Dungies take series over Keizer

NEWPORT — In the first complete league, three-game series of the season, the Mid Coast Dungies accomplished what has been a rare feat in the previous two seasons — winning a league series. With an 8-2 win on Sunday, July 1, and a doubleheader split on Monday (an 8-1 win and a 6-3 loss) against the Keizer Crushers, the Dungies secured their second series win since 2016 and put an end to the two-game skid they were on entering the series. “We put on a pretty good offensive display (on Sunday) and in the first game today,” said head coach Taylor Plesha. “It’s kinda deflating to not sweep a team that we thought we should sweep but really good starting pitching, Bridge struggled early today but then kept us in it and did his job.”

Postlewait bring experience

When Oregon State’s Cadyn Grenier popped up behind the first base line with two outs in the ninth inning, Jake Postlewait grabbed something and tossed it across his living room thinking that the Beavers had lost to the Arkansas Razorbacks in the championship series of the College World Series. The devastation of watching his team come up just short of a national title started to set in. “Everybody started crying,” said Postlewait, an assistant coach Mid-Coast Dungies’ staff. “It was one of those deals where that’s not how you want to end it, at least get the ball in play, make them make a play, even a routine play would have been better than a popup in foul territory.”
