    At the end of three innings, the Klamath Cardinals seemed well on their way to a Senior Babe Ruth World Series championship. Chase Fernlund reached on an error. Cody Dykstra and Drew Seater singled to load the bases in the bottom of the third. A grand slam by Jesse Hilyard staked the Cardinals to a 4-0 lead over the Alabama Raw Dogs. That however, is where the highlight reel hit a snag.

    The Raw Dogs came back to score three runs in the top of the fourth inning, taking advantage of a two-out error by Klamath Falls.

    Alabama capitalized on another error in the sixth inning, putting up three more runs for a 6-4 lead.

    And in the seventh? Yes, the Raw Dogs were helped by another Cardinal error, as they sealed the win with three more runs, 9-4.

    Josh Overstreet started and took the loss for the Cardinals (5 IP, 6 R, ER, 7 H, 0 BB, K). Tevin Cadola pitched two innings (3 R, 0 ER, 4 H, BB, 0 K). (more…)

     style=The Klamath Falls Cardinals advanced to the Senior Babe Ruth World Series championship, with a 1-0 win over a team from San Gabriel, CA on Thursday night, in Ephrata, WA. The Cardinals will play the Alabama Raw Dogs at 1:00 pm on Thursday for the title. The Raw Dogs defeated Team Cape Cod earlier in the day, 1-0, in eight innings.

    The Cardinals’ lone run came on a big fly by Willie Howard in the bottom of the second inning. Howard was 2/3 in the game. Jesse Hilyard notched the complete game shutout on the mound (7 IP, 5 H, 2 BB, 3 K). It was the third shutout of the tourney for Klamath Falls.

    Cade Parker was the only Siskiyou County player to see action against San Gabriel, and went 0-3 at the plate. It was the first time in five games that he did not reach base. Parker has scored four runs in the tourney and driven in three. He was named Player of the Game against Tri-County, TX, when he went 2/2 with a run and a pair of RBIs. Parker will be a senior at Yreka High School in the fall. (more…)
