LEWISTON — The visiting Moscow Blue Devils blanked the Lewis-Clark Cubs in both installments of an American Legion baseball doubleheader Tuesday at Harris Field, winning 10-0 and 16-0.

Hayden Thompson threw nine strikeouts in five innings in Game 1 for Moscow and had had three base hits in Game 2, while Preston Boyer had three strikeouts as he closed out the first game and made two base hits with a triple to boot.

Chad Redinger provided four hits in the second game and tripled in both as he totaled five hits.

Isaac Staszkow had five hits of his own on the day with three RBI in Game 2, and pitched all five innings of that contest with three strikeouts before the Blue Devils prevailed by mercy rule.

“Moscow’s a very experienced club,” L-C coach Kent Knigge said. “They’re aggressive hitters, and we’ve just got to clean up our fielding and keep moving forward.”

Tucker Konkol pitched three strikeouts for the Cubs (1-3) in the second game, while teammate Nathan Somers made base hits in both.

Colfax 46, LRS 44

COLFAX — The Bulldogs held off Northeast 2B League boys’ basketball rival Lind-Ritzville/Sprague in what coach Reece Jenkin called a “really close, gritty basketball game.”

Colfax (7-2, 7-2) led 27-20 at halftime before the visitors narrowed the gap in the latter stages. With a single-possession lead on the line, Colfax got the ball and hung on through the crucial final moments of the game after a missed LRS free-throw attempt.

Seth Lustig hit three field goals from beyond the arc and had a team-high 16 points for Colfax, while his brother John also reached double digits with 10. Mason Gilchrist had 10 rebounds along with two points.
