La Grande 16-and-under squad finishes with doubleheader sweep
The first inning of the opening game of La Grande’s doubleheader against Milton-Freewater Monday was literally a walk in the park.
In a half inning that took over 40 minutes to complete, the Mud Dogs scored nine runs, four of which came off walks with an additional two coming off wild pitches. As a result, the Mud Dogs only needed five innings to defeat the Blazers by a 14-1 margin in the first game. La Grande completed the sweep with a 9-3 win in the nightcap.
