Omak wins first league victory

The Tigers then broke loose, scoring two in the second and four in the fourth for a 9-3 lead.
The Mountain Lions clawed their way back into the game with three runs in the top of the fifth to cut the lead to 9-6.
From there the game resembled a prize fight, with each team putting the other on the ropes before they would reverse positions.

The Tigers’ pitcher, Grace Cory, lasted into the fourth inning, when she walked several batters before giving way to Jaelynn DeJong, who got the final out. DeJong pitched the final two innings to finish striking out two, walking four and giving up one hit and four earned runs.

Brewster 7, Tonasket 2
TONASKET — Brewster broke open a close league game with five runs in the top of the seventh for a 7-2 victory over Tonasket on April 30.
Each team finished with four hits.
The Bears took advantage of three Tiger errors and nine walks.
Tonasket led 1-0 after the first inning before Brewster tied with a run in the fourth and took a 2-1 lead with a run in the fifth.
That set up the final inning, in which the Bears got five in the top of the seventh while the Tigers scored one in the bottom of the inning.
The Bears’ Sammi Emigh struck out nine, walked four, and gave up four hits and no earned runs.
The Tigers’ Jaclyn DeJong went a complete game, striking out five, walking nine and yielding four hits and four earned runs.
“It was a good test for us,” Brewster coach Jesse Barnes said. “We haven’t played a game that was that close yet this season. It took a while to adjust to the faster pitching, but we strung together some hits in key spots to score runs.”
Teams will be seeded to state at the District 5/6 regional tournament May 18 at the Paul Lauzier Athletic Complex in Moses Lake.
