PREP BASEBALL: Riders able to hold off Wolves again

Forks steals 30 bases and sweeps a pair of games over Ocosta

SEQUIM — The Port Angeles baseball team got big games from Nate Basden and Alex Angevine and was able to beat Sequim for the second time in a week in another hard-fought game 7-4 in Sequim.

Basden went 3-for-3 with a double, four runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base while Angevine was 4-for-5 with a triple, two RBIs, a run scored and a stolen base.

On the mound, the Roughriders used a total of five pitchers, saving their best pitchers Colton Romero and Brian Guttormsen. The quintet of Brayden Martin, Hunter Stratford, Maeson Grice, Angevine and Rylan Politika struck out nine and allowed six hits.

For Sequim, Zeke Schmadeke pitched most of the game, going 4⅓ innings and allowing six hits and three earned runs. He struck out five. Brayden White went 2⅔ innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs while striking our four.

At the plate, Bryant Laboy had a double, an RBI and a stolen base for the Wolves as he went 2-for-4 at the plate. White hit a triple, scored a run and drove one in while also walking. Ethan Staples had a hit, a run scored and an RBI. Schmadeke walked five straight times, scoring one run and stealing a base.

Romero also had a hit, an RBI sac fly and a walk, driving in a total of three runs for the Riders. Jordan Shumway was 2-for-4 with a stolen base for Port Angeles.

Much like a game Tuesday night in which Port Angeles won 5-2, Sequim did have its chances. The Wolves loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh inning down 7-3 with only one out but managed to only push one run across as Hunter Stratford came in to get White to fly out to end the game.

Port Angeles played Bellevue on Saturday while Sequim played Ingraham. Look for updates on those games Sunday.

Port Angeles (6-2, 10-3) returns to Olympic League play at North Mason (3-5, 4-6) at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday. Sequim (2-6, 4-6) hosts Crosspoint at 4:15 p.m. Monday.
