Colville Hangs On To Second Place

Frontier League baseball looks like a Cheney cakewalk as the season nears the halfway point, but four teams continue to jockey for second place.

Colville (5-3) stayed slightly ahead of the pack Tuesday when Jimmy Day walked with the bases full in the bottom of the eighth to help edge visiting East Valley 3-2.

Bill Tincup’s two-run double in the fourth gave the Knights a lead, but Colville’s Brady Noble had a two-run single in the fifth.

EV (4-5) tied idle West Valley for fourth place.
