Temperatures in the 90s didn’t adversely affect the Humboldt Eagles 19Us on Thursday, as they swept an opening day doubleheader at the Eugene tournament in Oregon.

The Eagles comfortably won both games, getting the better of the Post 58 Crushers 10-4 in their opener and beating the Untouchables out of Washington 10-2 later in the day.

Ethan Thomas pitched six innings for the win in game one, allowing three runs and striking out five.

He got plenty of support from his offense, with six different Eagles players combining for 11 hits.

Daniel Osborne led the way and finished 3-for-4, while Cody Collins was 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI.

Rogan Bode also was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, while Willie Bommelyn was 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Cole Ayala also had a double and an RBI and two walks, while Will Mager added a double and an RBI and Caden Vance drove in two runs.

Chase Coleman and Bode each pitched in relief.

In game two, Cooper Ohlsen pitched 5.2 innings for the win on the hill, allowing just two runs and striking out five.

Cayden Lee had the hot bat in the win and was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

Collins and Mager each also had a double, with the latter driving in two runs, and Jeran Ford was 1-for-3 with an RBI.

Cayden Danbrauskas closed out the game on the mound.

The Eagles, who improved to 17-7-1, will continue tournament play against the Boys of Summer out of Bellevue, Washington, at 10 a.m. on Friday.
