Les & Bob's baseball

The Les & Bob’s baseball team continued its summer experimentation with players Monday evening in a 5-2 loss to South Salem.

Coach Levi Webber gave senior-to-be Brody Hiner his first start of the summer in the D1 contest at Terry Stephenson Field. Hiner, who has been used in the past as a catcher, third baseman, pitcher and designated hitter, threw four innings and allowed five hits and two earned runs with one walk and four strikeouts.

Hiner’s only other appearance this summer occurred on June 10 when he threw 13 pitches in an inning against Sweet Home. Against South Salem, he threw 81 pitches.

South Salem scored single runs in the first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings to methodically pull away from Les & Bob’s.

The home team nearly got on the board in the second when Hiner reached on a two-base error to open the inning and Brian McClelland followed with a single. But Les & Bob’s ended up stranding two.

In the fourth, Philomath threatened again. Dylan Bennett doubled but was thrown out trying to stretch it to third. Then with two outs, McClelland singled and Russell was hit by a pitch to put two runners on base. South Salem escaped, however, with an inning-ending strikeout.

Down 5-0 in the bottom of the fifth, Les & Bob’s came up with two runs. Levi Carter, who played catcher, worked an inning-opening walk, advanced on a passed ball and came home on a triple by Adam Hernandez. Carson Gerding’s grounder to the right side pushed Hernandez home for the second run.

South Salem used seven different pitchers to throw an inning apiece.

Philomath pulled off a double play in the sixth inning that involved Garrett Blowers in center, Bennett, who had taken over at pitcher, and Blake Niemann at second base.

McClelland was the lone Philomath player with more than one hit, going 2 for 3.

Les & Bob’s (4-4) is scheduled to play Tuesday at Dallas.
