Philomath’s D1 baseball team won its first game of the summer Wednesday with an 11-1 rout over visiting Sprague.

Les & Bob’s pitchers Brian McClelland and Adam Hernandez combined to throw a no-hitter in the five-inning mercy rule victory. McClelland went the first three innings and struck out four while walking none. Hernandez tossed the fourth and fifth and allowed one run, which was unearned, walked one and struck out three.

Les & Bob’s put this game away early with 10 runs in the first inning. The first six batters reached base on an error, three singles, a walk and another single. Even the team’s first out produced a run on a sacrifice fly by Jacob Williams.

The home team then got six more on base on a two walks, a single, a hit by pitch, another walk and another single before Brody Hiner hit a sac fly. Dylan Bennett went 2 for 2 in the inning.

Les & Bob’s added its 11th run in the second. Williams reached on an error and scored later on another Sprague error. In all, the visitors had five errors in the shortened game.

Besides Bennett, Cameron Ordway had a multiple-hit game with a single and a double.

Sprague scored its only run in the fourth when a batter reached on an error, moved to second on defensive indifference, stole third and reached home on a wild pitch.

In Les & Bob’s opener Monday, coach Levi Webber threw a different pitcher every inning in an 11-4 loss to Sweet Home. McClelland started followed by Hernandez, Carson Gerding, Skylar Brolin, Mark Grimmer, Bennett and Hiner.

Among those pitchers, Hiner appeared to be the most effective with a 13-pitch seventh with two strikeouts.

Sweet Home led 3-2 before creating a cushion with four runs in the fourth and then after Philomath came back with two in the bottom half, scored three more in the fifth.

Les & Bob’s collected six hits in the game with those scattered among six players. Bennett went 1 for 2 with two RBIs on a triple he smacked in the fourth. Ordway had a one-run single in the third.

Les & Bob’s (1-1) is scheduled to next take the field on Monday at home against South Albany.
