While the Colusa RedHawk baseball team won the first two games at its 11th Annual Mike West Invitational Tournament, it was still no match for Mother Nature, who was able to wipe out the rest of the tournament.
Last Tuesday, Colusa opened play with a doubleheader against Fort Bragg, where they outscored the Timberwolves 20-3 over the two games.
In the early contest, the RedHawks jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but Fort. Bragg kept it close until the fifth inning, when Colusa put four runs on the board then followed up with three in the bottom of the sixth to claim the 10-1 victory.
Seth Kalisuch had a big day, going 3 for 4 with three RBI, while Sutter Moss went 2 for 3, with two RBI, and Joel Magallon also picked up a pair of hits.
Luke Kalfsbeek went five innings on the mound, striking out seven, yielding no earned runs and just two hits.
In the nightcap, the RedHawks cruised to a 10-2 win, as Bo Coronado not only turned in five innings of one-hit ball on the hill, but also went 3 for 4 at the plate and knocked in two runs as well.
Moss was a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate, while Magallon finished with two more hits and an RBI.
Kalfsbeek doubled and accounted for five RBI.
Colusa attempted to get in a game with Los Molinos the following day, but could only complete an inning before the game was called on account of rain.
In that one frame, Will McCoy struck out the side, while Magallon, Moss and Peyton Humphrey each recorded hits.
Now 3-1, the RedHawks were scheduled to host Durham on Tuesday, then travel to face the Trojans on Friday and Vacaville Christian on Saturday. ■
