Rainier drops two to Toutle Lake


Not much went right for the Rainier baseball team on Monday, as the Mountaineers were beaten by Toutle Lake 13-0 and 15-3 in a doubleheader sweep.

In the first game, Toutle Lake scored all 13 of its runs in the first four innings, while Jared Sprouffske collected the Mountaineers’ (7-10, 7-9 C2BL) lone hit.

The Rainier offense had some success early in Game 2, scoring twice in the first before Hunter Howell hit an RBI double in the third, but the Ducks again piled on early. Toutle Lake scored nine runs in the first three innings and added six in the fourth.

Rainier will wrap up its regular season with a two-game series against Napavine, which is set to begin at Rainier on Friday.
