Offensive spark not enough for Sunnyside in 21-7 defeat

YAKIMA - Their field unplayable due to a broken water line, the Grizzly baseball team moved yesterday's game against Eisenhower to Yakima's Parker Field.

In the process, Sunnyside broke out the bats Tuesday night but still fell 21-7 to the Cadets.

Ike did most of its damage with an 11-run outburst in the fifth inning. The Cadets' rally benefitted from four walks issued by Sunnyside pitching in the inning.

For the game, Ike pounded 17 hits.

For its part, Sunnyside had one of its more productive days at the plate yesterday. The Grizzlies tallied a single run in the second inning, two more in the third frame and four runs in the fifth frame.

Trey Serl delivered a pair of clutch hits for Sunnyside, batting in three runs. Damon Hurst also came up with a timely base hit to bring in two runs.

Also delivering at the plate for the Grizzlies were Sam Pike, two hits and an RBI, and Mason Kupp, a team-high three hits.

Sunnyside reached double-digits in base hits for the game with 10 smacks.

Serl and Sam Romero shared pitching duties for Sunnyside yesterday.

Yesterday's contest was to have been senior night for Sunnyside (0-13, 2-16), which will return to Parker Field this coming Saturday to close out the regular season with a twin bill against Ike.
