Legion sweeps Burley 11-8, 8-6 in twinbill

Twin Falls tournament coming up

Monday was a good day in the winning column for the Wood River American Legion baseball team. Wood River swept an Area C "A" doubleheader at Burley 11-8 and 8-6.

In the first game, righty Steve Hansen (2-1) earned the victory with relief help from Tyler Thiede. Wood River (9 hits) scored in each of the first three innings and built a 7-4 lead, then held on for the win.

Thiede (2 RBI) also excelled at the plate with three hits. Derek Abbott (3 RBI) added two hits for the winners.

In the nightcap, Thiede and Kenny Cardona combined to beat Burley 8-6. Wood River built an early 5-0 lead—striking first on a two-out single by Morgan Uhrig and RBI double by Thiede. Run-scoring hits by Ben Molyneux and Hansen helped built the lead to 5-0.

Wood River split a doubleheader at Shelley Friday.

Tyson Reynoso (2-0) pitched a five-inning five-hitter and beat the Russets 12-2 in the opener. Catcher Billy Kramer (2 hits, 3 RBI) cracked a two-run double in Wood River’s five-run first that set the tone.

Other contributors included Uhrig (3 hits, 2 SB, 2 RBI); Hansen (2 hits, 2 SB, 2 runs); Brady Femling (2 hits, 2 runs); and Huston Brashears (3 RBI).

A little flat, Wood River (6 hits) didn’t hit well in the nightcap and dropped a 5-4 decision in seven frames to Shelley. The Hailey squad dug itself a hole and nearly climbed out.

Trailing 5-1 in the sixth, Hailey scored three runs—the key blow a laser-like RBI triple by Hansen that drove home Femling. In the seventh, Reynoso’s leadoff single sparked a bases-loaded threat with Wood River a run down, but Cardona’s line shot to third was handled for the third out.

Cardona pitched three innings of scoreless relief that kept Hailey in the game, coach Eli Lloyd said. The loss went to starter Tyler Thiede (0-2), who went three-and-two-thirds.
