Local Baseball Roundup: Pepsi splits twin bill with Sheldon

Zach Diehl’s RBI double in the top of the seventh inning lifted Sheldon to a 4-3 win over Pepsi in the second game of a Class A American Legion baseball league doubleheader on Monday night at Bill Gray Stadium at Legion Field.

Will Reddekopp pitched a four-hitter as the Bottlecaps (9-3, 2-2 league) picked up a 3-2 win in the opener.

Reddekopp, who’ll be a junior at Roseburg High School this fall, allowed two earned runs with six strikeouts and three walks. Sheldon had the tying run on third base in the top of the seventh, but Reddekopp retired Kellen Strahm on a groundout to shortstop to end the contest.

“He struggled the first inning (with three walks), but was fantastic the rest of the way,” Pepsi coach Justin O’Byrne said of Reddekopp. “He continued to get ahead in the count and threw strikes.”

Pepsi scored all of its runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Isaac Hartwick reached base on an error, Reddekopp was hit by a pitch and Grant Ronk followed with a sacrifice bunt to advance both runners. Justin Grubbs hit into a fielder’s choice to load the bases.

Treven Jacks followed with a two-run single and Grubbs also scored on the play.

In Game 2, the Irish rallied from a 3-1 deficit, scoring twice in the sixth and once in the seventh.

Hartwick was 2-for-4 with two doubles, Reddekopp knocked in two runs and Camran Lierman added an RBI double. Hartwick went 5 1/3 innings before being relieved by Zack Watkins. Hartwick allowed six hits and three runs, fanning five and walking three.

“It was frustrating,” O’Byrne said of the split. “We were good enough on the mound and defensively, but offensively couldn’t string together enough hits.”
