LEBANON — Too many free bases for the opponent hurt Lebanon in a 12-6 loss to visiting Corvallis on Tuesday in a Mid-Willamette Conference baseball game.
The Warriors (4-9, 2-6) allowed eight walks and hit two batters, including five bases on balls in a seven-run fifth inning — three straight with the bases loaded — that helped the Spartans (12-2, 7-1) take a 12-0 lead.
“So we helped them a lot. Our pitching wasn’t sharp and our defense didn’t help either,” said Lebanon coach Jeff Stolsig, whose team took Monday’s opener in the three-game series 5-2 at Corvallis. “Today we were way too generous, and it really it looked like there was only one team that wanted to play.”
Leaf Cripe had a grand slam as the Warriors came back with six runs in the bottom of the fifth. Cody Johnson added a RBI sacrifice fly and Jesse Gregory a run-scoring single. Teammates Curtis Jones and Adam Rappe had two hits apiece in the game.
Lebanon is scheduled to host the series finale Friday.
