Lane rallies in ninth, then sweeps Bellevue
Tielar Murray scored on Hank Forrest’s sacrifice fly to center field with one out in the seventh inning as Lane rallied past Bellevue 2-1 in the opener of a baseball doubleheader Saturday, and two Titans pitchers combined on a five-inning no-hitter to win the second 13-1.
With the Titans down 1-0 entering the ninth, Lane’s Donovan Baldocchi scored on a bases-loaded walk to Jayden Hanna with one out to tie the score.
Tony Henricksen had given the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead in the third when he singled, took second on a groundout, stole third and scored on an error by Lane starter Dillon Larsen.
The Titans’ Jack Gordon (1-0) retired the final five Bellevue batters for the win. Larsen allowed three hits in 5 1/3 innings.
In the second game, Jesse Davis (1-1) threw the first four innings for the victory, striking out seven and walking six, and Harrison Grow got the final three outs despite walking two.
Forrest, Murray and Jimmy McDonald each had two hits and two runs to lead Lane, and Jackson Soto had a double and three RBIs.
