Congratulations to KLER’s Maniac Pizza Factory Player of the Game winners: Silas Naranjo and Steven Bradbury!
Monday’s two baseball games were polar opposites-- Orofino was rolling at the plate against St. Maries, and one of the shining stars of the opener was Silas Naranjo, who went 2 for 2 with an impressive triple over the head of the Lumberjacks center fielder. He also drew a walk in the 3rd and scored twice, helping the Maniacs to a 15-3 rout of St. Maries.
The nightcap was the polar opposite of the opener as Orofino faced stingy pitching from Grangeville, and struggled to get things going at the plate. Down 12-1 in the top of the fifth with two outs, with the Maniacs down to their final out in need of two runs to extend the ballgame.
Bradbury delivered a line shot to left center for a double to keep the hope alive for Orofino, scoring the very next at bat on a towering double from Brayden Turcott.
For their exceptional efforts, our player of the game winners will receive a certificate good for a personal pizza and a medium soft drink of their choice from our good friends at the Pizza Factory Orofino! Go Maniacs!
