The Humboldt Eagles 19Us are having fun in Oregon.

On Thursday, for the second straight day, they won a wild game, rallying from a four-run deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat Klamath Falls 7-6 in their opening game at the Medford tournament.

The win came one day after they exploded for 21 hits in a 16-15 win over Roseburg in a non-tournament game.

Matt Letter was instrumental in Thursday’s victory, hitting a key double off the left file wall to fuel the late rally.

The Fortuna junior led the way at the plate and finished 3-for-4 and also was one of four Eagles pitchers to throw a scoreless inning in relief after the team fell behind 6-1 in the third.

Alexander Sorensen, Daniel Osborne and Ethan Pesch each also impressed with a scoreless inning on the mound, with Pesch getting the victory.

Parker Rodgers also had a big day at the plate and finished 2-for-3 with three RBIs, while Vincent Agliolo and Osborne each went 2-for-3.

The Eagles, who improved to 10-4, will continue tourney play with a pair of games on Friday, including a rematch with Roseburg at 9 a.m.

They also play Las Vegas at noon.
