Indians down Chewelah, lose to Lakeside

Staff Writer

COLVILLE—Colville High split a pair of Northeast A League baseball games last week, downing Chewelah 4-1 behind a strong outing from starter and winning pitcher, Brayden Flugel.
On a sunny, warm Thursday afternoon, the Indians booted the ball around to the tune of 11 errors and lost to Lakeside, 10-5.
More bad news.
In a doubleheader late last month at Medical Lake that Colville won on the field, a game two protest by the Cardinals’ coach was upheld. That rule, which dealt with pitchers and how many innings they can legally (WIAA rule) throw, was upheld last week. The game will go down officially as a 1-0 win for ML.
The Indians came from behind to post an 8-5 win on the field.
Colville (4-4) was solid against Chewelah, putting together seven hits behind Flugel (3-0), who had seventh inning relief help from Eli Butts.
Flugel and Butts combined on a five-hitter.
Colville was led at the plate by catcher Tanner Sandaine’s two hits.
The Indians got scoring started with a single run in the second inning and added two more in the third and another run in the fourth inning.
In the loss to Lakeside, the Indians simply booted it around way too much. Colville pitchers also issued six walks.
Lakeside touched CHS starter Devin Lembcke for five first inning runs. The Eagles, who collected seven hits according to the Colville book, added another run in the second, one in the fourth and three more in the fifth inning.
Colville plated one run in the third and four in the seventh.
Flugel and Riley Harbolt both doubled for CHS.
