No. 6 TD moves record to 4-1

The Dalles standout Charlie May hustles for a low liner in Friday’s softball game against 6A Bend. The No. 6-ranked Riverhawks moved their record to 4-1 on the year after posting a doubleheader split with the Lava Bears.

The Dalles softball team dominated Washougal, 11-0, and salvaged a home doubleheader split with 6A Bend Friday, taking a 3-0 win and a 19-10 loss at 16th Street Ballpark.

Thursday at Washougal, Wash., Bailey LeBreton was in complete control from the circle, as she tossed a five-inning no-hitter with four strikeouts, and Maddie Troutt induced the mercy rule with a three-run home run to cap a six-run fifth frame.

In all, the No. 6-ranked Riverhawks pounded out 10 hits, with Troutt, Lauryn Belanger, Ella Salvatori and Hannah Wallis posting two hits apiece.

Troutt was 2 for 4 with a home run, two runs scored and four RBIs, Belanger had a stolen base to go with her two hits, Salvatori singled and doubled and scored twice in three at-bats, and Wallis went 2 for 2 with a walk and a run scored.

Friday in The Dalles, LeBreton tossed a complete-game six-hitter with two strikeouts and two walks to boost the Hawks to a 3-0 first-game triumph over Bend.

Belanger finished 2 for 3 with a triple and a run scored, Grace Schatz added two hits, LeBreton was 1 for 3 with a walk and a stolen base, Charlie May was hit twice, scored a run and had an RBI, and the trio of Kilee Hoylman, Wallis and Emma Smith chipped in a hit each.

In Friday’s nightcap, Bend erased a 5-4 third-inning deficit with eight runs in the fourth and six more in the sixth to secure a 19-10 win.

LeBreton put up three hits, two runs scored and four RBIs, Smith was 3 for 5 with a stolen base and two runs scored, Belanger tallied three hits, a run scored and an RBI, and Troutt went 2 for 4 with a home run, a walk, two runs scored and three RBIs.

TD starter Mikayla Kelly lasted three innings and was tagged for seven runs, four earned, on 10 hits with two walks and a strikeout to get the losing decision.

Up next, The Dalles (4-1 overall) hosts Putnam at 5 p.m. Thursday, and hosts Prairie (10 a.m.) and Heritage (5:30 p.m.) Saturday.
