Barlow 7, Pendleton 0 (Friday)
Pendleton opened the tournament with a loss to a very strong Barlow team that draws players from Barlow, Gresham, Park Rose and Sandy, yielding five runs in the fifth inning.
The contest came down to a six-consecutive hit attack in the fifth inning that led to five runs, outside of that, the game was a two-run affair. Starter Dusty Alberts was relieved after the first three, but Barlow greeted Josh McKinstry with three more.
"We didn't play bad," Cary said.
