Reed’s baseball team is in the midst of a spring break tournament in California this week and split the first two games it played before press time.
The boys fell 6-5 in eight innings on Monday afternoon to Hood River Valley (Oregon) after giving up four runs in the seventh inning and one in the eighth. Jeremy Gallegos was strong on the mound, pitching 4.1 innings of one-run ball and giving up just two hits, but the bullpen couldn’t hang on. Brendan Coffindaffer had two hits in the loss.
On Saturday, four Raider pitchers combined to give up just six hits and two runs in a 3-2 win over Tustin, Calif. Greg Oltman, Isaac Tecson and Scott Cameron led the way with two hits each.
Reed split a pair of league games last week after knocking off Wooster 7-1 on Tuesday and falling 14-3 to Damonte Ranch on Thursday. Trae Deleon had a hit and a pair of RBIs in the win over Wooster.
The Raiders (7-5, 2-2) continued its tournament this week and returns to Northern Nevada play April 2 at Carson.
The Cougs entered spring break after splitting four games last week.
Spanish Springs scored four runs in the first inning and held on to win 4-2 against East Union, Calif. on Saturday, a day after falling 5-3 to Sierra (Manteca, Calif.).
They continued league play earlier in the week when they lost 5-2 to Galena on Thursday after knocking off McQueen 2-0 last Tuesday.
The Cougs (8-3, 2-2) play next on April 4 when they host Carson.
