Two pitches.

That’s all it took for the Roseburg High baseball team to take a lead against Sprague in the second round of the OSAA Class 6A playoffs on Wednesday.

Spencer Six led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple on the first pitch he saw from Sprague starter Michael Soper. Junior Caden Johnson followed with a single on the very next pitch to put sixth-seeded Roseburg in front and the Indians controlled the game from there to earn a 5-2 victory over the No. 22 Olympians at Bill Gray Stadium at Legion Field.

The Indians (17-6) advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2013 and will travel to No. 3 Clackamas (22-7) on Friday. Game time is scheduled for 5 p.m.
