Maniacs defeat Priest River in soggy match-up

   Orofino cleaned up a wet field and managed to play - and win - one game of a scheduled doubleheader against Priest River March 26. The Maniacs defeated the Spartans 11-4.

   Jesse Adams threw a solid six innings on the mound for Orofino, and Priest River walked seven batters and hit another in a crucial fifth inning that saw Orofino score 10 runs.

   "Kind of tells you the story right there," Maniacs coach Bo Cummings said of the free passes.

   Michael Welch went 2-for-4 with three RBI for Orofino, which will play a doubleheader today against Priest River after only getting in the one game.

BASEBALL
Orofino, Priest River split doubleheader

   Orofino struggled against Priest River starter Kyle Bradbury, losing the first game of a doubleheader 6-1 on March 27. Bradbury hurled a no-hitter, while striking out 14 Maniacs. He allowed six base runners on four walks and two hit batters.

   The Maniacs went on to defeat Priest River 13-3, invoking the 10-run mercy rule in the second game.

   The Maniacs scored 11 runs in the first three innings, showing much better patience at the plate as they accumulated 10 walks and four hit batters.

   Junior first baseman Ethan Gilliam put on a display at the plate, collecting four hits and six RBI.

   Gilliam blasted a homer to left-center that invoked the 10-run rule. The huge shot ranks "right up there with any I have seen," said 33rd-year Orofino coach Bo Cummings.

   Michael Welch collected the complete-game victory, striking out eight and allowing three walks and one hit batter.
