HILLSBORO — Astoria pitchers Carter Wallace and Tyler Lyngstad limited Forest Grove to just four hits, and the Fishermen overcame four errors of their own in a 6-2 win over the Vikings Wednesday, on the final day of the Glencoe Spring Break Tournament.
Astoria’s early-morning win at Hillsboro Stadium concluded three games in three days for the Fishermen, who finished the tournament 1-2.
Wallace started and allowed four hits in three innings, before giving way to Lyngstad in the fourth inning.
Astoria held a 3-2 lead by then, as Wallace led off the top of the second with a single, and later scored on a steal of home. Olaf Englund had a single later in the inning that brought in Jared Lucore.
Trey Hageman had two of Astoria’s seven hits, and Englund drove in a pair of runs.
