Starter Caleb King surrendered just one hit over six innings and fellow senior Jack Stempel collected three hits and four RBIs Saturday to lead the Taft High baseball team to a 10-1 non-league victory at Pleasant Hill.
They have a 10-run mercy rule in Oregon high school baseball for a reason -- and that reason might be pitching ace Jack Stempel and the players supporting him at the plate and in the field for the Taft High baseball team.
The Taft team was the only team to field a team score, having 4 players post an 18 hole score. Maya Hatton tied for first, shooting an 83. Violet Palermini, Olivia baker, and Sammy Halferty rounded out the final three varsity scores.
