The Tigers outlast Grizzlies to get a 2-1 victory Tuesday

McMINNVILLE — It certainly wasn’t easy.

And the Tigers had to work a bit extra, but they came away with a victory in their conference opener.

The Tigard High School baseball team opened its Pacific Conference schedule by getting a 2-1, 10 inning road victory over McMinnville on Tuesday.

With the victory, the Tigers improved to 4-5 on the season, while McMinnville dropped to 7-2.

Tigard senior Shane Rasor drove in what turned out to be the winning run in the top of the 10th inning. He also scored Tigard’s first run and had two hits in the contest. Senior Bruin Campbell singled in Rasor for the Tigers’ first run. Seniors Jesse Bye and Jake Biglow added one hit apiece for the Tigers.

Senior Ray Barlow pitched the first six innings for the Tigers. He gave up one unearned run on three hits while striking out five and walking three.

Junior Tyler Walker finished the game on the mound for Tigard, throwing four shutout innings.

The Tigers got a key defensive play in the bottom of the seventh inning. With the bases loaded, and no outs, Bye, fielding a grounder, started a 5-2-3 double play, throwing the ball to junior catcher Jarod Gogal for the first out, with Gogal then getting the ball to Biglow at first base to complete the double play.

Tigard and McMinnville were slated to complete their two-game series Wednesday with a game at Tigard High School. Results of that game weren’t available when The Times went to press.

The Tigers will be back in action Friday when they host Glencoe in the first game of a two-game series, starting at 4:30 p.m. at Tigard High School.

The teams will then play again Monday, starting at 4:30 p.m., at Glencoe High School.
