American Legion Baseball: Hilander Dental splits with Mavericks | Sports

CAMAS — It was like a trip to the ice cream parlor for the Hilander Dentists when they made like a banana and split with the Vancouver Mavericks on Sunday. The senior Lower Columbia Baseball Club took the opener by a score of 7-6 before suffering a bit of a tooth ache in an 11-4 loss to wrap the doubleheader.

In the first game Kolten Lindstrom picked up the win on the bump for the Dentists, pitching five innings with just one run allowed. Drew Miller finished the final two innings, but made it interesting as Vancouver plated five runs in their comeback attempt.

Carson Ness led Hilander Dental at the plate with a 3-for-4 day that included a double. Lindstrom helped himself out with a pair of hits that included a double and three RBIs.

The Dentists picked up four runs in the first inning and added three all-important insurance runs in the bottom half of the sixth frame.

Jackson Rohl notched a double for LCBC, while Samson Gentry added an RBI single and three stolen bases.
