“We had some timely hits, which we didn’t get on Friday,” Taylor said. “And we executed some plays nicely. I’m really happy with how we’re starting to put it together offensively, and play well defensively as well.”
“It’s been a fun journey,” Dohrman said. “I went from not knowing what I was doing to slowly gaining some knowledge. I wouldn’t say I know everything, but it’s fun to find a challenge and continue to improve. I like meeting new people and all the training is kind of the icing on the cake.”
Troy Shepard struck out nine and allowed two hits over six shutout innings, and the Coeur d’Alene Lumbermen “AA” team opened play at the Josh Dickerson Memorial Tournament with a 5-0 victory over Diamond Sports Elite Black 18U on Friday in Kent, Wash.
