LO wins series with OC, tops Canby in opener
Jordan Horak no-hits the Cougars on Monday to give the Lakers a win
The Lake Oswego baseball team won its series with Oregon City last week, taking the rubber game with a 4-2 decision.
Jack Kjemhus got the victory for the Lakers, tossing a complete game with three strikeouts while only yielding a pair of runs, neither of which were earned.
Lake Oswego scored in the top of the first on an RBI single by Travis Sanders which scored Jordan Horak. However, the Lakers squandered a chance to break the game open early against the stingy Pioneers with an inning-ending double play.
Oregon City would tie the game in the bottom of the inning.
In the top of the third, Jack Anderson knocked a one-out double and Horak would plate him with a single. Horak would later score on a balk to make it 3-1.
In a tight ballgame, the Lakers got some insurance in the top of the sixth when Sanders hit a one-out solo home run.
That was plenty of support for Kjemhus. He pitched out a jam in the bottom of the inning and then threw a perfect bottom of the seventh to wrap up the series win against the defending state champions.
On Monday, Lake Oswego captured the first game in its series with Canby, a team that has been a thorn in Lake Oswego's side in recent years.
The game was dominated by Horak, who tossed a no-hitter with eight strikeouts and three walks, giving up just one run in a 4-1 victory by the Lakers.
Lake Oswego scored first on an RBI single by Kjemhus in the second inning. Canby would then tie the game on a walk, an error and a bunt.
But that's all the scoring that would be done against Horak.
The Lakers regained the lead in the third inning when Mitch McLaughlin's double scored Sanders.
Lake Oswego tacked on one more run on a fielder's choice by Tyler Coleman and then a Reid Penney RBI single to score Anderson.
The Lakers will look to sweep the Cougars this week to stay within striking distance of Clackamas for first place.Add a comment
