Four days after getting blown out and no hit by Stanwood, the Oak Harbor Junior Legion AA team got redemption, defeating the Post 92 team 9-7 Monday to win Marysvilles Baunsgard tournament.
The same pitcher, Nick Alexander, who pitched a no hitter against us last week threw today and we chased him in the fourth inning after getting seven runs on nine hits, OHHS head coach Jim Waller said. Also, our two pitchers, Mark Radach and Jeff Lang, who gave up 13 runs in three innings against Stanwood the other day did a good job today containing their very potent lineup.
Oak Harbor was led at the plate by Chris Valencia, who was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI, Marshall Lobbestael, who was 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI and Ernie Martinez, who was 3-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI.
