Coupeville sweeps MV to go unbeaten / 15U Babe Ruth

Aston Leland tossed a no-hitter in the first game of a doubleheader sweep at Mount Vernon Monday, June 25, to help the Coupeville 15U Babe Ruth baseball team finish the regular season undefeated.

Coupeville, coached by Steve Hilborn, ran its record to 16-0 and will now head to the state tournament July 11-15 in Ephrata.

Leland struck out 10 and walked four in the Wolves’ 6-0 five-inning win in the first game Monday.

Coupeville won the second game 6-3; however, Mount Vernon did not get to bat in the bottom of the final inning because of darkness.

Coupeville 6, Mount Vernon 0 (5 innings)

Ulrik Wells slugged a double in the first inning to help the Wolves jump to a 2-0 lead. Coupeville played add-on from there, scoring in each inning but the second.

Ulrik also had a single, walk and two RBI.

Johnny Carlson singled and drove in two runs, and Scott Hilborn and Gavin Knoblich each added a base hit and RBI.

Hawthorne Wolfe singled and scored a run.

Coupeville 6, Mount Vernon 3 (5 innings)

In the second game, Coupeville trailed 3-1 before pulling away with two runs in the fourth inning and three in the fifth.

The Wolves were aided by four Mount Vernon errors, which led to three unearned runs.

Wells hit a triple, Leland doubled, and Hilborn, Wolfe, Daniel Olson and Sage Sharp chipped in with singles.

Knoblich, Olson and Sharp collected RBI; Olson also scored twice and stole two bases.

Carlson pitched the first two innings, giving up five hits and three runs while striking out two.

Xavier Murdy tossed two innings and surrendered one hit while fanning four.
