Jaguars take baseball twin bill from Waitsburg-Prescott


PASCO — The Waitsburg-Prescott baseball tam dropped a heartbreaker to Tri-Cities Prep, 10-9, in the first game of a Southeast 2B League twin bill here Saturday, and the Jaguars completed the sweep with a 14-8 victory.

In the opener, W-P scored four second-inning runs to take a 4-2 lead, and enjoyed the lead into the seventh, 8-7. After a solo run in the top of the seventh, W-P allowed Tri-Cities Prep a three-spot for the victory.

Starting pitcher Talen Larsen had three hits for W-P, while Jacob Dunn and Kyle Gradwohl each smacked a pair.

In the nightcap, the Jaguars jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning.

W-P tied it at 3-all in the third, and took a 4-3 lead in the fourth. That lead increased to 6-3 in the fifth, but T-C Prep’s bats unloaded for 11 runs in the bottom of the stanza and cruised to the victory.

Kyle Dozier led W-P’s offense in the nightcap with a pair of hits.

W-P, now 4-6 overall and 1-2 in league play, travels to Garfield-Palouse on Tuesday.
