  • Ashland received two outstanding pitching performances by Kyle Milgram and Caleb Bell but couldn't take advantage as Grants Pass swept the Area 4 doubleheader 4-1 and 3-2 Tuesday at North Mountain Park.
    Milgram held the Diggers to one earned run on five hits while striking out four in six solid innings, but took the loss in Game 1 thanks in part to a dropped fly ball in the sixth. The miscue allowed the go-ahead run plus an insurance run to score for Grants Pass, and another came home on a passed ball.
    Chris D'Amico picked up the win for the Diggers after limiting Ashland to one run on four hits in 61/3 innings.
    Matt Flynn provided the Pilots' only run when hit a single to drive in Bell in the bottom of the first.
    Drew Bjorn and Spencer Crume had two hits apiece to lead the Diggers.
    In Game 2, Bell held the Diggers to three runs on five hits while striking out four but didn't get much run support as Ashland fell to 7-13 overall, 2-8 in Area 4.
    Grants Pass pitcher Brennen Lauffenburger held the Pilots to two runs on six hits in a complete-game effort.
    Andrew Sherrier's RBI single scored for Grants Pass what proved to be the winning run in the top of the fourth.
    Ashland cut into the lead in the bottom of the inning when Bell delivered a two-run single, but that was as close as the Pilots got.
    Jack Garmendia was 2-for-3 to lead the Diggers.
