PREPS: Forks baseball season wraps with loss to Ilwaco

Rognlien homer powers Port Angeles

ADNA — Forks’ season came to a close with a 9-2 loss to Pacific League foe Ilwaco in the Class 2B Southwest District Tournament on Thursday at Adna High School.

The Spartans were in the game early, tying it up at 1-all in the second inning on Jack Delgado’s RBI single to right field and loading the bases when the next batter, Bubba Hernandez, was hit by a pitch.

Unfortunately, Forks batted into a double play to end the threat and Ilwaco went off from there, adding runs in every inning of the contest, including a two-run home run by Boston Caron to make it 6-1 in the bottom of the fourth.

Delgado was a bright spot for the Spartans, going 3-for-3 at the plate with two RBIs.

Landin Davis went 2-for-4 and scored a run in his final game in navy and yellow.

Forks finished the season with a 14-6 record.

BREMERTON — Heidi Leitz racked up 10 strikeouts in a complete-game pitching performance and Kennedy Rognlien and Ava-Anne Sheahan provided the offensive fireworks in a win over the No. 9 Trojans.

Sheahan was 2-for-2, driving in Rognlien with an RBI single to put the Roughriders up 1-0 in the second inning.

Leitz allowed a solo home run to tie the game up in the third before the game settled into a defensive duel.

Port Angeles’ rally started with two outs in the top of the sixth.

Natalie Robinson reached on an error and Rognlien followed with a home run to left field.

Abby Kimball kept things going with a double to left and Sheahan doubled to center to bring home pinch runner Ali Money for a 4-1 lead.

Leitz allowed a pair of singles to open the sixth before getting out of the jam and gave up a base hit to start the seventh before recording three straight outs, two of them strikeouts.

No. 2 Port Angeles (12-1, 16-2) will play North Kitsap (12-1, 14-4) in a tiebreaker for the Olympic League Championship on Monday at 4 p.m. at Sequim High School.
