The Eagles have won again.

After picking up a 5-0 loss on the road Friday in their first league game of the season, against the Pendleton Buckaroos, the Hood River varsity boys went on to defeat the Milwaukie Mustangs 3-1 at home Monday afternoon.

The win brings the Eagles to 4-3 in the early season, with upcoming games against Woodburn, St. Helens and Cleveland to ready the team for Intermountain Conference action, which will start at Mountain View High School on April 8.

Along with Friday’s shut-out loss, bad news for the team is that, according to Coach Craig Webster, pitcher Jordan Peldyak blew out his arm in the game and is expected to be out for the rest of the season due to the elbow-area injury.

In Monday’s game against the Mustangs, Travis Carratt pitched all seven innings. Carratt, who picked up five strikeouts and only one walk, led the Eagles’ defense, which held the visiting team to only one run off two hits and two errors.

“That’s pretty outstanding, when a pitcher’s strikeout to walk ratio is that low,” Webster said. “We had a good game defensively and some excellent pitching today. We didn’t hit very well, but we hit timely.”

The team’s timely hitting knocked in runs in the fourth and sixth innings, including three doubles and two RBI’s from Adam Coerper, Carratt and Elliott Sherrell in the sixth to take the game.
