The Lewis-Clark Twins’ offense was held stagnant and its pitching staff toiled in throwing strikes against Lakeside Recovery of Issaquah, Wash., on Thursday as they fell 10-0 in an American Legion Northwest Regional baseball tournament game at Harris Field that was called after five innings because of the mercy rule.
The Twins finished the summer 27-23.
Overall, L-C went down 1-2-3 in two innings and tallied a single hit in each of the other three. Nobody walked — L-C’s longest inning featured four batters. The Twins only went through their lineup twice.
It was because of Lakeside starting pitcher Brady Liddle, who threw a three-hit complete game, walking none and striking out 10 L-C batters on 83 pitches.
Meanwhile, Lakeside Recovery (31-18) accrued eight walks and had 10 hits, and still managed a rout despite leaving 10 runners on base. Lakeside had the bases loaded with one out when it scored its final run.
Twins starter Terin Judy went three innings, allowing four runs on a double, three singles and five walks on 80 pitches. Reliever Reece Shoults permitted a couple of runs and was replaced by Tyson Wallace before he could get an out.
In 1 innings of work, Wallace allowed six hits and walked two, accounting for four more runs after facing 12 batters.
Lakeside’s Nathan Moore led all players with three RBI on two hits, including a double. Tyler Reese connected on two doubles.
