The Thurston County Senators knocked off the Trail Orioles 2-1 in another extra innings affair to move into the championship game of the Canada Day Blast in Kelowna, British Columbia. The Senators then lost a close one to the Seattle Studs, 5-4, to take second place in the tournament, their third second place finish in four years at the tournament.
The Hawks Prairie Cardinals sent 19 men to the plate in a wild 16 run fourth inning and trounced the Nisqually Silvers 19-4 in a shortened five inning game. All but two players in the Cardinals lineup scored twice in the inning. Jonathan Chodzko (Cuesta College) hit a two run homer and Jake Ayers (University of Redlands) and Jack Freeman (Saint Martin’s) each collected two run singles and added another RBI in their second at-bat in the inning. Bradley Bearden (Chemeketa College, Shelton HS) and Kenzy Forler (Tacoma CC, Capital HS) combined to give up just five hits to the Silvers.
The Olympia Athletics had their own big inning putting six runs on the board in the first en route to a 7-6 win over the West Olympia Linx. Tyler Watkins tripled to lead off the inning and the Linx fell apart hitting a batter, walking two and committing two errors in the inning. Rudy Leon (Spokane Falls) singled in one more run in the second inning to give the A’s a 7-2 lead. The Linx chipped away and made a game of it but couldn’t quite get over the hump in a seven inning game.
