Wolves win two / Baseball

The Coupeville High School summer baseball team won twice at the Grays Harbor Fourth of July Bash last weekend.

Rush 3, Coupeville 1

The Washington Rush based out of Everett scored all of its runs in the third inning to win the tournament opener.

“Overall, (we) played a good, error free game,” coach Chris Smith said. “I was very proud of the way we composed ourselves and competed.”

Clay Reilly rapped two hits for Coupeville, Dane Lucero had a hit and drove in the Wolves’ run and Hunter Smith and Nick Etzell added base hits.

Jonathan Thurston threw five innings and struck out four.

Coupeville 7, Avengers 5

After an early lead disappeared, Coupeville scored two runs in the sixth inning to secure the win.

The Avengers from Enumclaw scored in the top of the first, then the Wolves countered with a run in their half and added two more in the second.

The Avengers rallied for four runs in the fourth to go up 5-3.

Coupeville scored single runs in the fourth and fifth to tie the game.

Coupeville catcher Taylor Consford stopped the Avengers’ running game by throwing out all three who tried to steal, and Etzell pitched two and two-third innings of scoreless relief.

The Wolves offense was led by hits by Consford, Reilly, Etzell, Joey Lippo, Matt Hilborn, Jake Hoagland, Kyle Rockwell and Gavin Knoblich.

Rush 6, Coupeville 3

Coupeville out-hit the rush 8-2 but fell to the club for the second time.

Hoagland and Etzell each had two hits for Coupeville, and Hilborn drove in two runs.

Hilborn also pitched three innings and struck out four.

The Rush, which includes Oak Harbor High School player James Besaw, went on to finish second in the tournament.

Coupeville 10, Timberjacks 2

Down 2-0, the Wolves scored 10 runs, including five in the fifth, over the final four innings to pull away.

Donny Kloewer, Lippo and Etzell each had two hits for Coupeville. Smith collected three RBI and Lucero two.

Smith’s three-run single sparked the five-run fifth.

Consford pitched a complete game five-hitter with four strikeouts.
