BEND, Ore. — Four representatives of the Walla Walla Sweets saw action with South Division All-Stars in the West Coast League mid-summer classic here on Tuesday, but the North claimed a 14-1 victory.
The North already had an 11-0 lead before the South tallied its lone run in the bottom of the fifth inning when Walla Walla’s Justin Folz was hit by a pitch, advanced to second base on an error, third on a single, and then raced home on a groundout.
The Sweets’ Patrick Caulfield started as the South leadoff hitter, and managed to get on base in the seventh inning with a walk before he was forced out in a double play.
Walla Walla right-handed Reid Sebby pitched a rough second inning in which three South errors opened the door for a nine-run (seven unearned) North rally.
Sweets lefty Travis Craven, of Whitman College, pitched as 1-2-3 eight inning.
The Sweets also had Caulfield competing in the Home Run Derby here on Monday.
Matthew Christian, of the Port Angeles Lefties, won the contest.
