Grizzlies slide past KU

Charlie Sebrell tossed a five-inning no-hitter and Sam Gaviglio followed with a one-hit shutout through five innings in Ashland's doubleheader sweep of Klamath Union Saturday at North Mountain Park. The Grizzlies won both games 10-0; both were shortened by the 10-run mercy rule.

Sebrell struck out six in five innings and was three outs away from a perfect game, but yielded a walk with no outs in the top of the fifth. He then picked off the runner at first base.

Lewis Sebrell and Ian Kendall each had two-run home runs in the second and fifth innings, respectively.

Max Gordon, Owen Baldrica and Luke Jannusch each had two hits and racked up seven RBIs combined.

In the nightcap, Gaviglio surrendered just one hit with no walks in five innings. He also struck out eight before Tyler Killeen spelled him for a perfect sixth inning.

Gaviglio also had a bases-clearing triple in the fourth to give Ashland (11-2, 4-0 SSC) all the cushion it needed. Baldrica and Gaviglio each went 2-for-3 in Game 2.

At Eagle Point, coaches picked Crater and Ashland as co-favorites in the battle for the Southern Sky Conference crown this season.

After Saturday, you can pencil in Eagle Point to that list of contenders.

The Eagles scored a 9-1 victory in the opener of an SSC doubleheader against Ashland High ace pitcher Bella Pribyl. The Grizzlies rebounded for a 2-1 triumph in the nightcap to salvage a split.

Eagle Point (9-4, 2-2 SSC), which split an SSC twin bill with Crater last Saturday, had the bases loaded with one out in the seventh inning of Game 2, only to watch as Pribyl struck out the final two batters to end the contest.

"A split is nice but maybe we should have had a sweep," said Eagle Point coach Keith Williams. "Considering how the day went and how we hit the ball, I definitely think a sweep was possible."

The Eagles had eight hits off Pribyl in Game — and out-hit the Grizzlies 14-8 over both contests.

Jamie Paxton ripped a three-run home run to cap a four-run outburst in the third inning of the opener. Her homer, the first of the season for the junior shortstop, put the Eagles on top 6-0 at the time.

Katie Jolliffe led Eagle Point with two hits in Game 1, while MacKenzie Re had two RBIs.

Samantha Gilbert belted a solo home run in the fifth to account for Ashland's only run.

In the nightcap, Gilbert came around to score a pair of unearned runs for the Grizzlies (14-2, 3-1 SSC).

Pribyl rebounded to strike out 10 in the nightcap.

"She was a lot sharper in the second game," said Williams. "Her rise ball was working better and she got us to chase some things.

"To get roughed up like she did in the first game and come back shows what kind of mental toughness she has."

Jen Fernandes had a pair of hits for the Eagles in Game 2.
