Mountaineers Can’t Slow Down Chinook Offense in Loss


In a scheduled doubleheader Monday afternoon in Thurston County, the Rainier baseball team fell in back-to-back games, including a shortened second game, 12-8 and 13-5 to Kalama. 

The Mountaineers struggled to get outs, as Kalama scored in every inning of a 12-8 first game win in seven innings, totaling 10 hits and taking advantage of four Rainier errors. 

Gavin Owen went 2 for 4 with two RBIs with a run scored and Jake Meldrum went 1 for 2 with a 2-RBI double. 

In the second game, a 13-5, sunset-shortened loss, the Mountaineers gave up 12 runs to the Chinooks in the first inning and couldn’t make up the difference in the loss. 

Meldrum went 1 for 2 with a pair of RBIs to lead the way for the Mountaineers in Game 2. 

Rainier takes on Toledo on the road Friday for its next game.
