Wolves beat Tide to continue win streak


Tualatin moves to 6-1 in league play with the 4-2 victory

HILLSBORO — Things just seem to be getting better and better for the Tualatin High School baseball team.

The Timberwolves picked up their third straight win, and sixth victory in the past seven games, but notching a 4-2 win over Glencoe in a Pacific Conference baseball game played Tuesday at Glencoe High School.

“Since our Arizona trip (over Spring Break), the guys have had a different look in their eyes,” Tualatin coach Adam Strachan said. “We’re playing good, solid, fundamental baseball. I like it.”

With Tuesday’s win, the Wolves moved to 6-1 in Pacific Conference play (10-5 overall), keeping them in a tie with Hillsboro for first place in the league standings.

Glencoe dropped to 2-5 in league play and to 5-11 on the season with the loss.

Sophomore first baseman Jacob Bennett helped power Tualatin to the win over the Crimson Tide.

With the Wolves trailing 1-0 in the fourth inning, Bennett belted an RBI double to right field to tie the game at 1-1. He then led off the sixth inning with another double, and he ended up scoring in the inning.

Senior Connor Scott picked up the pitching victory on Tuesday. In a complete-game performance, he struck out seven batters while giving up just one earned run.

Prior to Tuesday’s win at Glencoe, the Wolves posted a 6-0 victory over Forest Grove in a game played last Thursday at Tualatin High School.

Scott also picked up the pitching victory in that game, needing just 83 pitches to get the complete-game shutout.

“He pounded the zone with all four of his pitches,” Strachan said.

Junior Jake Gellos had both a double and a triple in that contest to lead the offense.

Tualatin also got a 15-6 win over the Vikings in a league game played April 10 at Forest Grove High School.

Juniors Brandon Shroyer and Cooper Brunner each hit a home run for the Wolves in that victory, and senior Jon Fishback went 3 for 3 at the plate. Senior Jack McDonnell and sophomore Karter Cook combined to pitch Tualatin to the win.

Tualatin was slated to host Glencoe in a league game on Wednesday. Results of that game weren’t available when the Times went to press.
