Blue Devils blast Cubs in American Legion play

Lewis-Clark Cubs player Tyler Grandlund slides into second as Moscow Blue Devils second baseman Chad Redinger prepares to catch the ball during Game 1 of a doubleheader Tuesday at Harris Field.

The visiting Moscow Blue Devils blanked the Lewis-Clark Cubs 10-0 and 16-0 in an American Legion doubleheader Tuesday at Harris Field.

Hayden Thompson threw nine strikeouts in five innings in Game 1 for Moscow and had had three base hits in Game 2, while Preston Boyer had three strikeouts as he closed out the first game and made two base hits with a triple to boot. Chad Redinger provided four hits in the second game and tripled in both as he totaled five hits. Isaac Staszkow had five hits of his own on the day with three RBI in Game 2, and pitched all five innings of that contest with three strikeouts before the Blue Devils prevailed by mercy rule.

“Moscow’s a very experienced club,” Cubs coach Kent Knigge said. “They’re aggressive hitters, and we’ve just got to clean up our fielding and keep moving forward.”

Tucker Konkol pitched three strikeouts for the Cubs (1-3) in the second game, and Nathan Somers had a hit in each game.

Asotin 45, Chewelah 43

CHEWELAH — Shorthanded Asotin mounted a major fourth-quarter rally to pull past Chewelah in 2B Bi-County League play.

Freshmen Gavin Ells and Brady Moore “played way above their years,” according to coach Seth Paine, as they stepped up to help fill the void left by two missing starters for Asotin. Tanner Nicholas stepped in at point guard and provided leadership for the adjusted lineup.

“It was a great team win, and I’m super proud of the guys,” Paine said.
