Poor weather forced another location change for the Astoria baseball team, as Wednesday’s game at Valley Catholic was moved to CMH Field.
And the Fishermen are certainly making good use of their back-up home field, where they’ve now played nine of their 12 total games.
Astoria is also looking unbeatable in their home on the hill, where the Fishermen pounded the Valiants 8-0 to improve to 5-0 in Cowapa League play, 10-2 overall.
For the second day in a row, Astoria scored all the runs it would need in the first inning, as Samboy Tuimato belted a two-run homer on an 0-1 count in the first inning.
A home run by Fridtjof Fremstad highlighted a four-run fourth inning, while starting pitcher Jackson Arnsdorf took care of the rest, allowing just three hits with five strikeouts and one walk.
The No. 2-ranked Fishermen have already moved today’s game with winless Tillamook (0-5) to CMH Field, with a 5 p.m. start.
