The La Grande baseball team picked up a sweep of McLoughlin Saturday in Greater Oregon League play.

The Tigers took the opener, 4-0, before winning the second game, 5-2.

The win improves La Grande to 6-2 in the GOL and sets up a showdown with first-place Ontario (8-0) Friday.

“Our pitching was real good. Our hitting came through. We just competed real well offensively and defensively,” LHS head coach Mark Lanman said.

La Grande broke open a scoreless ball game with a three-run fifth inning.

The Tigers added another run in the sixth.

That was enough run support for Kaleb White to get the win.

White went 5-1/3 innings, allowing just three hits and striking out nine.

Mitch Workinger got the save, striking out two in 1-2/3 innings of work.

Garett Avila had a double and two RBIs, while Josh Gambill added one RBI. White also had a double.

The Tigers and Pioneers were in a 2-2 tie in the second game when
La Grande took the lead with a run in the bottom of the third. LHS added two more runs in the fifth inning before going on to earn the win.

Gambill pitched three innings to start the game, but it was Avila who got the win, going four innings and striking out seven.

Jake Chamberlain, Tyson Wicklander and Brandon Cedarholm all had RBIs. Wicklander and Chamberlain both had two hits.

“I’m proud of the kids. I think they’re going in the right direction,”
Lanman said.

LHS will now prepare to host Ontario Friday for a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. at Optimist Field.

Ontario swept Baker Saturday and has won eight straight games.

OHS swept La Grande earlier this year.
