Nations Powers Grays Harbor Past Vigilantes
Joel Nations had four runs batted in to lead Grays Harbor past the Vigilantes, 6-2, Friday, at Olympic Stadium in Hoquiam, Wash.
After Mike Rendina hit his 19th home run, a two-run shot, in the bottom of the first for the Gulls (13-10), Grays Harbor broke it open when Nations hit a three-run double in the bottom of the sixth to make it, 5-1.
Although Sam Taylor hit two home runs for the Vigilantes (11-12), his teammates managed only four singles against winning pitcher Wayne Hoy (4-5). Hoy gave up six hits, walked two and struck out four.
