ILWACO - Looking absolutely Ruthian, Logan Manecke hit a grand slam home run to centerfield to end the first game by mercy rule 14-4 and then she homered in game two and Alexa Wirkkala hit two dingers to pace Ilwaco to a 16-0 three-inning win over White Salmon in Long Beach Wednesday, May 4.

Sydney Ward pitched a one-hitter in the second game, walking one and striking out four in three frames. She walked six and struck out five in the opener, tossing a three-hitter in five innings.

The wins were Trico League affairs and keep the Lady Fishermen in the hunt for a district playoff berth. They are the only Pacific County diamond team to still be alive for post-season play, but realistically need a sweep of LaCenter and Kalama to clinch a district berth. Ilwaco is now 4-6 in league play and 6-6 overall, while White Salmon sinks to 1-11 in the Trico.
