Hillsboro, OR — The Camas Papermakers 18U Varsity Baseball team handily beat Columbia River, 10-0, in five innings Sunday night to win the 2017 Ad Rutschman Wood Bat Tournament.
The Papermakers went undefeated during the three-day tournament.
During the Championship game, the Papermakers took an early lead, 4-0, at the bottom of the first inning and stayed focus during the entire game. Ryan Potter pitched the entire game, not allowing a single run.
The boys hit well Sunday night. Jacob Trupp hit two deep into left field.
“We did a good job offensively,” said Head Coach, Stephen Short. “Our opponents didn’t play a real clean game, but we took advantage of it. Gavin Holley had a real good night tonight. We did a good job of running the bases and taking advantage of mistakes. Obviously Ryan Potter did a real nice job on the mound.”
The boys have been traveling extensively for the past few weeks, and placed a close second in the Firecracker Tournament in West Linn a week ago.
Their next home game is July 11 against Reynolds, and will then travel to Kelso to play a Legion team. Camas will then host a few games, play in another tournament, and then play in a big GSL tournament after that.
“The GSL tournament will be a good test for us to see really where we’re at,” said Short. “We will play some high level teams, and that will give us a good indication of where we are. We’re focused on getting better and enjoying our time together. I feel like that’s happened.”
