    East Valley rallies to avoid sweep after Ellensburg clinches CWAC title

    YAKIMA, Wash. — East Valley entered the regular season’s final weekend with a chance to spoil Ellensburg’s CWAC title bid for the second straight season.

    Coach Jesse Benedetti said it felt like a playoff atmosphere as his young Red Devils went toe-to-toe with the defending state champions, providing a rare challenge for a team accustomed to blowing away opponents. Despite some costly mental mistakes coach Todd Gibson said need to be corrected, the Bulldogs still did enough to earn a doubleheader split and a share of first place thanks to a 2-1, eight-inning win followed by a 7-6 loss.

    “I told them ‘hey, we’re 17-3 and everybody will wonder why you didn’t win this game’ but in the end it won’t matter,” Gibson said. “We had to win one, wanted to win two.”

    They looked well on their way to yet another sweep after Brady Helgeson’s one-out single scored Trace Townsend to give Ellensburg a 6-1 lead in the second inning. But East Valley senior Zach Himes, who drove in a run with a two-out bunt single in the first, said the memory of Selah erasing a 6-1 deficit to beat the Red Devils earlier this season provided some hope.

    That quickly turned into confidence as right fielder Jared Sires caught a fly ball and threw a runner out at home for a double play, then the bats finally came alive. Five straight hits sparked a five-run second inning, capped off by Brock Albrecht’s game-tying single.

    “That was a gut check time and (we showed) a lot of character, so I was impressed,” Benedetti said. “We know it’s going to be a long game and these guys hit well, so we know we’re never out of any game.”

    Himes scored the game-winning run on an error in the fourth inning as relief pitcher Nate Uriostegui settled in to hold Ellensburg to just four hits in his last five innings of work. Two of those came in the seventh, when catcher Max Hagler caught a runner trying to steal second with a runner on third and just one out to preserve the win.

    The Bulldogs generally thrive on forcing opponents into difficult situations and taking advantage of every opportunity, just as they did to prevail in Saturday’s opener behind a strong outing from Tyler Polacek. Gage Gibson’s third hit of the game to lead off the eighth inning proved to be the only baserunner Ellensburg would need, as he advanced to second on a bunt, moved to third on a passed ball, and eventually scored on Conner Wing’s sacrifice fly.

    “He’s struggled all year and what we said is he’ll come around in the playoffs,” Todd Gibson said of Gage. “He’s been right behind Xander (Orejudos) and Bryce (Helgeson) in the playoffs in terms of hits.”

    Gage added two more hits and scored twice more in Game 2, but East Valley’s prolific offense had the answer after scoring a season-low one run in back-to-back losses. Five different players contributed at least two hits, highlighted by Chase Oldham’s double to the centerfield wall.

    Gibson hopes the end of a 14-game winning streak could serve as a good wakeup call for the No. 1 seed heading into next week’s district tournament, The Bulldogs split a doubleheader with co-champs Selah and own the tiebreaker thanks to a preseason draw.

    Ellensburg (17-3 overall, 16-2 CWAC) wouldn’t share the title without help from East Valley, which beat the Vikings 3-2 two weeks ago. Two other losses dropped the Red Devils down to third place.

    “We have a win against everyone (in the CWAC), so we know we can beat anyone,” Himes said. “Then at the beginning of the season we got a win against Burlington-Edison, they’re top in the state too, so we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves.”

    They’ll play a loser-out game at home Wednesday against No. 6 seed Othello, with the winner advancing to play at Selah in next Saturday’s semifinals. Ellensburg will host the other semifinal against the winner Wednesday’s Prosser-Ephrata matchup.

    District Loser-Out

    Picture2.jpg

    East Valley baseball out at home in
    CWAC district tournament

    YAKIMA, Wash. -- Somehow the ghosts of postseason past found their way back to Loftus Field on Wednesday.

    And they were no more friendly to the Red Devils than a year ago.

    Othello’s Josh Calzadillas pitched a four-hitter and the sixth-seeded Huskies took full advantage of a brief but decisive rash of miscues to earn a 7-1 victory and oust the third-seeded Red Devils from the CWAC district tournament.

    Last year, in the same loser-out game with the same seeds on the same field, East Valley succumbed to Quincy 1-0.

    “That’s our league. One day, one game — everybody’s got a good shot,” said EV coach Jesse Benedetti. “Last year was really tough and this one is, too.”

    These teams split in the regular season and Wednesday’s starters — EV’s Chase Oldham and Calzadillas — were dominant on their home fields. Oldham was especially sharp against the Huskies in March, earning a 3-0 shutout with 10 strikeouts.

    One of four seniors, Oldham was just fine through three innings as Othello scratched out a 2-1 lead. But a series of three infield errors led to three unearned runs in the fourth, and suddenly the deficit was 5-1.

    And Calzadillas — a first-team all-leaguer — settled in, holding East Valley to one single over the final four inings.

    “That was big,” Benedetti said of the fourth frame. “We’re trying to hold it at a one-run game and we’re not exactly hitting the cover off the ball. After that, our guys pressed a little and (Calzadillas) was tough.”

    Othello managed to chase Oldham with the bases loaded and one out in the fifth, but Zach Himes took the mound from centerfield and kept the margin at 5-1.

    But the Huskies, who defeated East Valley 8-3 a month ago with Calzadillas pitching, broke through for two runs in the sixth on three hits, including their fourth double of the day.

    Unfortunately for the Red Devils, it was a quiet way to end a 15-6 season, which included wins over three teams ranked in the top six — Selah, Ellensburg and Burlington-Edison.

    “I’m sure some teams will be glad to see us out,” the EV coach said. “We’re fairly young with just the four seniors, so we hope to learn and grow from this.”

    Othello (11-10) advances to Saturday’s semifinals and will play at Selah (18-2) at 1 p.m.

    Ephrata defeated Prosser 13-3 in Wednesday’s other first-round game, sending the Tigers (15-6) to Ellensburg (17-3) on Saturday.
