An experienced Class 5A-level West Albany baseball team on its home field handed Philomath’s Les & Bob’s ballclub a 15-0 loss Thursday evening.

Philomath’s record goes to 4-8 on the summer. The team heads to Crescent Valley for a Friday night matchup.

Against West Albany, Les & Bob’s got into a big hole early with a 12-0 deficit through two innings. The team, which had two top starters not available to play, had limited offensive opportunities with four hits on the night but nearly scored a couple of times.

In the third, Mark Grimmer reached on a one-out single and moved over to second on an Adam Hernandez ground-out. Cameron Ordway followed with a single but Grimmer was thrown out at the plate to end the inning.

Philomath also got runners into scoring position in the first and fourth innings. Hernandez opened the game with a walk and stole second but he was stranded. In the fourth, Carson Gerding and Garrett Blowers had back-to-back one-out singles but West Albany got out of the jam with a fly-out to center and a strikeout.

Skylar Brolin and Blake Niemann split time on the mound each with two innings pitched.
