North Tahoe baseball | Colin Spencer dominant in complete-game win

North Tahoe’s Colin Spencer mowed down the opposing Portola lineup in a 3-2 win at Governors Bowl in Reno on Monday, as the senior right-hander recorded 17 strikeouts while allowing only four hits in a seven-inning complete game.

The Lakers struck first with a two-run first inning and added a run in the third for a 3-0 lead. Portola scored once in the fourth and once more in the top of the seventh to close to within one run.

But Spencer powered out of the outing, needing 132 pitches to close the deal. He walked only two batters and allowed one earned run.

Spencer needed to be good, as the Lakers scratched out only four hits in the game — one apiece by Baird Bishop, Shane Christian, Mitchell Myers and Spencer. Bishop had a triple and two RBIs, while Christian scored two runs and Spencer one.

The Lakers also competed in a Division III crossover tournament against the Lahontan League over the weekend, but they had to forfeit all three games because they didn’t have enough players. Coach Matt Drury said a couple of players are still competing in skiing events, while four others were injured.

The Lakers are scheduled to begin Mount Rose League play with a doubleheader at Sparks on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
