Errors plague Legacy Legends

The La Grande Legacy Legends reached the semifinals of the Walla Walla Tournament in Walla Walla, Wash., before losing to the hosts 10-5 and falling 6-3 to Bellevue, Wash., in the third place game.

Despite outhitting Walla Walla 13-6 in the semifinals, the Legends could not recover from seven costly defensive errors.

“I’m very happy with how we hit and pitched over the weekend,” coach Mike Wisdom said. “We have to work on our defense and make sure we teach the kids how to stay focused and consistently prepared on defense in every game we play.”

Only one of the 10 runs Tanner Stremcha gave up pitching for the Legends in the semifinals was earned, as Stremcha threw five strikeouts while giving up four walks and six hits.

The Legends opened the tournament on Friday with a 9-2 loss to Asotin County, Wash., but quickly recovered with a 12-0 win over Washington Rush later that day and an 11-4 victory Saturday over the Yakima, Wash., Beatles to advance to the semis.

In La Grande’s first victory, the team combined for 19 hits, as Tyson Wicklander, Eli Wisdom, Jake Chamberlain and Kurt Boyd all got three hits. Wisdom led the Tigers offensively with five RBI. 

In the semifinal loss to Walla Walla, Wicklander, Chamberlain and Childs all had two hits, while Drew Hively had three hits and the lone home run of the tournament for the Legends.

La Grande is now 11-9 on the season, having lost six out of their last eight games. The Legends will be back in action at the Spokane Tournament in Spokane, Wash., beginning Friday.
