Acorns top Wolverines for fifth consecutive win


Oakville’s offense didn’t have another banner day, but it did enough to come away with a 6-4 victory over Northwest Christian (Lacey).

Oakville took a 3-0 lead right out of the gate, but the Wolverines took a 4-3 lead in the third.

The tying run scored on a balk in the top of the fourth, and an RBI groundout from Oscar Sanchez gave Oakville the lead in the fifth. 

An insurance run in the seventh was more that enough for Gio Rodas, who settled in on the mound after the four-run third. He pitched the entire game, allowing six hits and four runs while walking one and striking out 12.

Koner Burnett collected one of Oakville’s four hits, a two-run triple that opened the scoring.

It’s the Acorns’ (7-3, 2-0 1B Coastal) fifth win in a row, and they’ll look to push the streak to six on Monday at Naselle.
