Truckee baseball splits at Dayton

The Truckee High baseball team split a league doubleheader at Dayton on Saturday, winning the first game 9-6 and losing the second 7-1.

The Wolverines are now 2-4 in the Northern 3A and Dayton is 5-1.

Senior Keven Sahlberg, Truckee’s No. 1 starter, effectively shut down the red-hot Dust Devils, who had outscored league opponents 77-15 their first four games.

Sahlberg struck out 14 Dayton hitters while issuing five walks and allowing nine hits. He also worked out of trouble consistently, stranding 11 runners on base.

“He pitched great,” said Truckee head coach Mike Ellis. “He really stepped up.”

Truckee used a balanced offensive effort to accumulate its nine runs, as seven players had hits and five had RBIs.

Justin Vosburgh went 3 for 3 with an RBI, Trevor Allen was 2 for 4 with an RBI, Kevin Decker 2 for 5 with two doubles and an RBI, Sahlberg 1 for 4 with an RBI, John DePew 1 for 3 with an RBI, Pablo Esquivel 1 for 4 and Myles Allen 1 for 1.

Vosburgh pitched the distance in Game 2. Ellis said he threw a good game, allowing just three earned runs on nine hits.

At the plate, Esquivel went 3 for 4, Sahlberg 2 for 3, Decker 1 for 3 with a double and Michael Taylor 1 for 3.

In a nonleague game on Thursday, the Wolverines lost 10-4 at Colfax.
