A sixth-inning rally by La Grande fell just short Tuesday, allowing Pendleton to return home with a narrow 3-2 non-league victory at Optimist Field.

The Tigers’ four errors were the big difference Tuesday, according to La Grande coach Mark Lanman.

“Two of the three runs were unearned,” Lanman said after the game. 

Jake Chamberlain led the Tigers with two hits and one RBI, while Tyson Wicklander, Josh Gambill  and J. C. Rogers each had one hit. Eli Wisdom got an RBI in the sixth inning when his sacrifice pushed Brandon Cedarholm across the plate for the first run. Chamberlain’s single scored Gambill moments later.

On the mound, Lanman went with three pitchers, starting with Eli Childs. In three innings, Childs struck out three and walked one, but also was hurt by errors in the first and third innings — when Pendleton scored all of its runs.

Tanner Stremcha went to the mound in the fourth inning, striking out two before giving way to Mitch Workinger for the final inning.

The Buckaroos took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Conner Johnson scored on Ian Rivera’s double. 

The visitors made it a 3-0 lead in the third inning, when Boots Pond opened with a double. Pond scored moments later when Johnson slapped a single and picked up the RBI. Johnson would later score when  Grant Klopmen hit the ball and a double-play attempt was bobbled at second by La Grande.

Pendleton’s Tyler Stewart had five strikeouts and three walks in six innings on the mound. “He got a little tired in the sixth. I thought he did exceptionally well,” said Pendleton coach Greg Whitten. “It was a good high school baseball game — a close game. Both teams played well.”

The Bucks left with an 8-5 record.

La Grande’s record fell to 6-5. The Tigers will host Ontario in a Saturday doubleheader, starting at 1 p.m. 

 in a Greater Oregon League doubleheader. The first game starts at 1 p.m. at Optimist Field.
