La Grande continues quest to become champs

The La Grande 9-10-year-old All-Stars earned a 2-1 victory over Medford at the Little League State Tournament in Bend Sunday.

La Grande took a 2-0 lead in the third inning after Cole Jorgensen hit a two-run RBI. Medford cut the lead to one in the fifth inning, but Sergio Staab threw four strikeouts without giving up a hit in the final two innings to seal the victory.

“Jorgensen has been hitting the cover off the ball lately,” La Grande coach Brian Bell said. “We struggled a bit against slower pitching, but I think the kids will be able to adjust well.”

Bell said Jorgensen has been the catalyst for La Grande’s offense thus far, as he’s gone 7-for-7 at the plate with a perfect on-base percentage. On Friday, La Grande opened the tournament with a 15-0 win over West Salem in four innings. The three players at the top of La Grande’s lineup, Anthony Fitzgerald, Devin Carson and Braden Bell each scored three runs. After tallying 16 hits and 13 walks against West Salem, La Grande found it much more difficult to reach base against Medford, hitting safely on six occasions.

“Hitting is definitely our biggest strength right now,” Bell said. “We need to get the kids confident again to hit the ball hard.”

La Grande will continue its push to win the state tournament tonight as it faces Clackmas South at 6 p.m.
