Comeback by Toledo falls short against Kalama


Attempting to dig out of a 5-0 hole, the Riverhawks slowly climbed their way back, but the light ran out as they dropped a 5-3 C2BL contest to the Chinooks on Saturday afternoon in Kalama.

After taking the first game of the two-game set on Friday, Toledo (6-8, 5-7 C2BL) couldn’t snare a sweep. It scored two runs in the top of the sixth on a Rohan Feigenbaum sacrifice fly and a bases loaded walk by Bayron Rodriguez, but the inning ended with a bases loaded strikeout.

Nico Acosta ripped an RBI single in the seventh and the Riverhawks brought the tying run to the plate. Kalama was able to get a four-pitch strikeout to hold on for the win. Gavin Frewing struck out nine in six innings of work on the mound.

Toledo will turn its attention to Wahkiakum on Wednesday.
