Miners made one look easy against St. Mary’s, but two was a bit tougher

Yreka v St

The Yreka Miners swept the St. Mary’s Crusaders at Hibbard field on Saturday afternoon.

Yreka made it look easy in game-one, taking a 3-0 lead in the home half of the first inning, and never looking back. Brandon Swenson singled with one down, and moved to second when Derek Howard reached on an error. With two gone, Dylan O’Gorman smacked an opposite field double, scoring both runners. O’Gorman advanced to third on the throw, and a bit later came home on a wild pitch.

The score remained the same until the fourth inning. Anthony Esparza got the offense rolling again with a one-out base hit. Parker Sanders singled. Both players moved up a base, when the ball became lodged in the catcher’s gear. Cade Parker took a stroll. Swenson received a free pass, and Esparza scored. Howard launched one to left field that didn’t quite make it over the fence, but it was more than deep enough to score Sanders from third. Parker and Swenson executed a double steal. Parker came home on a wild pitch. O’Gorman picked up RBI number-three for the game with a base hit that scored Swenson, making it 7-0.

Yreka ended the contest in the sixth inning. Parker led off with a walk, stole second, went to third on a ground out, and scored on a two-out single from Fahredin Nushi. O’Gorman walked. A single by Aaron Durney plated Nushi. The Crusader second baseman couldn’t handle a ball hit by Caleb Gardner, and O’Gorman crossed the plate to end the game via the 10-run mercy rule, 10-0.

Casey Hoff started on the hill for Yreka, and notched the win.

In game-two, Yreka jumped out to a 6-0 lead at the end of three innings, and appeared to have things well in hand, except they didn’t. (more…)

Miners take care of business against Pirates

Yreka v Phoenix Front copy

YrekaTransferNewThe Yreka Miners took care of business against the Phoenix Pirates on Thursday, with a workman-like 4-1 victory.

Derek Howard started and went five innings for the win, giving up no runs, five hits and a walk, while fanning nine Pirates. The Miner defense was solid behind Howard, committing no errors and turning one double-play.

Fehredin Nushi continued to drive in runs with three RBIs, bringing his team-leading total to 25 this season. He went 2/3 at the plate. Howard was also 2/3 and scored twice. Parker Sanders drove in a run and was 2/3.

The Miners put up two runs in the first inning. Cade Parker led off and reached on a third strike passed ball. He then promptly swiped second base. Dylan O’Gorman reached on a fielder’s choice that erased Parker. A double by Howard moved O’Gorman to third base. O’Gorman and Howard found their way home on a single by Nushi.

Greyson Plucker singled with one out in the fourth inning, and continued on to second base when the Pirate center fielder misplayed the ball. Plucker advanced to third on a passed ball. Parker Sanders plated Plucker with a base hit, extending the Miner advantage to 3-0. (more…)

Gabe had a pretty good day


Former Yreka Miner baseball standout Gabe Durney had a pretty good day on Wednesday, hammering his first career college home run for the Fort Scott Community College Greyhounds. The dinger was part of a six-RBI effort in a doubleheader against Baker University’s JV squad. Durney also had three doubles, scored three times and went 4/5 at the plate. As a bonus, his parents Rebecca and John Durney were in attendance. Fort Scott won both games, 11-1 and 19-0.

In nine games this season for the Greyhounds, Durney is hitting an even .300 with a .391 on base percentage and a .600 slugging percentage. Roaming the outfield, he has a .929 fielding percentage.

At Yreka, Durney was the Northern Athletic League MVP his junior season when he hit .449, with five home runs, 36 RBIs, and 39 runs scored in 33 games. He also stole nine bases in 11 attempts.

“The biggest difference playing at the college level compared to the high school level is the competitiveness of each team. No matter what lead you have in any part of the games, the teams continue to fight back, pitching good and hitting the ball hard,” said Durney.

While there is a notable difference between the two levels, Durney took something he learned in Yreka from Coach Jason Freitas with him to Fort Scott, Kansas. (more…)
