The Pacific Techs, a AA American Legion team for the Lower Columbia Baseball Club, ran their season record to 17-1 with another perfect weekend on the diamond earlier this month.
Pacific Tech won five games without a loss at the Dave Orzel Haymaker Memorial tournament in Winlock, Washington.
The team capped the weekend July 19 in the tournament’s championship game with a 3-0 win over the Vancouver Cardinals’ 18U “Blue” team.
Pacific Tech had six hits, highlighted by a 3-for-4 effort from Kolten Lindstrom, one of two Pacifc players from Naselle. Lindstrom had two doubles and drove in a run.
Seaside’s Justin Morris was 1-for-2 with one RBI and scored a run, and was hit by a pitch. His teammate with the Gulls, Riley Kuhl, was also hit by a pitch.
To start the weekend, Pacific Tech posted a 4-1 win over Vancouver, in which Naselle’s Joey Strange was 2-for-4 and Kuhl was 2-for-3. Morris closed out the game on the mound.
The Techs followed with a 6-4 victory July 17 over the Rivals, as Morris had two of Pacific’s seven hits.
