seth Davis, Wood, and Parsons with one RBI each.

For the Cougars, Chris Wolff collected two hits and drove in one run, and Cothren, Mike Murphy and Brady Huffman all had run-scoring base hits.

In the second game--a non-league contest--Lyle scored six times in its final at-bat to overtake Klickitat, 8-7.

Mike Eiseland and Mike Murphy totaled two hits and two RBIs each for the Cougars, who also got two hits from James Jackson.

Lyle's big finish came at the expense of reliever Jeff Groesch, who got two outs in the seventh before the winning run scored.

The win went to Murphy, who pitched the seventh for Lyle in relief of Eiesland, who left after six innings with Klickitat ahead, 5-2.
