Hodgen Distributing allowed 24 runs off 25 hits as it dropped a doubleheader to Pepsi Pak 14-2 and 10-2 on Thursday.

Hodgen’s only lead of the afternoon came when Gabe Umbarger scored on a wild pitch in the top of the first inning in Game 2, but the Pendleton 18U club had just eight hits on the day and struck out 18 times.

Jeb Callahan threw a complete game for Pepsi Pak in the opener, and then hit two home runs to drive in four runs in the night cap.

Cort Dietrich homered for Pepsi in Game 1.

Quinn Doherty and Avery Deutz were the only Hodgen players to get a hit in both games, and Ryan Stahl was 2 for 3 in Game 2.

Chris Large took the brunt of the damage on the mound in the opener, and pitched 3 1/3 innings allowing 12 runs (seven earned) on 13 hits.

Stahl was Hodgen’s starter in Game 2, and went two full before leaving with seven runs allowed on six hits. Brett Swanson pitched four innings of relief and gave up three runs on five hits.
