Pacific Tech baseball team

The Pacific Tech baseball team, part of the Lower Columbia Baseball Club, features a pair of Seaside players: Riley Kuhl (No. 13) and Justin Morris (No. 19).

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.

Pacific Tech went 3-0 July 18, which included wins over Parkside Baseball (15-9), as Kuhl was 3-for-5 with a double and five RBIs, Strange was 1-for-3, drew three walks and scored four runs, and Lindstrom had one hit and was hit by pitch three times; and a 6-3 victory over Nipp’s Burgers (another Lower Columbia AA team).
