PREP ROUNDUP: Port Angeles' Brian Guttormsen throws 2-hit complete game

Shumway doubles twice

PORT ANGELES — A rarity in the day of pitch counts and innings limits, Brian Guttormsen went the distance on the mound for Port Angeles, tossing a two-hit shutout with no walks and seven strikeouts, as the Roughriders edged North Mason 5-3 Thursday.

It was the second win of the week over the Bulldogs, Port Angeles won 10-6 on Tuesday in Belfair.

Jordan Shumway came through with two clutch doubles for the Riders to pace the Port Angeles offense.

Alex Angevine drove in a run via a North Mason error with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the second but the Riders couldn’t add any additional runs.

Port Angeles added two more in the bottom of the third when Kaleb Mullen doubled to left with one out and came home to score on Shumway’s first double, this one also to left field.

Shumway then came home on a Rylan Politika RBI single for a 3-0 lead.

North Mason scratched two back in the top of the fourth, but the Riders got out of the inning by turning a double play.

Port Angeles added two more insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth on a Colton Romero sacrifice fly and Shumway’s second double, a line drive to left.

The Bulldogs put together an error, a balk and a passed ball to score one in their last at-bats but Guttormsen recorded the final ground out to put the game on ice.

Port Angeles (8-2, 12-4) hosts Bainbridge on Monday.
