CLATSKANIE — The defending Class 2A baseball state champions picked up right where they left off, as the Knappa Loggers opened the season Monday in a nonleague game at Clatskanie.

The Loggers did not have to stage a seven-run, seventh inning rally in this one, as Knappa cruised to a five-inning, 19-0 win over the Tigers.

Dale Takalo, Reuben Cruz and Mason Hoover combined to strike out 12 batters, with two hits allowed.

Offensively, Cruz belted a two-run homer in the fourth inning, Takalo had a pair of doubles, Shaun Lackey was 2-for-3 and Logan Bartlett added a double.

Clatskanie pitchers gave up 11 hits, walked 13 and hit four batters.

Knappa is scheduled to play Friday at St. Paul.
