Carson Horton threw a complete game and had a three-run double in the opener as Castle Rock swept White Salmon 8-3 and 13-2 in the Southwest 1A Trico Division baseball finale Saturday at home.
The result allows Rock (9-5 in league, 13-6) to leapfrog La Center and claim the Trico’s third seed to next week’s 1A district tournament. The Rockets will host Tenino in the opening round Tuesday at noon.
Horton allowed just three hits and struck out 11 in Game 1, while Andy Voelker went 3 for 4, Mason Klingberg finished 2 for 2 with a double and Robbie Simpson was a defensive standout in center field.
In the nightcap, Nate Williamson went 2 for 4 with two RBIs, T.J. Catlin had a two-run home run and Nathan Carroll earned the win on the mound and was 2 for 3 at the plate.
