Prep highlights: Harteloo, Masterson lift Ridgefield baseball


Drew Hartleoo homered and Brody Masterson had had run-scoring double during a pivotal fourth-inning rally as the Ridgefield baseball team beat Mark Morris 6-4 on Friday in Longview.

After Reed Fry’s RBI single helped Ridgefield take a 3-1 lead in the second inning, the Monarch rallied to tie the game 3-3 after three.

Masterson’s RBI double gave Ridgefield a 5-3 lead in the top of the fourth. Then Harteloo’s home run added some insurance in the sixth as the Spudders (8-5 in league) pulled closer to the first-place Monarchs in the 2A Greater St. Helens League.

Patrick Bartroff didn’t allow an earned run in three innings of relief and went 2 for 4. Deven Savella picked up the save with two scoreless innings of work.

Kellen Desbiens was 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI for the Monarchs (9-2 in league).
