CSI SWEEPS WILDCATS
TWIN FALLS, Idaho — Western Nevada fell to 9-11 in Scenic West Athletic Conference play after being swept by College of Southern Idaho, 6-5 and 8-4, Saturday afternoon.
The opening loss was especially disappointing because the Wildcats and Christian Stolo took a 3-0 lead into the last of the seventh only to see CSI score three in the bottom of the seventh and three in the bottom of the eighth to grab the victory.
Stolo allowed just one hit in 6 2/3 innings. He fanned five and walked three. Luke Eubank was tagged with the loss after allowing three runs and three hits in 2/3 of an inning.
Tony Roque had two hits and drove in three runs to lead the offense, but he also had a costly error that led to three unearned runs.
In the nightcap, WNC grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first when Joey Crunkilton walked, stole second and scored on a double by Cole Ferguson.
The Wildcats threatened in the third, putting runners at second and third with one out. Spencer Dorsey followed with a groundball to short, and Mike Umscheid was cut down at home trying to score. Colby Rice struck out to end the inning.
After Austin Richmond worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the third, the roof caved in the following inning when CSI scored eight runs. Tanner Morache and Isaac Anderson had two-run singles and ex-Reno High star R.J. Bush came off the bench to smack a two-run homer. The hits by Anderson and Bush came off Spencer Greer, who failed to retire any of the three batters he faced. Tyler Bennett gave up a single, but didn’t allow another hit in 2 2/3 innings.
The Wildcats cut the deficit to 8-2 in the top of the fifth on back-to-back doubles by Conor Harber and Crunkilton.
WNC rallied in the top of the seventh after two out. Alex Fife was hit by a pitch and went to second when Harber singled. After Crunkilton walked to load the bases, Matt Becker stroked a two-run single off Dillon Dove to make it 8-4. Umscheid was retired for the final out.
Harber led the five-hit attack with two hits, while Crunkilton, Ferguson and Hernandez added one each.
PREP BASEBALL TIGERS SPLIT PAIR
After being handed its first league loss of the season Saturday morning, the Douglas baseball team was able salvage a doubleheader split with Damonte Ranch in the afternoon, maintaining its hold on first place in the Northern Division I standings.
The split ran Douglas’ record to 13-2 overall and 9-1 in league play. Douglas lost 10-7 and won 1-0.
Douglas senior Nolan Weintz turned in a gem on the mound in Game 2, tossing a complete-game three-hit shutout to improve to 4-0 this season.
With the game scoreless and two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Douglas right fielder Cale Kynett was hit by a pitch.
Teddy Mason then looped a ball into the outfield that appeared catchable, but a pair of Damonte fielders converged on it and neither made the catch. Kynett was able to come all the way around from first to score the game-winner on the play.
Earlier in the day, Damonte plated nine runs in the fourth and fifth inning combined to send Douglas to its first league loss.
The teams battled through the first two innings scoreless before the Tigers scratched their first run across after catcher Kaleb Foster walked and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Weintz then hit a soft line drive single that brought Foster in.
The Tigers carried the lead into the top of fourth where Damonte was able to put runners on first and third with no outs.
Tiger starter Kyle Johnson induced a pop fly to second baseman Cody Carter for the first out. Douglas then looked as though it might get out of the inning without any damage as Damonte’s Kyle Richard grounded into what looked like would be an inning-ending double play. An error, though, resulted in Douglas only getting one out from the play and in allowing the tying run to score.
The consecutive hits from the Mustangs, though, brought in three more runs to give Damonte a 4-1 lead.
Douglas answered right back in the bottom half as Carter doubled to bring Chase White home and Jimmy King later grounded out to short, allowing Carter to score from third.
Damonte brought five runs across in the top of the fifth, though, which proved to be insurmountable for the Tigers.
DAYTON SWEEPS LOVELOCK
LOVELOCK — Dayton swept Lovelock, 17-3 and 14-6, on Saturday to even its record at 5-5.

Michael Dieneman went the full five innings, fanning five and allowing two hits.
In the nightcap, Dayton trailed 6-5 entering the sixth. The Dust Devils scored nine runs in the sixth thanks to two squeeze bunt and a three-run homer by Selmi. Jarret Reed went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two triples and an RBI. Phillips went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI. Selmi went 3-for-5 with the homer and five RBI.

RENO — The tigers swept Galena 8-4 and 6-5 on Saturday to run their record to 10-4 overall and 4-2 in league.
Kelly Sonnemann hit a two-run homer in the first inning of the opener to give Douglas a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Julia Gomez and Leonna Mortimer also drove in two runs apiece.
Kali Sargent picked up the win in the circle, scattering seven hits in going the distance.
In the second game, Makayla Shaver hit a 3-run homer in the fifth inning, as the Tigers snapped a 2-all tie. Galena was able to come back with three to pull to 6-5, but Douglas held on for the win.
