Beavers Sweep Grizzlies in Doubleheader


Recording its second straight doubleheader sweep, the Tenino baseball team needed just one day and two games to win the season series with Hoquiam in 15-3 and 12-1 victories Tuesday afternoon on the road. 

The highlight for the Beavers was a no-hitter thrown by Brody Noonan in the second game. Though Noonan gave up a run in the first inning after a walk, a sac bunt, a wild pitch and a fielder’s choice all advanced a runner home, he was lights out the rest of the second game with six strikeouts over five innings in the 12-1 win. 

Mikey Vasser starred at the plate in both games, hitting a combined 5 for 6 with eight RBIs. 

Vasser also relieved Jack Burkhardt in the first game, giving up just one hit with no earned runs in two innings, while Burkhardt pitched the first four innings, striking out two with three earned runs. 

“All three of our pitchers today threw great,” Beavers coach Ryan Schlesser said. “A lot of strikes and challenges, defense made plays behind.”

The Beavers (9-4, 4-1 1A Evergreen) will take on Hoquiam again Wednesday at home looking for the series sweep.
