Six errors in Game 2 proved to be the downfall of the Tenino baseball team, failing to get a sweep over Elma and instead settling for a split with each side winning by the final of 3-2 on Saturday afternoon in Elma.

All three runs scored by the Eagles were unearned in the second contest. They walked off the Beavers (12-2, 6-1 1A Evergreen) on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh. That came after Tenino tied the game in the top half on a two-out error.

Austin Gonia crossed home plate both times in the nightcap as the Beavers didn't register a hit. It was a far difference from the opener where they got on base frequently and took the lead with a two-run double off the bat of Hunter Sweet.

Oregon recruit Kellan Knox dazzled on the mound in Game 1, striking out 14 batters in over six innings on the mound. Jack Burkhardt closed the door on the victory in relief. Tenino, who hosts Eatonville on Tuesday, drew nine walks in the opener.
