The North Tahoe baseball team went 2-1 in a 2A crossover tournament at Lampe Park in Gardnerville over the weekend to improve to 10-4 overall.

The Lakers opened the tournament with a 13-3 win over ROP on Friday and followed with a 10-1 rout against Silver Stage the same day. North Tahoe then ended the tourney with a 4-1 loss to Pershing County on Saturday.

Sophomore Wildon DesLauriers started and went the distance to earn the win against Silver Stage, allowing only the one run on four hits in five innings. He struck out eight hitters and did not issue a walk.

The Lakers scored three runs in the first inning to give DesLauriers an early cushion. They added four more in the third and three in the fourth, while Silver Stage scored its lone run in the fourth.

North Tahoe had 14 hits, with Connor Altick and Shane Christian picking up three hits apiece. Baird Bishop and Brendon Arnold each had two hits, while Bishop, Christian, Arnold and Colin Spencer each delivered two RBIs. Mitchell Myers and Arnold both had triples.

Pershing County broke open a scoreless tie with a four-run third inning, which proved to be all it needed as the Lakers scored only once in the fourth off of starting pitcher Dillon Wanner. Wanner fanned nine and gave up just three hits in five innings of work.

Nelson had the Lakers’ only RBI, while Christian, Spencer and Alex Tyler recorded a hit apiece. Spencer started and took the tough loss. He allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out six along the way.

Stas were not available from the ROP game.

UP NEXT: The Lakers are scheduled to host a Mount Rose League doubleheader against Sparks on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The games will be played at Governor’s Field in Reno.
