Late run gives Bowmen another victory
Baseball: First-place Sherwood takes on second-place Glencoe this week
SHERWOOD - The Sherwood High School baseball team kept its perfect league record intact, but the Bowmen needed a last-inning run to do so.
Sherwood, getting the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning, scored a 2-1 win over Parkrose in a league game played last Thursday at Sherwood High School.
With the win, the Bowmen moved to 12-0 in league play, keeping them alone in first place, a game ahead of second-place Glencoe.
Junior Brennan Hickok ended up scoring the game-winning run for the Bowmen. He was hit by a pitch to lead off the bottom of the seventh. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Sean Campbell and scored on a single by senior Johnny Wade.
Wade scored Sherwood's first run of the game, coming in the third inning, on an RBI single by senior Jason Erwin.
Sophomore Nick Erwin pitched the first five innings of the game with sophomore Colton Donovan throwing the final two frames and picking up the win on the mound.
On April 16, Sherwood rolled to an 11-1 win over Parkrose in a game played at Parkrose High School.
Senior Travis Setere led the hitting attack, belting a pair of home runs, including a two-run shot in the seventh. Wade hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning.
Junior Troy Duppenthaler picked up the pitching win, giving up one unearned run and striking out six in six innings of work.
Sherwood's scheduled game with Glencoe on Tuesday was postponed due to rain. The teams were scheduled to play their series opener Wednesday night at Wilsonville. Results of the game weren't available when the Times went to press.
The teams will meet again today (Thursday) and Friday at Glencoe High School. Each of those games is slated to start at 4:30 p.m.
