HAYDEN — Bryant Hansen had an RBI single and pitched three no-hit innings in relief as the Sandpoint 10U All-Stars comeback bid fell just short against CDA Blue, 5-4, in an Idaho District 1 Little League loser-out game held Wednesday at Croffoot Field in Hayden.

In the bottom of the second inning, CDA Blue put up all five of their runs after reaching on a couple of errors and putting together back-to-back-to-back hits. Down but not out, Sandpoint rallied for four runs in the top of the fifth inning. Hansen and Isaac Inman had RBI singles during the rally while Nash Albertson was able to knock in a run after reaching on an error. 

In the bottom of the fifth, Hansen, who gave up just two walks and struck out three batters over his three no-hit innings, went 1-2-3 after Sandpoint allowed the lead-off hitter to reach on an error. In the sixth, Sandpoint fought hard, even getting the tying run into scoring position, but couldn’t quite get the base hit they were looking for.

Nash Oliver started the game and struck out three batters over two innings. Sawyer Olsen and Lane Raykowski also had singles in the game for Sandpoint.
