NASELLE — Cheleena Squibb hit a home run and two doubles for a 5 RBI game as Winlock beat Naselle 9-1 Friday, May 3. The Cardinals improved to 12-5. Naselle is 12-1, not counting a pair of double-headers versus Montesano JV.

After Brynn Tarabochia pitched a 1-2-3 first, Squibb came up to lead off the second and launched a home run to right field. In the third her high fly ball landed in right field for a double, driving in two more to make it 4-0. In the fifth, Tarabochia started her off with a fastball on the inside corner above the belt, then got her off balance with low off-speed pitches, inducing a groundout with a 1-2 sinker. But in the seventh, Squibb drove home two more with a double to left.

The Comets held the rest of the lineup in check. Catcher Hollie Haataia made a diving catch of a foul popup way to the right of home plate to end the second, hanging on as her glove went to the ground. Tarabochia used a lightning-quick pickoff move to nail Addison Hall to end the third. Taylor Gudmundsen ranged to her right for a slick backhand play at second in the fourth.

Kylee Tarabochia drove in Naselle’s only run with a third-inning single that brought home Hailey Weston.
