STAYTON — Jacob Dobmeier had all the right stuff on Thursday for Newport, allowing zero runs and besting Stayton, 6-0.
Newport outscored the Eagles 12-1 in their three-game sweep, the second triple-trouncing delivered by the No. 10 state-ranked Cubs. Sisters fell earlier by even more sizeable margins.
Newport, 10-2 overall, pulled off the big victory without ever scoring many runs in an inning. The most they posted was two in a stanza, beginning with Mitchell Johnson’s line drive single that drove Ryan Torres home in the fourth.
But all that really counted was that Stayton could barely connect with Dobmeier’s fastball. Throwing 90 times, he fanned 14 of 24 batters on 66 strikes.
The only bright spot for Stayton was a single by Mitchell in the first inning.
Dobmeier took the win for the Cubs, lasting seven innings and giving up just two hits and no runs while striking out 14 and walking one.
Stanley was on the mound for Stayton. He went six and a third innings, allowing six runs on eight hits, striking out six and walking zero. Salisbury threw two-thirds of an inning out of the bullpen.
Meanwhile, Newport collected eight hits, including two each by Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Torres. Kaden Bruns and Cole Wiles pinched two bags each as the cubs ran wild on the paths with six stolen bases.
Mitchell led Stayton with two hits in two at-bats. Stayton was sure-handed and didn't commit a single error. Goodman made the most plays with six.
