  • Gianni Pippa-Baker was 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs to lead Ashland, but the Grizzlies sabotaged their own chances by committing nine errors in a 19-9 nonconference loss to Mazama on Tuesday at North Mountain Park.
    McKenna Read (2-for-4, two RBIs) and Teresa Lehman (2-for-5) also came through at the plate for the Grizzlies (4-14), but Mazama used a nine-run seventh to pull away. Only eight of Mazama's runs were earned.
    Brittani Stocke was 2-for-5 with four RBIs and two runs, and Diane Miller 2-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs for Mazama (13-9).
    Ashland scored six runs on three hits and a walk in the bottom of the third to go up 6-2. Pippa-Baker and Read hit back-to-back two-run doubles to highlight the rally, which also included a hit to short by Georgia Williams that was booted and led to two more runs.
    The Vikings scored two in the fourth and three in the fifth, with Jordan Krauss' two-run single up the middle giving the visitors the lead for good, 7-6. Mazama tacked on three more — on just one hit — in the sixth, then erupted with seven hits in the seventh, including a pair of two-run singles by Stocke.
    Ashland next faces Southern Oregon Hybrid 5A rival Eagle Point on Saturday at Eagle Point. The Grizzlies need to sweep in order to capture the league crown.

    Two weeks after losing a no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning Ashland senior Carter Glick eased at least some of that heartache by tossing a five-inning no-no on senior day.
    Glick's nearly flawless performance led the Grizzlies to a 10-0 victory over Mazama, Tuesday at North Mountain Park.
