Loggers Take Advantage of Walks to Edge T-Wolves


Onalaska drew 13 walks and scored most of its runs early to fend off Morton-White Pass for a 5-3 road victory in Central 2B League play on Thursday.

On a day when hits were hard to come by — just three by Onalaska — the Loggers were patient at the plate and took advantage of the Timberwolves pitching staff’s shaky accuracy to draw 13 walks.

Led by Ethan Cameron’s 2 for 3 performance at the plate with two RBIs, the Loggers held a 4-3 lead through five innings before plating one run in the sixth and holding on for the win.

Cooper Lawrence had Onalaska’s only other hit, going 1 for 1 with three walks. Rylan McGraw and Lane Zandell each drove in a run with walks, while Domanic Serl drew two walks himself.

Ony’s Jeremy Larson went 6 ⅔ innings, striking out 10 while allowing three earned runs on eight hits and no walks. Lethon Fitch threw the final ⅓ of the seventh inning, striking out all three batters he faced.

Morton-White Pass found some success at the plate, tallying eight hits on the day, but couldn’t string enough together while drawing zero walks.

Keaton Thompson and Jace Peters led the way for MWP, each going 2 for 4 with a run scored. Peters also drove in a run. Carter Dantinne was 1 for 4 and drove in two runs and Payton Gordon scored once.

Peters started on the mound for the T-Wolves, lasting ⅓ of an innings while striking out one and allowing one earned run with two walks and no hits. Bleu Arron went four innings, striking out three and allowing two earned runs on eight walks and two hits.

Morton-White Pass next heads to Adna for a C2BL contest at 4 p.m. on Monday.

Onalaska hosts Adna in a make-up doubleheader starting at noon on Saturday.
