Judging by Wednesday’s performances, the Humboldt Eagles 19Us might want to use wood bats more of the time.

The local American Legion club opted to use the wood bats for a league doubleheader at Siskiyous on Wednesday in order to prepare for the big Casey Yocom wood bat tournament in Reno this weekend.

In 11 innings over the two games, the Eagles scored 28 runs on 38 hits on the way to a comfortable sweep.

Humboldt took the opener 13-1 in five innings and won game two 15-4 in six innings.

With that much offense, obviously there were several standouts, including Arcata’s Nick Parker, who returned from injury to make his season debut and had a huge day at the plate.

Parker finished 5-for-6 with a double and two RBIs over the two games.

Fortuna’s Cole Ayala also had a big day, as he continues his impressive summer with the team, finishing 5-for-6 with five RBIs.

Vincent Agliolo also impressed both on the mound and at the plate.

The 2022 Arcata graduate was 3-for-4 with two triples and two RBIs in game one, before pitching three hitless innings for the win on the mound in game two.

Alexander Sorensen got the win in game one, tossing three innings of one-hit ball, with Daniel Osborne closing out the game and striking out five in two innings.

Also in game one, Parker Rodgers was 3-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI, while Matt Letter and Egan Nyberg each finished 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Rylan Lommori also had a good day and finished 4-for-4 with an RBI in game two, while Jared Dixon was 2-for-2 with three runs and two RBIs and Osborne finished 2-for-4 with an RBI.

The Eagles are now 14-6 overall and 3-1 in league.
