Earp powers Wolfpack to finals

The 12-and-under La Grande Wolfpack found more trouble than head coach Shane Frederick expected Tuesday, but managed to pull out a 9-5 victory over Milton-Freewater at the Pendleton Tournament semifinals.

“We did not play our best today,” Frederick said. “Milton-Freewater really came to play, but we were still able to find a way to win.”

With the Wolfpack clinging to a 6-4 lead in the fourth inning, Wyatt Earp came off the bench and instantly delivered, hitting a three-run homer that allowed La Grande to regain control.

“They battled back after we took a 2-0 lead in the first inning,” Frederick said. “Milton-Freewater had momentum, but after Wyatt hit the home run we had all the momentum back.”

Jameson Halsey gave what Frederick said was a great performance on the pitcher’s mound, throwing five strikeouts while giving up two walks in five innings.

However, Frederick said he was not happy with the team’s defense, which gave up five errors.

“Defense has normally been our strong point, but it wasn’t for us tonight,” Frederick said. “Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for the kids. I’m confident we’ll be ready for the championship game.”

The Wolfpack will play Pendleton tonight at 7 p.m. in the finals.
