Logan baseball team sweeps doubleheader

Staff report

The Logan baseball team began its season with a resounding doubleheader victory Friday at Dora, including a combined no-hitter.

The Longhorns opened the twinbill with an 11-1 victory that was shortened to five innings, then completed the sweep with 21-0 victory in the second game. It also was the season-opener for Dora.

Brock Burns drove in three runs on a double and triple in the first game for Logan. The Longhorns scored in every inning.

Logan pitchers Dante Sanchez, Garrett Bollinger and Greyson Bollinger combined to allow just three hits and struck out 15 in five innings.

In the second game, Logan starting pitcher Gabe Milakovich and Kaeden Stoner each combined for 14 strikeouts in five innings during the combined no-hitter. Milakovich allowed two walks in four innings, and Stoner walked none in his single inning.

Park Strong went 3-for-4 with four RBI with a double and a triple in the second game.

“Out pitching was the difference in the games,” Logan coach Kyle Griffiths said. “If we can get our bats going a little more, we will be tough to beat.”
