ORFORD — The beat goes on for the surging White River Valley baseball team.

The upstart Wildcats beat host Rivendell, 10-0, in five innings on Thursday afternoon behind a strong one-hit performance from starting pitcher Timber Russell.

Russell went all five innings for the Wildcats, striking out three while walking three. Coach Devin Cilley was impressed with Russell’s effort, which often left the Rivendell hitters off balance at the plate.

Jacob Barry sparked the WRV attack, going 3-for-3 with a double, three RBIs and a run scored. The Wildcats are now 7-0 in their debut season to remain atop the VPA Division III standings.

Jake Hewitt was also 3-for-3, driving in one and scoring twice. Logan Martin had two hits, two runs scored and a RBI. Gabe Feeney singled and scored two runs. Carder Stratton was 1-for-2 with a run scored. Russell helped his own cause, going 1-for-3 with a double.

The D-IV Raptors dropped to 3-2 with the loss; both losses have come against D-III foes while Rivendell has three blowout wins over D-IV competition.

The Wildcats are back in action at Leland & Gray on Friday. Rivendell hosts Woodstock on Saturday.
