WR splits nonleague contests | White River baseball

The White River High baseball team traveled north Saturday – about as far north as national boundaries will allow – and split a pair of games at Pipeline Field in the border town of Blaine. The day started with a 7-4 victory over the host Borderites and concluded with a disappointing effort against the squad from Meridian High.

The White River High baseball team traveled north Saturday – about as far north as national boundaries will allow – and split a pair of games at Pipeline Field in the border town of Blaine.

The day started with a 7-4 victory over the host Borderites and concluded with a disappointing effort against the squad from Meridian High.

The opener belonged to Hornet starting pitcher Mason Harris, who went six-plus innings and struck out 10 batters while allowing just a lone hit.

Offensively, White River was paced by Riley Johnson and Dustin France, each with multiple hits.

All four of Blaine’s runs came in the bottom of the seventh inning courtesy of a couple of walks and what Hornet coach Mike Williams termed “weird plays.”

Game 2 saw less in the way of a Hornet offense and White River was blanked 6-0.

“As is the case in most doubleheaders we could not match the energy of the Meridian team,” Williams reported via email. “We were outcoached, outplayed and embarrassed.”

Williams spread his talent around and it didn’t pay dividends. Sean Klapperich lasted two innings on the mound, Braden Fjeld tossed a pair and Trent Buchanan and Johnson pitched an inning each.

“Mitchell Webster swung the bat well and we played all 15 guys, so it was not a total loss,” Williams wrote.

Despite spring break, the Hornets will be seeing some game action. White River was to play a South Puget Sound League 2A game at Washington High Tuesday, then host the Washington squad at 4 p.m. today, Wednesday.
