Weston-McEwen baseball team picks wrong half for ‘tale of two games'

STANFIELD - In Weston-McEwen baseball coach T.J. Haguewood's words, it was "a tale of two games" within one game here Tuesday.

The TigerScots took a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the fifth inning, but the Tigers took advantage of W-M errors and got some big hits to put 10 runs on the board in the bottom of the inning to roll to the 16-6, six-inning victory.

The TigerScots had a five-run rally of their own in the top of the fifth, with Aaron Speed smacking a two-run triple before scoring himself on an error.

"The first five innings, we played OK baseball," Haguewood said. "The last two innings, we didn't play good baseball at all. It takes us as a team to finish games out, and that's my job to be able to do that."

W-M is 2-3 in Special District 6 play as the second half of play begins with the TigerScots hosting Heppner Saturday.

"We're in the hunt for a playoff spot," Haguewood said. "We're a good enough team to be in the playoffs, and we need to show that on a consistent basis. We just have to keep battling hard."

The loss moves them to 2-3 on the season.
