COLFAX, Wash. - Jode Coil hit for the cycle Saturday to power Heppner past Colfax (Wash.) 14-5 in a nonleague baseball game in the Colfax Tournament.

Coil was 4 for 5 with six RBI, including a home run. Teammate Nick Christman was 2 for 5 with two RBI, and Josh Gutierrez was 2 for 4 for the Mustangs (2-1).

"Pitching-wise it was a complete difference from Friday's game," Heppner coach Rick Johnston said. "We need to throw strikes and keep runners off the bases, and I think we accomplished that."

On Friday, Heppner fell to Freeman 7-4.

"Going up to Colfax has always been a shot in the arm for us, and we had a great outing this time," Johnston said. "The bottom of the order put the ball in play and got us some runs."

The Mustangs host Grant Union on Friday.

Weston-McEwen 5,

Prescott 3

PRESCOTT, Wash - Weston-McEwen picked up its first victory of the season Saturday with a 5-3 decision over Prescott, Wash.

The TigerScots (1-4) battled back from a 3-0 deficit to even things with three runs in the sixth inning.

Josh Fairbank blasted a two-run triple in the eighth inning to give the TigerScots the win.

Winning pitcher Tyler Greenwalt came in relief of Travis Eastwood in the fifth inning and allowed no hits, one walk and fanned six batters.

"I thought we did pretty well, I tip my hat to Greenwalt and Greenwood, who pitched pretty well," Weston-McEwen coach Casey Madsen said. "We still need to eliminate our errors and work on getting it done at the dish."

Weston-McEwen hosts Joseph on Tuesday.
