Dayton takes baseball decision over Touchet


TOUCHET — Dayton’s Lowden Smith tossed six innings of shutout ball as the Bulldogs beat Touchet, 11-4, on Tuesday.

Smith struck out 15 of the 22 batters he faced, as the Indians had trouble keeping up with Dayton’s No. 1 stud.

“I think he’s one of the best pitchers in the league,” Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. “We had a hard time catching up to him. We weren’t hitting the ball. That’s pretty much the name of the game. They came away with 11 hits, they were swinging the bat.”

Touchet pushed across four runs in the seventh after Smith left the game.

The Indians host Umatilla on Thursday. Dayton faces the Mac-Hi junior varsity team on Saturday.
