Waitsburg-Prescott 1-2 at Pilot Rock tournament


PILOT ROCK — Waitsburg-Prescott’s baseball team went 1-2 at the Pilot Rock Tournament here Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, W-P opened with a 19-2 trouncing of the host Rockets, before Knappa threw a 10-0, no hit loss its way.

Pilot Rock then avenged its opening loss with a 2-1 victory over W-P.

W-P is now 2-2 in non-league play, and heads to McLoughlin High on Tuesday for a single game.

On Friday, Jacob Dunn went five innings on the mound, giving up one hit to pick up his first victory.

“Jacob Dunn had great command on the mound,” W-P coach Dustin Snedigar said.

Talen Larsen and Mike Grant both had three W-P hits. The team smacked 13 hits in the game.

On Saturday, W-P faced a tough Knappa pitcher who recorded 14 strikeouts in a complete-game no-hitter.

“Knappa’s pitcher completed what he started on his way to a no-hitter over Waitsburg-Prescott,” Snedigar said.

W-P’s defense gave up six errors in the loss.

In the rematch with the Rockets, Larsen “battled on the mound, but it was not enough,” Larsen said.

W-P loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth inning, and tied it up at 1-all, but were unable to take the lead.

A Rockets home run in the bottom of the sixth lifted them to the win.

W-P opens league play Thursday at Garfield-Palouse.
