The Fishermen opened the day with an easy “come-from-behind” victory over the Cheesemakers.

Tillamook actually held a 2-0 lead after one-half inning, before Astoria Ford jumped all over the Cheesemakers in the bottom of the first inning.

Astoria’s first six batters drew walks, and Manny Nelson had a bases-clearing hit to center field for a 6-0 lead.

Kyle Strange and Nick Strange followed with consecutive singles, and both scored on a two-run double to the fence by Joe Brawley.

By the time Tillamook recorded the first out, the Fishermen held a 12-0 lead. Astoria Ford sent 16 batters to the plate in the inning, and came away with five hits and eight walks.

The Fishermen tacked on two more runs in the second, with Kyle Strange scoring on a triple by his brother Nick, and Nick sprinting home on a sacrifice fly from Carter Wallace.

The slaughter continued in the third inning, as Ole Englund, Kyle Strange and Nick Strange had back-to-back-to-back run-scoring singles.

Nick Strange finished with a triple and two singles at the plate, while Wallace pitched the complete five innings, allowing just two hits and a walk with four strikeouts.
