PORT ANGELES — Jaron Tolliver doubled Carson Waddell home from second base to lift Local 155 to a 5-4 walk-off win over Swain’s in Olympic Junior Babe Ruth baseball at Volunteer Park.

Waddell also stole four bases and started on the mound for Local 155, giving up two runs to Swain’s in the first on an Ethan Swenson single and a Jensen Wolfe walk.

Local tied the game at 2-all in its half of the first when Landon Eastman doubled home Felix Gonzales and Alik Ross.

An Asher Irvine sacrifice bunt scored Eastman in the third inning to put Local up 3-2.

Gonzales went four shutout innings in relief, scattering three hits while striking out five and walking none.

For Swain’s, Diego Waterkotee led with two runs batted in and two hits, Swenson collected three hits, and Van Johnson also reached with a base hit.

Lefties fall late 3-2

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles dropped a nonleague wood bat baseball contest to the Redmond Dudes 3-2 Thursday night at Civic Field.

Drew Pfundt took the loss for Port Angeles. Pfundt gave up a leadoff single and a walk before an error on a fielder’s choice by shortstop Roberto Nunez scored the eventual winning run.

Port Angeles tied the game at 2-all in the seventh when Kosei Suzuki led off the inning with a walk, moved to second on a passed ball and came home on Yahir Ramirez’s two-out single.

Suzuki also doubled and scored on a Zach Blair double to put the Lefties on the board in the second inning.

Port Angeles and Wilder Baseball alumni John Vaara picked up his first inning of the summer on the mound with the 6-foot-8 pitcher allowing a hit and striking out a batter.
